Just to get on the same page, do you mean spigots/hose bibs or irrigation heads?

Don't really see why you couldn't though either way.

if you mean underground, pex crimp fittings are not rated for burial. If you need to bury them, you'll need to use Sharkbites.

Also, PEX cannot be exposed to sunlight/UV.
