Care of home green: watering

annaffiatoioThe summer is the best season to take care of your green space: it could be a balcony or a terrace full of flowers, or a real garden, green contained in them should be maintained to ensure healthy growth of species during periods of scorching heat.
Flowers and plants need care consisting of regular pruning and fertilizing, as well as attention given daily by watering.

Each species, whether of flowers or plants, has a different need for water, but during the summer it is advisable to water the same in a systematic manner and without puddles of water that could cause damage. I finally want to remind you that watering should be carried out preferably in the early hours of the day or, alternatively, in the late evening.

For those who love the green, watering can also be a moment of relaxation during which taking care of your plants; this can be done manually, with the aid of a watering can, indicated especially for terraces and balconies, or with irrigation systems when it comes to real gardens.
In essence, the watering can is useful for a timely watering of plants and flowers in vase or small flower beds.

We all know the classic characteristics of a watering can: it is a container of different sizes, often green in color, with a handle for the grip, an hole for water inlet and a nozzle for its release.
In recent years, however, the designers have made watering cans in shapes and colors strange and extravagant, rejuvenating its look and, therefore, putting on display an object that was previously relegated to a corner of our terrace or in cabinets for tools.
Let's see some examples.

Speaking of water, one can not deal with saving and ecology: a clever and original solution, was proposed by a Dutch designer Bas van der Veer who made a watering can whose water supply is directly inside a drainpipe for rainwater.
The object consists of two parts: a reservoir of various sizes, depending on whether you are installing it in a small or large garden, and a watering can which starts to accumulate rain water that, in the majority of cases, would be dispersed into drains. This solution is useful for both the recovery of the water itself and the savings in the bill of drinking water that normally should not be used for irrigation.
Raindrop is available in several colors and two sizes, from 3.5 to 5 liters.
