Never Water Your Garden Again


I'm terrible about remembering to water plants and therefore have never had a successful garden. My brother, however is an amazing gardener and took pity on me and my crispy dead plants. He created a garden for me using drip irrigation, a programmable watering timer, and lots of mulch...which means it pretty much takes care of itself. I am happy to report that it is flourishing and all I really have to do

    This is awesome. I have a plant-killing sister who would love this, too!

    Mine is made with 3 50 ft soaker hoses on a 4 way timer. The fourth connection is free in case I need to hook a water hose for something. All I have to do is switch the levers each day so that the next one will water in the night. That way, each section gets 30 minutes of slow watering in the wee hours of the morning. So much easier than watering by hand. Kudos to your brother.
