    Do you have any pics of how your soaker hoses look? Do you over with something - mulch?

    @Fire I can take some later, but it's a regular cheap no name hose in a fabric sleeve. Got it in a garden center.  They're made more or less the same I think (unless they're made of latex), the differences usually not in a hose itself but the water pressure people put through them.
    And yep! we cover ours with mulch. 
    Are you looking for one?
