Garden watering can

Engage in the garden

The hobby of gardening is currently one of the most widespread and appreciated hobbies on the Italian «social» panorama and in general in the world; It is true that all developed companies are becoming more and more technological and more computerized, seeing the usual hobbies and pastimes transformed into moments spent especially with a PC, a tablet, a super smartphone or any other technological gadget in your hands. Well, despite this undoubted world trend, gardening still resists, and everything is due to the extraordinary relationship that exists between man and nature: it is our creator, and unconsciously when we find ourselves in a natural place and ‘open air among the vegetation we immediately feel a different air that pervades the lungs and the mind above all, helping us to relax the body and soul, freeing us from that stress that too often pervades us every day. Engaging in your own home garden also adds to the extraordinary effect of nature the benefits of a healthy physical activity, those of personal satisfaction in controlling the growth and health of the plants we love and all other objects, which are also the result of passions. , with which we can decorate our garden.

The right equipment


Gardening, like any other activity, needs to be done with the right equipment, otherwise it becomes uncomfortable (or even impossible) at times and above all it loses much of its charm; just imagine that a morning of maintenance in the garden, if you do not have even a small manual lawnmower available, becomes a grind that instead of taking away the stress maybe it will add some, since we will be thinking about the fact that we may have already bought it and therefore that work would have lasted even a fifth of the time it took us. But what is the right gardening equipment? Well, in this regard, the base is solid and well known: in fact, it is the tools that have always been used by our ancestors who worked the land, or spade, shovel, hoe, wheelbarrow, rake, watering can and little else. Today many of these tools are flanked by technological and motorized objects that allow higher work rates with less effort, but you are not mistaken if you think that the real basis are the aforementioned tools, always excellent especially for maintaining a garden and feeling that satisfaction mixed with fatigue that only manual labor can give. That said, for those who have little time or at least little availability at a certain level of activity, the «motorized» are excellent alternatives. always excellent especially for maintaining a garden and feeling that satisfaction mixed with fatigue that only manual work can give.

Watering can

An indispensable tool at all levels of gardening is the watering can: it is the means by which we provide water, that is to supply water to all the plants and soil in our garden or in any case to all the plants we have at home. Just as water is a fundamental and essential element for us humans, it is also a fundamental element for plants and the soil, also because it is the only means that can bring nutrients to them. The watering can rather than indicating an object indicates an operation, because then you can have the half-liter watering can with which anyone can water the plant in the jar on the balcony or window, or you can have the super watering can of hundreds of liters to which an automatic pumping system can be connected in order to reach large sprays and also cover large distances within the garden, making it even automatic switching on and off once the memory is set. The truth lies in the middle, as the Latins said, so what is most common is a watering can with a capacity between five and ten liters (so as not to be too heavy in transport).

Garden watering can: Garden models and costs

As already mentioned at the end of the previous paragraph, the most used model of watering can is the one with an average capacity of five liters, usually built in plastic material, with a long inclined «spout» so as to be able to easily reach each plant and dose for water well. Clearly, the price of these items is incredibly low in some cases (often hovering well below the ten euro mark), due to the widespread use of imported items that defeat any competition and lend a hand to all buyers. The material that we have mentioned as the most common is plastic, and it is actually so because only plastic materials can guarantee the mix of three main qualities: lightness, resistance and economy. Obviously there are more resistant materials but then they are heavier, and if they were resistant and light together they would cost much more, from which it can be deduced that the plastic material in this application is almost unbeatable. In the field instead of the smaller watering cans, often also used as decoration and as a good luck gadget for the garden, wood (often decorated and carved) and some metal materials such as copper or others that can be worked for unusual and beautiful shapes can also appear. to be seen.
