Does anyone have experience with these soaker hoses? This was running for about 15 minutes or so on low pressure. Will it soak the whole bed as I still see dry spots?

you may need to adjust your timer to run long enough to make sure you wet the entire bed to a certain depth...if you find doing this makes some areas too wet, then you may need to reconfigure/ add more length to the soaker hose.

also, the edges of the bed are more exposed to sun/heat and may dry out quicker...so you may want to try running a portion of hose around edge depening on the plants in those boxes.

this is just off the top of my head and I have not installed this type of system yet.
