If you have planted a lot of flowers this year, you know how much work it takes to take care of them. Fortunately, there are things you can do to make things easier for you. For example, you can purchase a foldable garden wagon and install an irrigation system to keep your flowers watered. Below is some more information about this so you can enjoy gardening again.
Purchase a Foldable Garden Wagon
You likely have to carry around equipment with you when working in your gardens. For example, you may have things like pruners, pesticides, trowels, spades, gloves, and more. It is likely hard for you to handle all these items, and you may have to make several trips back and forth to get what you need.
To take care of this problem, you should purchase a foldable garden wagon. These wagons are large enough to carry everything you need, and you simply roll the wagon around with you. This wagon has a handle that you pull it with and when you are finished, the wagon folds up for easy storage.
You can find these wagons in a variety of sizes from retailers like MACSPORTS-STORE.COM. Purchase one that can handle the amount of weight that you need. They are durable and strong and generally made of a thick plastic. The wheels are made so that you can easily pull the wagon across grass, pavement, and other surfaces. Many wagons have cup holders so you can carry a drink with you.
Install a Drip Irrigation System
It can take time to water flowers by hand, and when doing it like this, you may not get the water down to the roots of the plants. To help with this and to save yourself a lot of time, you should install a drip irrigation system. This type of system uses a hose that looks much like a garden hose. The hose has small holes running down the length of it. These holes are also called emitters. When the water is turned on, water slowly drips out of the emitters and onto the soil. The water sinks down to the roots of the plants where it is needed the most.
The hose is snaked around the flowers, and you can use more than one hose and attach them together. If you do not like the look of the hoses, you can cover them up with mulch.
The end of the hose is attached to an outdoor water faucet, and you simply turn the water on when you want to water your flowers. You can purchase a timer to attach to the system. You can set the timer to turn the water on at a certain time and then turn it off at a certain time. This will save you even more time.
These two tips should help you have beautiful and healthy flowers all season.
