Our garden got a present today…its very own homemade soaker hose. We had several old hoses that had tears and weak spots and we turned them into a soaker hose. All it took was a hammer, a nail and some hammering. We poked holes about every 5-6 inches, then weaved it up and down the rows.
During the first use, it’s important to check the plants and soil after a few minutes to make sure that they’re getting water. Also, keep an eye out for major leaks. You don’t want the water to puddle. You might have to add a few more holes or re-adjust the direction of the spray.
Our Garden is so happy!
