A soaker hose is affordable and simpler alternatives to a complicated drip irrigation system. It's a lay flat PVC garden hose that has fine pinholes on one side. These holes can drip or spray out multi directional water streams to provide an even watering system. They maintain an even water pressure along the hose while slowly releasing water over a 180º angle for better penetration. The lay-flat stabiliser fins prevents kinking and twisting and can be inverted for deep soaking. They can also be used to nail the hose to a fence or similar structure.
Soaker hoses are ideal for use as a watering system for soaking garden beds and vegetable patches. These lay hoses can also be used as irrigation sprinklers for sprinkling lawns and nature strips.
