Well, we bought a 175 ft hose last year, and the nozzle broke so we were going to swap it out, but we couldnt get the $#*%(&% off! I decided to just cut the end off, and turn it into a soaker hose. You know how I spent my day...a hammer and nail, every 12" or so, for 175 feet LOL Now I'm wondering, should I bury it under the mulch or leave it on top? I dont like the way it looks exposed, but worried that covering will clog it up. Will it? I was using hardwood mulch, but will probably be changing to compost 'mulch' since it's free and looks good. Any advice? Thanks!
