Thanks for the question.
A good loamy topsoil would be more than adequate with a topping of compost. In fact you can probably lighten up on the compost a little.
Both bubblers and drip irrigation work well. You will probably get more uniform moisture with drip and less clogging with bubblers. Water quality, and flow rates need to be considered for both.
I hope this helps.
