This is such a great idea. I am on my 2nd one but that's only because I lent my 1st one to my brother & he had trouble giving it up! Not only does this get water directly to the roots, but it also leaves the hole there so that next time it rains, the rain water also goes directly to the roots, as does oxygen. Extremely efficient! It's especially great in hard soil areas or anywhere else water doesn't quickly soak in! Plants love it & so will you!

I've tried a couple of different brands and this is easily the best one. And where I live--in the high desert of New Mexico--this is an essential gardening tool. This one is sturdy and easy to use. Other brands I've used either have plastic parts that give out eventually, or squirt the water to the sides of the spike, making it MUCH harder to push through the soil deep enough. This one squirts the water straight ahead so it is easy to push the spike to its maximum depth of almost 3 feet. It could be sturdier, but because you don't have to push as hard on it, that isn't such a drawback. But be aware that if you do push real hard on it, it will bend.

Product came highly recommended from a friend it does exactly what I wanted. There have been some problems with the tipe getting clogged going in but a simple pulse off and on and the plug shot out. Found that this is also good for clearing my drive way as it produces a pretty strong stream.

Unfortunately I thought the product was overpriced for the quality received. I found one for the same price at a hardware store that had a gage built in that measured the water going through. This would let you know when enough water had passed through for a small, medium or large shrub, and the same for different size trees. This one is simple bare bones.
