I bought my first soaker hose! Question??
I just bought a soaker hose. Seen lots of you mentioning them and thought I'd buy one. It's so cool!! I'm really impressed. Can't wait to get back there to buy some more.
Now that I've realized the benefits of having them, I'm thinking I want to run them thru a few beds and anchor them in so I can just hook up the hose to the end when I want to water that section.
Do you bury them underground or just leave them on the top? I read if you bury them they should be at least 4" down and hook no more than 100 ft together on one section.
Do you have to put them away in the winter? Will they crack and split if you leave them under the snow from November to April? (I'm in WI) I'd really like to be able to leave them but don't want to have to replace them every year either.
Thanks for any comments or suggestions. I'm just so excited to be able to get away from hand watering and use that time more efficently while the soaker hoses do all the work of watering!
