Cool

You can use copper or PVC for a cold water outdoor faucet supply line.
It should be buried below the local frostline to prevent freezing.
You can safely dig around a gas line with a shovel, and run the line under it, if necessary.
Good Luck!

If i intend to use this line only for sprinkling due summer and spring time (Charlotte, NC) do i still have to put this line ( PVC)under ground?

You don't have to bury the line IF you cut-off the water supply to it and drain it to prevent it from freezing and busrting in the winter.
An alternative is to attach a water hose to your existing faucet, and put a quarter-turn ball cut-off on the end of it. The hose will remain pressurized with water.
Good Luck!
