Dramm Watering Tools!
The cold and wet spring is just a memory and the sun and heat has returned. We can't rely on Mother Nature to keep our gardens and lawns watered. Fortunately we have our friends at Dramm to get the job done. William and Judy showed us a couple of the many Dramm tools and gave us some tips for watering as well. First William talked about lawns. It is recommended that you water your lawn for a total of 1 inch a week.
We suggest that you divide that into two separate waterings. Another tip is to make sure that the water goes on your yard and not in the street or on the pavement. Dramm makes a great sprinkler that has many different patterns that helps the water stay where you want it.

Then we moved to container gardens. Judy told us how important it is to water your plants thoroughly, until the water comes out of the bottom of the pot, so that they have plenty of water for growing. Pots and containers tend to dry out pretty fast, so make sure that you check them often. Dramm has an adjustable nozzle that can either soak the plants or mist them, with lots of options in-between.
Another tough area to water is your hanging baskets. These containers can dry out even FASTER than your normal deck containers but can be tough to reach. There we used a Dramm watering wand. Just the right length for the job. The same rule applies here, water throughly until they are soaked.
