Ok, I’ll admit, I love new garden tools, and I recently ordered a watering lance for certain areas on the farm that aren’t yet on irrigation. This one is a winner, and its fun and functional.
Garden Watering Challenges
We have a fairly diverse garden and planting area with all types of soil, density and coverage. With an array of pot sizes and planting strategies, watering with just the hose tip or a store bought nozzle can be challenging. With the water lance, reaching all the plants in a particular planting area is a breeze. The one I purchased is right around 3 feet long, so it extends my watering radius to get to those hard to reach planting areas.
You can also control the flow rate with the valve, so you don’t flush out those seedlings or small plants in pots or trays.
My only challenge with the one I purchased is that the valve is cheap plastic. I think I will head to Home Depot and upscale my valve setup and all should be good. So in a nutshell, any serious gardener would love a water lance as a garden gift, or self-gift. Here is a summary of the benefits:
- Extend your reach for wide beds or planting areas
- Control the flow with the valve
- Acts as an endless watering can
- Soothing and stress releasing while in use 😉
