I'm in the market for a garden hose. I have just started looking into them and hope I can get Permies advice and recommendations.
I went in a store to look at what they had in stock and they were about wiped out! An employee recommended an extra heavy duty hose which seems a good choice to me. It was drinking water safe, and hot water safe which I expect I wouldn't need. Another option was a really good deal, until I realized it wasn't drinking water safe. I figure if I can't drink out of it, plants shouldn't either.
Can I get some help? Would the extra heavy duty one be fine? Are there better options? I don't have unlimited monies but cheap costs more in the long run!
So far I haven't put effort into ground covers. In the past year I've been spending more time identifying and learning about what is already here. I like the idea of creeping thyme on a walkway but went with wood chips for now. I also would love strawberries.
