Stuff We Love
Well-designed watering tools, a portable inflator, and a handy tool for preventing drain clogs.
I’m not a huge fan of yard work, especially watering grass and gardens. So I pay attention to products that make it easier—and Gilmour has come out with two products that do just that.
The Circular Sprinkler with Spike Base (No. 3203) has all the features you want and need, and its design makes it intuitive to operate. You simply slide collars to adjust the spray pattern or pull up the top for full-circle watering. It has a simple lever for adjusting spray distance and an on/off switch to minimize back-and-forth trips to the spigot. Two sprinklers can be linked in series.
The Thumb Control Watering Nozzle with Swivel Connect (No. 4312) feels solid and has an easy-turn outer ring for adjusting the spray pattern. The volume is controlled by a sliding thumb lever—no squeezing or twisting to adjust the water flow.
The hose connection on both the sprinkler and the nozzle rotate independently, minimizing kinks and twists. They cost about $15 each. Learn more at gilmour.com.
