Do you remember when the garden watering system was you?
You filled the sprinkler can and walked down the rows of plants, watering every little seedling and knowing you were going to have to repeat this process tomorrow?
If you’re like me, you remember how much this process made your back ache. There was a lot of work that went into growing fresh, healthful fruits and vegetables!
Gardening today is just as popular – maybe even more so – than years ago, and garden suppliers have noticed. They’ve created numerous garden watering systems for anyone from the weekend gardener to the serious gardening pro. Anyone can find a solution to their watering needs!
Whether you need a few sprinkler heads in your garden or a lengthy drip system, you can tailor your watering system to fit your needs.
You can get some simple sprinkler heads that can attach to a garden hose. You can even use these in series (two to four heads) on a single water line. Remember those rainbird sprinklers that sprayed way out there? Those are still available, too, and are very popular.
What if you’d like a garden watering system that waters each individual plant? Think drip irrigation. This is where lines are run to each plant, and the water is left on pretty much all the time. The water line is small (about the size of a pencil) and you just connect little drip heads at each plant. This system is easy to use and easy to install as well.
Another alternative is a system that waters rows between your plants. This is a good choice, because it encourages the plants to reach out with their roots for the water, which means you’ll achieve a larger and stronger root system. This means better vegetables and fruits for you!
A garden watering system isn’t hard to put together, and even if you feel you’re not the greatest at building or construction, you can do this.
Check out your local gardening center or home building store. You’ll find simple instructions and plans to design a system that will make your garden grow – like gangbusters!
