LETS PUT IT TOGETHER
HOSE FAUCET TIMER
Measure out how much area you are trying to cover and how long of a hose you will need. Keep in mind the layout of your garden if you have separate sections or one long area for your garden.
Stakes will help place your hose exactly where you want it and keep it from moving around. You want them to be at least 6 inches but the longer, the sturdy they will hold the hose into place.
A faucet timer will help you set a watering schedule. There are many different options from high-tech Bluetooth to simple ones. Make sure to take into account how long it takes for the soaker hoses to give enough water.
To ensure your garden gets watered evenly route the main hose in the middle of your garden and place it in between 2 soaker hoses. That way you will have consistent water pressure throughout.
One of the best and most versatile reasons for having a watering system like this is you can expand and adjust this system to your preference or if your gardening space changes. You can easily add more or fewer soaker hoses and lay them out in a different pattern year after year. Just make sure that at the end of the season, you clean and put away all the hoses. If left out for the winter your soaker hoses will become clogged with dirt and won't water well next year.
