I buried the soaker about 2" into the ground. It's easy to make turns with it and it lays flat in the dirt. It sends water out through tiny holes about an inch apart. It seems to work as advertised. Best thing is how it stays in place and delivers water.
I have 2 of these and have had them for over 2 years. I thought they were so expensive and now I see they are worth every penny. They are wonderful hoses and on other sites come in many other really fun colors. The orange is all that is currently available here but it is fun and colorful too. I am a die hard gardener and spend my life dragging hoses. These colors are so great in that one does not trip over them as you can really see it on the ground. And it is never mistaken for a snake. That has happened to me several times. The hoses do not leak, they are really a great quality of rubber and the couplings are made of brass. The hose might kink every so often but not nearly as frequently as some other hoses.It is a great weight and easy to drag around and coil up. I love these hoses and will be buying more. Dramm makes fabulous gardening products in delicious colors.
I have used many different types of soaker hoses, this one is my favorite by far. I bought the first one in 2009, I still use it. As long as you don't use too much water pressure, it will last a long time.
