Do you have a drip hose that sprays rather than drips? Rather than get rid of the hose, you can re-direct the water back down into the ground where it belongs. Simply take an empty soda or water bottle (clear plastic) and carefully cut off the neck and the bottom. Slit it down one side so it looks like a "C", and push the two cut sides down into the soil over the hole in your drip hose. You can use mulch to hide it and help hold it down. The water will spray into the plastic, then run back down it into the ground. If you have multiple drip hoses joined together that tend to spray at the connection, this is a good solution there as well.
The plastic can become brittle over the summer, so just throw it out at the end of the year when you put your hose away, and start over the next year.
