Try soaker hoses for your garden!

Our garden community member Steve asks:

"Have you tried underground soaker hoses?

Place the hoses 3-4 inches below the surface, before planting.
Stick twigs in the ground over the hoses and plant between the lines.
Almost no evaporation of precious water
Almost no weeds since the water is underground - no mulch [needed].

Happy plants and a happy gardener."
