Can Quick Connect Be Used For Soaker Hose

Question From: A. Mathias - Fair Play, South Carolina, United States
Q: We have a raised flower box that we built in the back of our yard that is the entire length of our fence. It is 7' long and 3' wide. We are going to fill it with shrubs, sky pencils and perienial flowers.can we use a soaker hose on top the garden soil the length of it and then put our mulch on top? Can we put a quick connect at the end so I dont have to leave my hose connected to it since my hose it at my house 150' away?

A: I see no reason why not. Do invest in a good quality soaker hose, such as Fiskars. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
