Every so often I like to embark on a design exercise to stretch my creative muscles and explore innovative ways to design common products. This space-saving watering can is a good example. In order to reduce the amount of plastic used to produce this gardening tool, I asked myself “What are the essential parts of a watering can?”. I then got rid of anything that was redundant and designed a product that uses a simple metal clip and a sprinkler head with a ball valve. All you need to add is a short piece of garden hose and a bucket and you have a fully functioning watering can. The siphoning effect, achieved through the valve and the shape of the clip, makes so that the water can come out of the sprinkler head when the bucket is tilted.
