I am planing to install water lines as you can see in the picture. Right now I I have a water hose that runs along the house, I am referring to the segment that goes along the wall between the patio and the house.
The other two segments together with this one are what I am planing to install.
For now I just have a water hose that I run along the line above described. There is a gap space between the house and the patio where a pipe/water hose fits just fine. My plan would be to install the first segment of the future irrigation system and to connect the water hose to it for now (no sprinklers so no water pressure loss) because I want to cover that gap with peanut size decorative stone. Later I would disconnect the water hose and fully install the irrigation system. As an alternate solution I would love to leave the water hose there till I proceed with the irrigation system plans but I am afraid that the water hose is not winter resistant, so my question is: can I put an irrigation system segment there and connect the water hose to it at at the point where the irrigation line reaches the corner of the house?
