Just because your Property is complete doesn’t mean the work is done. Although you can hire the same company that did your job to do maintenance on your landscape, in between visits, it’ll be up to you to keep your landscape looking vibrant and healthy.
Especially for plants that require specific watering needs that a sprinkler system can’t provide, you’ll want to invest in fine-touch watering tools.
Today we’ll review some of these tools you can use to help make yard work something relaxing and enjoyable.
Naturally, the most iconic tool is a watering can; however, don’t let the tool fool you. A watering can, can be an essential tool for gardening, especially if there isn’t a hose nearby. To water effectively, ensure water is delivered in small drips rather than a heavy stream. Whether a vegetable garden or a flower garden, watering cans are a great way to provide your plants with enough water.
For parents, watering the garden with a watering can, can be a fun activity to do with their kids to teach them how to care for plants and flowers.
Much like a watering can, a water wand delivers water more gently than just sticking your thumb on the end of a hose. Unlike a watering can, a water wand does require a garden hose to attach to. However, a significant benefit of a water wand is that it more closely mimics rainfall. The spray is effective yet gentle enough not to destroy fragile seedlings, sprouts, and flowers. The length of the wand allows you to water plants at the root without hurting your knees, bending, or crouching. It can also be used to water taller plants without the need for a step stool or ladder.
Garden Hose Nozzle
Though more of a generic watering tool than the water wand, the adjustable garden hose nozzle is commonly used in many homes. While doing the same jobs as a water wand, a flexible hose nozzle can be helpful outside your garden bed, usually because it can provide more water pressure. This water pressure can be useful when spot cleaning in between landscape maintenance visits or removing pests from your vegetable garden without using chemicals.
Only some people have the time to water their plants daily, and they find it relaxing and enjoyable. Lucky watering globes can help give your plants water automatically without needing to do it yourself physically. You’ll have to monitor the amount of water in the globes to ensure your plants don’t dry out. Fortunately, many water globes retain liquids for 7 to 14 days, depending on the size you choose. Watering globes can also add a splash of color and liveliness to some plants, or you can purchase clear globes not to take away from the focal plant. Though lighter on maintenance than watering your plants daily, water globes still need to be cleaned regularly to ensure the opening is not impacted by soil. However, an agreement can be made with a landscaping maintenance company to inspect during their scheduled maintenance.
