    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.
