The hose and the garden shower

The next level after the watering can? The garden hose, of course. You can combine it with various attachments - with syringes, showers or pouring sticks.

Also misappropriated well - the lawn sprinkler

It is often misused. Sure, walking through the rain of the sprinkler can be done in summer.

Connected to a garden hose or a cistern with a pump, the lawn sprinkler irrigates the lawn gently from above. You can also set whether it should alternately turn on its side when blasting the lawn.

Precision tool - drip irrigation

If you want to make sure that each plant gets enough water, but you don't want to feed each one with the watering can, then you are ready for drip irrigation.

It is suitable for all areas outside the lawn and irrigates specifically near the roots and therefore sparingly. Because the water arrives exactly where it should.

The system starts with a basic device that reduces the pressure and filters the water at the same time.

Connected to this is a pipe or distribution pipe that transports the water to the desired locations. The system can be used in many ways, e.g. B. for balcony boxes, terrace plants, hedges and shrubs or for flower and vegetable beds and for greenhouses.

The drip irrigation is available in different versions.
