Items Needed:
Hose (any length you need)
Ice Pick
Hammer

Directions:
1. Lay your hose down in your garden around your plants making sure to give enough room at the end to still reach your water. I attached my hose to the rain barrel and then ran it from the rain barrel to the plants.

3. Cover the hose with a thin layer of dirt and / or mulch to cover it.

4. If needed – Add an end cap to the hose, you can find these at any hardware store.

5. You are now ready to water your plants with no effort at all!

I wanted to save money so I used an old hose my father-in-law gave us and I attached my trickle hose to our rain barrel.  This was a great Pinterest find and I am so glad I tried it out!  You should do the same!
