The love for gardening is growing all over the world and Italy is one of the leading countries in this trend, together with the USA, England, France and Germany. The dream of a beautiful green lawn with many flower beds, and maybe a small garden with tasty first fruits to be enjoyed at km. zero, infects the new generations – the so-called “millennials”, that is people born after 1980 – but the needs have changed compared to the old image of the gardener with apron, rake and watering can. Today gardening enthusiasts want to get the best results, but they don’t have much time to devote to their green passion. They find out about specialized websites and social networks, are familiar with technology and look for practical, comfortable and versatile solutions. Modern gardens have also changed: the most common type is a medium-sized green space (up to 700 m2).
Claber, an Italian company famous in the world of gardening enthusiasts, has thought of a tailor-made solution to manage the irrigation of today’s gardens: Hydro-4. It is a compact and perfectly watertight manhole (IP68 certified), which can be used both underground and simply placed on the ground or on a pavement, inside which there is an electronic programmer and 4 solenoid valves. Hydro-4 is battery operated, so there is no need to connect it to the mains, and it can control up to 4 independent irrigation lines to meet all watering needs. It is in fact compatible with various Claber irrigation systems, which can be purchased separately according to your needs: 1/2 “manifold hose, Block System fittings and Colibrì micro-sprinklers, or 20 mm manifold hose, compression and pop-up fittings at medium throw. . It can also be connected to a drip irrigation line, perfect for flower beds or garden beds, or to a drip hose, very practical for watering hedges. Also connecting the controller to a water supply or a simple tap, it’s quick and easy: an ideal system for do-it-yourselfers.
As we have seen, Hydro-4 allows you to create, even alone, any irrigation system in a medium or medium-large size garden. You can use the Colibrì System low-consumption sprinklers, the Claber Pop Up sprinklers or the Claber turbine sprinklers, to have all the advantages of underground irrigation: uniform watering, water saving, aesthetics and enhancement of the home. If you do not want to commit to the construction of an underground system, or in a second home, you can opt for above-ground systems, with oscillating sprinklers that water the lawn and dripping pipes that distribute the water to the flower beds and hedges. Thanks to the possibility of managing up to 4 independent lines, Hydro-4 can be used to water both the garden and the vegetable garden, creating one or more drip irrigation and micro-irrigation circuits for the latter. In short, Hydro-4 opens up a real world of possibilities for domestic irrigation, also thanks to the possibility of contacting the Claber Design Service to have a personalized and free project of the systems to be built, based on the size and characteristics of the own green space.
