Thank you very MULCH!

What is mulch, and how can it help your waterwise garden?

The longevity of anything good you do in the garden really depends on how well you grasp the benefits thereof.
So let’s dig into the benefits of mulch.

Mulch, a layer of organic material placed on top of exposed soil is great because it:
- Helps the soil hold moisture better
- Adds nutrients to the ground
- Improves drainage and aeration
- Prevents plants from drying out, meaning less watering needed
- Ensures optimal temperatures
- Protects plants and ground
- Reduces weeds

The following types of natural and biodegradable matter acts as excellent mulch for beds and pots:
- Leaves
- Wood chips
- Tree bark
- Straw
- Grass clippings
- Compost

If you are someone who enjoys watering your garden by hand, Wedgit is your waterwise garden companion. Our leak-free hose fittings, sprayers and nozzles, and kink-resistant hoses will make watering your garden an absolute pleasure.

Because gardening should be practical and fun.

Conserving water

#DidYouKnow South Africa is the 30th driest country in the world? As we desperately wait for the season’s rain, it is important to rethink how we use water in the garden and conserve where we can.


  1. Go for the broom instead.
  2. Harvest rainwater.
  3. If you have to water, water early in the mornings.
  4. Make sure your hose connectors are leak-free and your sprinkler systems are in perfect working condition.
  5. Plant water wise and indigenous plants.
  6. Mulch!
  7. Replace unnecessary or overly thirsty sections of turf grass with mulched beds.

Spring in South Africa!



It’s spring! This season is undoubtedly nature’s most beautiful masterpiece.

If you are eager to get planting, here are 3 beautifully colourful, hardy, and most importantly WATER WISE plants that could brighten up your garden all year round.

  1. Agapanthus – This plant’s blueish-purple or white flowers make quite the statement wherever you plant them. Expect to see those flowers bloom in summer!
  1. Strelitzia regnae (Bird of paradise) – The majestic orange and purple flowers look amazing against the green backdrop of a garden. It can flourish in all types of soil, sun or shade.
  1. Lavender – Why not plant some lavender? It is ideal for that sunny spot, smells amazing, and will attract loads of bees and butterflies to your garden. Remember to cut your lavender back twice per year (early spring and mid-summer).

When you need to water your plants, make sure your connection is leak-free! At Wedgit, we are your go-to partner for water-wise, kink-resistant garden hoses and leak-free garden hose connectors.

Because gardening should be practical and fun.
