Best items for a small urban garden, terrace, patio or balcony

Last year saw a rise in the number of people who were embracing gardening, whether it is a courtyard, terrace garden or a balcony– everyone tried to create a green retreat out of the space they have available. In fact, research suggests that UK gardens now average 12m x 12m for those under 45 years old and whilst 77% of adults have a garden, 20% of those are a terrace, patio or balcony.

We will show you some of the best solutions to enable you to grow thriving plants and vegetables whatever the size of your garden sanctuary.

Automatic Watering

An EasyDrip Micro Kit allows you to create a network of automatic watering to the pots and hanging baskets around your patio. Connect to a Sensor Controller on the tap and your pots will be watered automatically at sunrise and sunset according to your instructions – saving you water, time and effort!

Watering

NEW! Micro Reel with ‘Click & Go’ design

Simply ‘click’ the connector onto the tap and let the rotating drum unwind the hose as you walk. The integrated handle makes rewinding the hose quick and easy. Equipped with 10m of hose and a nozzle, it is perfect for watering small gardens and balconies. Offering the benefits of a larger reel, and is ideally sized to store away in cupboards, or on a shelf

Don’t have an outdoor tap?

No problem! Hozelock have a range of indoor tap connectors to allow you to connect your hose to your availaeble water source. You can connect and feed a short hose, like the Superhoze 7.5m and the Micro Reel, through the window to get water out to your garden space.
