When it comes to maintaining a garden or beautifully-manicured lawn, time and resources are of the utmost importance. Sometimes, though, we are caught up in the hustle and bustle of everyday life and just don’t have the time to keep plants hydrated and happy. Enter: hose timers. Gardener’s Edge is glad to offer a variety of hose timers to help assist in scheduling the frequency of waterings your garden or yard may need. Shop below to get started!
Hose timers can operate like an egg timer (with a mechanical timer), or can be operated by battery power. Either way, you’ll have peace of mind and enjoy the convenience of being able to step away from the day-to-day watering of your garden to focus on the many other tasks in maintaining your beautiful, green space!
How do hose timers work? These easy-to-program models are hooked up to your hose and can be set for a specific increment of time, usually under three hours. There are a variety of schedules you can implement during this period of time, which can help if your green space can only handle so much water at a time, or if there is a particularly dry period of weather. Utilizing this type of watering system saves you time and ensures that your plants get watered properly. It also conserves water and allows for a more environmentally friendly method of garden irrigation!
