I'm setting up a simple irrigation system on my farm to deliver water to my fruit trees. What I want to do is to run a hose (a simple garden hose) through 1.25" schedule 40 PVC pipe to protect it and then bury it under a shallow trench (maybe 6-8") right in front of my garage apron. Then I would fill in over top of the pipe with sand and then gravel. Our cars would drive over it, but no heavy machinery would drive over top of the pipe. To be clear, I am simply interested in getting the hose protected and out of the way. I'm also looking to fill in the drop off at the end of my garage apron with rock, so the idea is that I could kill two birds with one stone here.
Will this work? I'd hate to do all of this work and then crush the pipe and destroy the hose the first time I drive over it. Thanks for your help!
