I made my own landscape fabric pins to hold my soaker hose down in the soil of my raised garden beds. When I purchased the soaker hose I had no idea they had no weight and didn’t stay where I put them so I had to get creative without returning to the farm supply store.
My son wears uniforms to work and every week he brings home 11 new wire hangers. And it’s a good thing he does I had just the use for them. Make landscape fabric anchors for my soaker hose.
I’m not sure what I was thinking when I knew I was planning on making twists and turns with the hose, but the wire hangers worked perfect, all I did was cut the curved bottom section out of both sides of the hanger and it makes perfect pins. No bending or forming required.
Now my soaker hose is staying right where it’s supposed to, and I didn’t have to make a run to town again for anchor pins. I love it when I have a brilliant idea that works out.
