irrigation advice needed

I need advice. Any help is very much appreciated.
I know I can put sprinklers, but I have a real bad experience with it. One day, I was not home, my sprinkler system went bisurk, and when I came back home my slope was gone.
It has cost me a lot of money and hsutles to fix the slope. I have disconnected the irrigation so it does not repeat anymore.
What I need is effective way to water my garden when I do not spend too much time.I can turn it on and off with no problem. I have time. Do not need anything complicated and authomatic. But must be very reliable, so it does not wash my slope away anymore.
At the same time I do not want go with a hose and manually water it. It is too much to do even for me.
1. What kind of irrigation system would you recommend? What is the name? 2. Where do I get it?

I just finished setting up a kickass system to water my eight raised beds. I used sprinkler hoses (like a soaker hose but with a little hole every foot or so in the hose - it sprays in whatever direction the hose is laid and once in place, you can add a few extra holes to cover areas that are missed). You can try soaker hoses but I found I'd need much more length for the same coverage...so it really depends on the size of the garden, I guess.
You could string the hose along to ensure maximum coverage. If you use more than one hose, you can get a splitter easily enough and attach a timer to the splitter. I set the timer for the early morning (between 5 and 7 am) - that way, if a timer decided to go beserk on you, you'd catch it before you left in the morning. I haven't had a problem with any of the timers (Yard Works from Canadian Tire).
I love the fact that I save at least an hour a day by not having to water the beds. Well worth the investment.
