Gardeners have been budding all across the U.S. within the last year! Industry groups reported more than 18,000,000 new gardeners in 2020 alone. Having the right tools can be a significant key to gardening success, whether you are new or experienced. Here are four tools that will make watering easier and more effective.

Rain Wand

A Rain Wand is a perfect tool for gardeners to water both their young and established plants. A good quality Rain Wand will have a shower head that directs water to the plant's base. A rain-like shower thoroughly waters the soil at the root zone, promoting plant health and vigorous growth. Wands 30 inches in length with a thumb control are easier on your hand when watering; 16-inch wands are great for containers. The Dramm OneTouch Rain Wand™ is an excellent choice as it has an incredibly soft shower pattern and the OneTouch valve feature allows you to control the water flow.

Versatile Spray Gun

A multi-purpose hose-end spray gun is designed to wash the car, clean the siding, spray the window screens, and even wash the dog. The lever valve style is the best-selling, but the ease of use of the thumb control valve is becoming more popular. The Dramm 9-Pattern Revolver™ or the Dramm 9-Pattern Revolution™ with thumb control will aid any outdoor function involving water.

Quality Lawn Sprinkler

Don't forget the lawn! Everyone needs a good sprinkler, but the space that needs water is rarely a circle when watering lawns. One of the most helpful lawn sprinklers is a turret sprinkler that offers multiple patterns that fit the lawn's shape. Putting water only where you need it conserves water and maximizes the water you apply. The Dramm ColorStorm™ Turret Sprinkler is a perfect choice because it's heavy-duty and will last. Furthermore, The Dramm Corporation offers tutorial videos online to help with set-up if needed.

Reliable Hose

A reliable hose is a must to deliver water where you need it. Garden hoses can be made of many materials, but the best ones are rubber. Hoses need to endure a lot of wear. Rubber lasts a long time in all conditions. Rubber hoses do not dry out and crack over time from the effects of sun, heat, and cold. You can expect to get years of use from a rubber hose. The highly rated Dramm ColorStorm™ Rubber Hose is one of the best on the market.

Buying quality items in the hose nozzle, rain wand, sprinkler, and hose categories will ease your lawn and gardening tasks.
