    Hi Sheila --

    Do you have access to spigots?  I would suggest drip lines.  They are more eco-friendly and better for the plants. They are also available at Home Depot, Lowes, Walmart, and online.

    yeah. I would suggest it too. I have also recently bought it from home depot. it is because it was the nearest store I can access. but you can buy it from anywhere. I chose home depot cuz they were near to me and were giving some great discounts and return and refund policies.
    If you are going for it I would definitely suggest reading home depot return policy for home depot and other stores' policies too.

    I agree home depot is great in this service. I also usually shop from home depot.
    Not only do return refunds but they also provide an excellent home depot price match policy. This assists in getting any product at the lowest price available in the market. We have plenty of options to choose where we can shop so we have to choose which provides the best services and rates.
