This simple dual water point offers easy access to water anywhere in my garden. It includes storage of a permanently attached hose of 50 ft. at the backside, mostly hidden from view. This easy weekend project has a price tag of about $30.00.

Nice project but unfortunately it won’t work in snow states. Unless those posts are burried 4’ deep the frost would heave those up snapping your water line. Should work fine for Florida.

Well said!

However, the length of the posts, as well as the type of pipe and insulation can be simply adapted to local circumstances and building codes.

And Yes, not much to worry about, here in Florida.
