In my experience, the only watering can brand to own is Haws. Their cans have been expertly crafted in England since 1886. I have one that’s more than twenty-five years old. It’s scratched and nicked up, but guess what? It still never leaks.
As I’ve aged, I’ve found it increasingly helpful that Haws watering cans are perfectly balanced—whether you carry them by the handle or by the crossbar. And having the two different hand grips makes for an ergonomic and less tiring carrying and watering position.
Haws offers dozens of models to choose from in a huge selection of styles, shapes, and sizes. I recommend the Long Reach model, for all the obvious reasons. In addition to helping you reach across with ease, it has a tall splash-guard, so water does not splash out while you’re walking.
Haws is simply the best, since 1886.
