This month marks the 17th annual World Water Day, when we’re encouraged to consider how much water we use and waste. Did you know in Britain alone over a third of water we use goes straight down the drain?
At GARDENA we believe that every drop counts. We’re passionate about not only developing sustainable watering solutions, but also educating gardeners on how they can make small changes to save water.
Of course, watering our gardens is important to ensure our plants stay healthy and blooming throughout the warmer months. But there are some very simple steps you can take to ensure you’re using just the right amount of water to keep your garden hydrated, without wasting any water.
Sounds complicated? It couldn’t be more simple. The GARDENA Micro-Drip-System works on the principle of little and often; drip feeding your plants to ensure the water penetrates the soil down to the roots, where your plants need it most.
With an extensive range of kits and accessories suitable for potted plants, veggie patches and flower beds, you can create a bespoke irrigation system that works for your garden.
Using patented ‘Quick and Easy’ connection technology the GARDENA Micro-Drip-System has been designed to be particularly user-friendly. Best of all, you can save up to 70% water consumption using the GARDENA Micro-Drip-System when compared to standard irrigation methods.
Looking for a spray nozzle that isn’t just a powerful cleaner, but gentle on plants too? Look no further. The GARDENA Comfort Cleaning Nozzle ecoPulse™ uses innovative oscillating ecoPulse™ technology that can save up to 40% water consumption when compared to a standard hard jet.
With four individual spray patters, simply switch between powerful cleaning and gentle irrigation to satisfy a range of gardening tasks.
Ergonomically designed for comfortable use, made in Germany with integrated frost protection and a five year warranty, the GARDENA ecoPulse nozzle has been designed to save water without compromising outstanding cleaning power.
GARDENA Water Controls
The optimum time to water the garden is early morning and late evening, avoiding the hottest parts of the day when water evaporates most. But we realise this isn’t always practical, so take the stress away with GARDENA Water Control.
From the Manual Tap Timer that will water your garden with just the turn of a dial, to the Flex, Select and Master Water Controls that allows you to programme up to six independent watering schedules, there’s a GARDENA Water Control for every garden.
Pair your GARDENA water control with a GARDENA Micro-Drip or sprinkler system for an automatic irrigation system that maximises water efficiency.
Want to go Smart? The GARDENA smart Sensor Control Set uses a smart soil moisture sensor and automatic irrigation control that feeds data to the GARDENA gateway. The soil moisture sensor will measure sunlight intensity, temperature and moisture levels of the soil, alerting the gateway to switch on the water control if levels drop too low. So you can rest assured your garden is getting just the right amount of water it needs wherever you are, whatever the weather.
