I am using soaker hoses for the first time in my vegetable garden. From what I have read they are typically set up 12-18 inches apart. This is the spacing I have right now. The hoses are working great but are not saturating more than about 3 inches either side of a hose so I have some dry spots. I let the hoses run for about an hour and the soil is very well saturated in its local area but again a lot of dry spots. My soil is very light and airy and I am wondering if this adds to the problem of not spreading out very far and just going straight down. I guess the simple solution is to just move the hoses closer together but then I am kind of crowding my beds with hose. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
