In searching for the best garden watering system, you want something that really works for your unique situation. In my own searching for the best watering system I've tried many different watering methods. I've even done nice drip lines only to divert back to using a standard garden hose at times.
In Part 1 of this series we talked about several smart garden watering systems that are really helpful for the home gardener. But now there's one more I want to tell you about. (In case you missed it you can go back and read Part 1 here.)

Garden In Minutes sent me a gardening grid in exchange for an honest review and this is my genuine opinion. I do not endorse companies I wouldn't buy from myself. Thanks for your support!
Fall of 2022 I was introduced to a new watering system. This one has so many benefits to the home gardener and I'm so happy with the one I have!
This amazing system not only gets the water right where the plants need it, but it also give you an automatic grid for square foot gardening! This is super helpful! If you aren't familiar with square foot gardening, here is a quick run down.
Square foot gardening has so many advantages to the home gardener. If you just have one small-ish garden and want to maximize your families growing space, square foot gardening will do that for you.
What most Americans think of as traditional row gardening in reality wastes a lot of space. Long (or even short) rows of veggies with space in between each row takes up more space per/veggie versus blocks of veggies spaced closer together.
Mel Bartholomew's book, "All New Square Foot Gardening" gives details of his specific method. I haven't read the whole book, but we have it and I love his plant spacing guides for sure. You can get the book on Amazon.
Whether you follow Mel's method to a tee, or just use the square foot spacing as a guideline, I highly recommend some form of this intensive gardening method.
Garden In Minutes developed one of the best watering system I have ever used! In just minutes after arriving at your doorstep you can have it assembled and be 100% ready for quick efficient watering for a more evenly-watered garden.
Their grid watering system leaves you square foot grids to plant in and puts the water right where your plants will need it. The grid rests on the soil and the plants will grow up over and around the grid to the point at where you can't see all of the grid anymore, but it's there and it's getting water right to where your plants need it--the roots.
Once your package lands on your doorstep you are going to open the box and lay out all the pieces. The big pieces are labeled so you know exactly which piece goes.
Lay them out and make sure it all looks right and then begin fitting them together. To do this all you need to do is push. It takes a little bit of strength (just like fitting your drip system parts together). But it's not at all complicated.
A few benefits include:
Personally I prefer to have multiple garden watering systems depending on what I'm watering. If I have a pot on the porch that's only several gallons, then I'm probably going to water with a garden hose or an oya. But for most garden beds the gardening grid system that we talked about here would be ideal in my opinion.
If you are concerned about the price, one thing you can consider is to buy for one garden bed at a time. It would probably only take a few seasons to get your whole garden covered. Or just bite the bullet and get your whole garden up and running right now. Either way, be sure to take advantage of their $10 off your first order right here.
The pictures of this gardening grid system speak for themselves. They are so beautiful and add an organized finishing touch to your garden.🌱✨
If you've been struggling to find the best watering system for your gardens, I recommend that you give this a shot. I hope you can find the best garden watering system for your homestead!
