he Best Way to Flood Irrigate: How to use our DEEP DRIP® Watering Stakes with Flood Irrigation or your Garden Hose

Using a Garden Hose with DEEP DRIP®

One of the most common questions our customers ask is, “Can I use my DEEP DRIP® Watering Stakes with a Garden Hose?” The answer is a resounding yes! But, we do have a specific way we recommend you use to pair our stakes with a hose and that is flood irrigation.

To use any of our DEEP DRIP® Watering Stakes with a garden hose, you will need to create a flood irrigation system by digging a tree well and or berm around your plant, rather than directly putting the hose into the stake. Directly inserting a hose into  a stake will force water to enter too quickly; flooding the root zone and possibly damaging your plant.

To get started; dig a tree well and/or berm around your plant, the larger the plant, the larger tree well/berm you will need to dig or build. Follow our stake placement guide to use the correct number and pattern of stakes when you are placing and installing them. Bury stakes evenly around the base of the plant, leaving the stake’s cap on and top hole just above ground. As the well fills, water will flow into the top hole of your stakes deep watering your plant’s roots. The harder the ground; the longer and slower you will likely need to soak your tree well/berm. Be sure to speak with your local nursery professional for specific recommendations on  watering levels, times, and refill rates specific to your plant’s needs.

Using DEEP DRIP® Watering Stakes doesn’t mean you have to have an automatic drip line watering system, a flood irrigation system can be a great option! If you have any questions about installation, be sure to check out our instruction page. We hope that you try out the “Better Way to Water”, our DEEP DRIP® Watering Stakes.
