Place this soaker hose ring around newly-planted trees, shrubs and plants for perfect irrigation. Provides moisture directly to the roots where they need it most, while reducing water usage up to 70%! Installs above or below ground, or cover with mulch to make it practically invisible. The Dramm Soaker Hose features a thicker wall than other soaker hoses to eliminate the “geyser effect" spraying out of the hose. Made in the USA from recycled materials and designed with crush proof nickel-plated brass couplings.
