A watering wand attaches to your hose and allows you to water directly on the root of your plant, avoiding unnecessary water waste that comes from evaporation, runoff or wind.
Hose End Timer
A hose end timer does just what you’d think it does — turns your hose off after a designated amount of time. Not only is this better for your plants as it prevents overwatering, but it saves water and money, too.
There are all types of rain gauges, but they all have one purpose: to let you know exactly how much rain there was. For the gardener, this information is valuable in ensuring you don’t overwater your plants.
Like the watering wand, a soaker hose gets the water right to where it matters: the roots. They are also a convenient way to maintain your garden beds. Be sure not to turn the water on too high — you only need a quarter turn of the faucet for it to do its job.
