Homemade Drip Irrigation Hose

If you have an old or cracked garden hose lying around it's pretty easy to turn it into a drip irrigation hose. Use an ice pick or other sharp implement to poke holes in the hose. Then cut some scrap fabric into strips and tie those around the hose where you have punched holes. Then cap one end of the hose, hook the other end to the faucet and turn the water on low.

May I ask what the purpose is of tying the cloth strips around the hose? Thanks.

I'd use a drill with a small bit. I've done this before & it will run easier with the holes drilled. It doesn't drill a hole exactly, but the rubber or plastic of the hose will close somewhat after drilling. It's easier to do than punching a hole with some tool.

The cloth strips keep the holes from plugging up with dirt and debris. Plus they help distribute the water evenly as opposed to flow directly out of the punched holes.
