Rental Garden – Water Usage

Rental Garden — Water Useage

Water for the Inglewood Community Garden is supplied by the City of Calgary Parks Department

“Thank you” — City of Calgary Parks Department!

1.BE CAREFUL! — Due to the size of the (underground) supply piping volumetric water flow in the Garden is very high!
2. Always hold and point the hose nozzle away from yourself and others when turning the water on.
3. Once you are finished watering please drain water from the hose, roll the hose up, close the nozzle, and store it.

Hose Etiquette
 When you have finished using a hose…
 Drain water from it…
 Return it to the water stand and turn the nozzle OFF, unless…
… another gardener asks to use the hose after you are finished, in which case it will be up to them to replace the hose.

TIP – to make it easier to roll up a hose:
 Leave the nozzle OPEN a trickle
 Turn off the water at the tap
 Now, as you pull the hose toward the water stand, it will become emptier, more flexible and easier to handle
REMEMBER to turn the nozzle OFF once you have replaced the hose

Water Stands
Water stands in the Rental Garden may appear more “complicated” than they actually are!
