Hose Faucet Watering

What is Hose Faucet Watering? Many people get this term confused with a number of different things. The first thought that comes to people's mind when they hear someone recommend Hose Faucet Watering is using the kitchen sink as a shower or a slip and slide. But in the landscaping world, Hose Faucet Watering is much more than that.

An Alternative

Hose Faucet Watering is primarily an alternative to an underground sprinkler system. A lot of people can not afford to have underground sprinklers installed but still have a lawn that requires frequent watering. The answer: Water your lawn using your outdoor hose.
It's simple! You already have the hose and you're paying for water every month, why not just water the lawn using the hose?
Using the hose is inconvenient. I don't want to have to stand outside and hold the hose for 15 minutes. I'm a busy person!
There's a solution to that too! Why not get yourself a lawn sprinkler?? Yeah! Lawn sprinklers are these handy little devices that hook on to the end of your garden hose and spray the water out in all directions all on its own! You just have to turn on the water, set the lawn sprinkler down, and walk away!
"But what if I forget to turn the hose off? Like I said, I'm pretty busy and I'm also forgetful from time to time. I don't want to have to deal with a flooded yard."
No problem! What you need is a Hose Faucet Water Timer! Designed specifically for hose faucet watering, they will shut off your hose for you! They hook right up to your hose and they are really easy to configure. The most popular hose faucet water timer is the Orbit 91213 is a single dial timer which makes everything simple and fast to setup!
"Okay, but I have a pretty big lawn which means I'll have to remember to reposition the lawn sprinkler every ten minutes or so. I don't know if I can handle that. Like I said, I'm pretty forgetful."
Not to worry! There are traveling sprinklers available that move all on their own! Or, you can get an Orbit H2O Gear Driven Sprinkler that sits on a spike and sprays up to 65 feet! You might also find that an Orbit Oscillating Sprinkler will cover the length of your yard. Some Oscillating Lawn Sprinklers cover up to 3600 square feet!
So all you really need is hose faucet watering timer, like the Orbit 91213, and a lawn sprinkler; and with so many to choose from, you are bound to find one that works perfectly for your lawn!
Wow! Sounds terrific! I will start using a hose faucet watering system right away! Thanks Sprinkler Juice!
