An environmentally friendly way to water large trees and shrubs by delivering water directly to their roots underground.

The Hoselink Root Waterer & Soil Breaker attaches to your hose via the free Hoselink connector.  As you start to depress the pole into the ground, press the trigger to release water.  This will help the pole easily go into the ground to water roots.

By watering the roots of plants, you'll avoid wasting water through evaporation and ensure water is delivered directly to the roots.

You can also use this method to break up hard soil, making the removal of weeds or plants much easier.

Special mention: We'd like to thank James Watkins for inventing this product.

This is the best for hot weather watering as it gets water straight to the roots of the plants - I already notice a difference with the vitality of my hydrangeas. Thanks!!

I have been looking for something like this for years! I live in an area with poor soil quality and the water never quite gets to the roots with a traditional trigger sprayer. This enables you to get to the roots of the plants but is also very sturdy and has no leaks. It's that good that I have purchased a second for my place and also one for my father. Highly recommend!

I purchased the Root Waterer and Soil Breaker for my Husband. Mainly to save his back from more pain. Well my Husband is over the moon with this. He calls it his miracle machine. Other comments are FABULOUS/SO EASY TO USE/HAS NEVER EVER SEEN ANY GARDEN IMPLEMENT LIKE THIS IN HIS WHOLE 70 + YEARS. He even takes friends into the garden to show off his new toy. Thankyou Hoselink for developing a garden implement that disabled people can use without any worry of injury

Great Idea

I use this product for Garden Beds and Large Pot Plants. It gets the water down at the roots instead of sitting on top of the soil and soaking down. Definitely saves on water through lower evaporation. I was concerned about the strength of the product. Once opened I knew this was not going to be a problem - sturdy and well made. One word of caution - make sure the holes at the bottom are at least 1" down before turning water on to avoid soil being sprayed everywhere in a muddy mess. I wasn't looking at what I was doing - I'll blame the dog for distracting me.

Root waterer and soil breaker review

I don't know about being a 'soil breaker' but as a root waterer, it is fantastic, so good I bought a second one for my daughter for Xmas. In my clay-plagued area, my plants need all the help they can get in dry times and I need this watering tool to force the water into the roots and pass the hydrophobic barrier that dry weather creates. The waterer leaves holes so you can use your hose the next few times until the holes need re-establishment. It is so good, one would need to be careful to not water too close to the actual root ball. Thanks all and I don't know why there isn't more of this kind of product around in these hot dry times. Darren
