Most gardeners know that if you water the beds directly from the hose, then the water jet erodes the ground, exposes the roots of the plants, and the resulting streams form depressions. All this negatively affects horticultural crops. To avoid this, sprinklers or sprinklers are used. Of course, you can buy it, but if suddenly for a number of reasons it didn’t work out, then it doesn’t matter. You can easily make a spray bottle yourself from a PET bottle.
It will take
- Plastic bottle 0.5-1 liter.
- A piece of hose 10-20 cm.
- Watering hose adapter.
How to make a simple sprinkler out of a PET bottle
We take the bottle and unscrew the cap. We insert a piece of hose into the neck. If the connection is not tight, we wind it with electrical tape. To prevent the bottle from flying off during operation, we hammer a carnation into the neck.
Next, put on the adapter.
At the base of the bottle we make numerous holes with a nail or awl.
Our sprinkler is ready to go. When necessary, we put it on a watering hose and use it.
The spray is very good, you and the plants will definitely like it.
