Watering with Gilmour Around My Farm

It takes a lot of close monitoring to stay on top of our watering tasks this time of year. We've had sporadic showers and thunderstorms, but sometimes they're just not enough to keep all the gardens well irrigated.

Because of this typical August weather, the hoses and sprinklers have been very busy. One of my favorite sources is Gilmour, a Madison, Wisconsin-based company that’s been manufacturing hoses and other watering solutions for more than 65-years. I use several of their products at my Bedford, New York farm, at Lily Pond in East Hampton, and at Skylands, my home in Maine. With so many trees, shrubs and plants to maintain, it’s important we use only the best quality outdoor tools.
