The best way to water your garden is to set up a drip irrigation system with an automatic timer. But what if you do not have that option?. If so, a great option is to bury a milk jug with holes drilled in it next to your plants. To water all you have to do is stick the hose in the top of the jug and fill up the milk jug and you are done! It also makes it easy to fertilize, add a scoup of fertilizer into the jug and add water and you are done!

DIY Drip Irrigation

Gone are the days of lugging around watering cans and dragging hoses. Now watering my entire garden happens without any effort on my part


The whole system only took about 30 minutes to install. I had never dealt with any plumbing at all before and it was extremely easy. The snap nozzle at the end of the hose is great and quick if I need to use the other end of the hose for something else. It's great!
