Helpful tip from The Garden Geeks: Soaker hose trick. Never install your soaker hose or underground watering system near a pavement or sidewalk. The pavements heat the ground around it, stopping the spread around it making it a complete waste of water. Always install them underground at least 6" deep allowing for hoes and rototiller blades to do their work without any damage.
