Gardening of any kind is a great way to get some light exercise out in the fresh air. It's also a brilliant opportunity to try out some new and exciting creative ideas to harness your love of plants and vegetation.
A balcony space, a garden or even a window box is ideal for planting, cultivating and looking after your plants. Even keeping the lawn healthy and in the best of shape can be helped out with a good use of designer equipment.
Key to much of gardening activity is the need to keep every growing plant sufficiently watered. From seed to tree, every kind of plant has to have the right amount of water regardless of what the weather is doing. Water too much and the plant might get submerged, too little and it'll certainly be thirsty!
The above Watering Can by AYTM offers a stylish answer to the question of how to water plants comfortably and stylishly. Available in colours of black, silver and gold, the beautifully shaped can is great for plants outdoors, in the conservatory or in the home itself. Sure to take centre stage when not in use, the superbly well designed can allows a steady flow of water to come out of the spout. Made from rust-proof metal, the can is a great addition to the garden equipment.
