If you have plants, chances are you need a watering can to help you care for them. Watering cans help you regulate the amount of water your plants get. From basic to ornate designs, all watering cans accomplish the same function – keeping your plants hydrated. It’s a good idea to choose between metal watering cans and plastic watering cans before moving on to style preference.
Plastic watering cans are light weight and durable when exposed to most outdoor weather elements, except wind. If you plan on keeping your sprinkling can indoors, then a plastic container will definitely do. But, many gardeners prefer keeping their watering cans outside next to a garden hose or water spout for convenience, in which case heavier metal watering cans are the better option.
Quite often, the metal, or galvanized watering cans, even become an accessory to the landscape. Therefore, you’ll find several decorative styles to complement the look of your garden. For more information on watering, check out our hose and sprinklers guide.
