Okay, this is going to show you all just how vain I am! I have six large rose beds that are my pride and joy. We have them all outfitted with black soaker hoses. They are on timers and get a really nice watering that way but the hoses are really unsightly. None of my many rose and perennial beds are mulched; I cultivate them all by hand. (Good thing Iâ€™m retired.) I donâ€™t want to use mulch because I want the beds to look more natural. I thought about perhaps planting a ground cover in the rose beds to camouphlage the hoses. I have ivy already in one of largest beds, but it isnâ€™t full enough to be helpful yet. I didn't plant it there deliberatly with thay in mind, but it does look pretty. Has anyone done this and if so what did you use? Thanks much~ Cathty W.
