Here’s a solution to the ongoing problem of having to drag hoses and sprinklers around your garden beds: Aquacorner, an instant tap for your raised garden bed. Pair it with a soaker hose that stays put as your harvest grows.
Above: Use the Aquacorner to retrofit an existing bed or when building a new bed. It’s designed to fit standard milled lumber and is secured in place with screws. Attach your garden hose to the brass fitting at the bottom and use the spigot at the top to control water flow to your own soaker hose, drip system, or sprinkler.
Above: The Aquacorner features internal plumbing with brass fittings, a spigot to control water flow, and a faucet adapter with quick-connect water stop.
Above: The Aquacorner Soaker System includes one aluminum Aquacorner, a faucet adapter with quick-connect water stop, and 25-feet of soaker hose.
Above: The Aquacorner is available in four heights: 6-, 8-, 10- and 12-inches tall to match your raised bed; $38.95 to $41.95 each depending on size from Gardener’s Supply Company.
