Advantages and disadvantages of watering with a hose

Spring is the time when our garden begins to wake up from its winter slumber and the most important thing is the humidity they need to start growing again. And it is that the water quenches the thirst of the grass and provides almost all the essential nutrients that are dissolved in it.

In the market there are different types of risk for our gardens , although basically three are used: hose irrigation, the technical sprinkler irrigation system and drip irrigation. Without a doubt, the first of these is one of the most used in Spain. For this reason, the other day we wanted to give you a few tips to hose down and today we are going to talk to you about its advantages and disadvantages.

Although there are many detractors of the use of the hose , the truth is that this tool gives you the opportunity to know how much water they are contributing to the plant and to water it in a very short time with a large amount of water. In fact, it is one of the most used forms for gardens with fruit trees or plants that need a lot of water.

On the other hand, with the hose you can cover a large area, although it takes time to get to water everything. In addition, it allows you to water the most hidden corners , providing the plants with all the water they need.


However, hose down also has some drawbacks . For example, it takes time, since you will have to go from one place to another pulling the hose to water everything. In addition, it means having the hose in your hand for many hours, which finally ends up tiring.

On the other hand, it does not achieve good uniformity, since more water falls in some places than in others. As if that were not enough, unnecessary and uncontrolled waste of water is generated , since with hose irrigation only 40% of each liter of water used is used and the rest is lost.
