Wander down the ‘gardening’ aisles of any hardware store to the ‘watering’ section and you’re bound to find GARDENA products. In fact you’d be hard pressed not to find Gardena in a typical Kiwi backyard.

Since 1968, New Zealanders have trusted Gardena to provide innovative, high-quality products. After nearly 50 years and just in time for summer Gardena is releasing its remodelled Original GARDENA System (OGS) which has always stood for easy watering in the garden. The latest range has a sophisticated design and fresh features, making it the perfect choice for new or seasoned gardeners.

“Great care was taken when redesigning the system loved by generations of Kiwi gardeners,” said Nick Bright, General Manager, Gardena NZ. “It was an exciting challenge and one we did not take lightly. We believe that customers will enjoy it.”

The focus of the innovations was the application oriented Classic Segment of GARDENA Cleaning Nozzle, Watering Sprayer and Spray Lances but also the Original System Parts – GARDENA Tap Connector, GARDENA Hose Connection, Water Stop and GARDENA Hose Repairer.

As European leader in mobile garden irrigation, New Zealand follows that lead of making the Original GARDENA System even more durable and comfortable to use.

For example, the improved ergonomics, weather and frost protection with up to a 30 per cent increase in hose holding force with the new colour coding that lets you know exactly which parts belong together.


The Right System Tool for each Application

There is the right tool for every application in the garden. Distinctive innovations are: 1. The durable, frost proof quality of the tool, 2. An ergonomic trigger for continuous water flow and 3. Comfortable, single-handed operation when regulating water flow.

Another useful innovation is that the Classic Multi-Sprayer can also create additional spray patterns.

The choice between soft spray, 9 point hard jet or bubble-jet spray makes the sprayer versatile. Soft components protect the spray head from any damages if it falls and cleaning is extremely easy.

The GARDENA Classic Spray Lance ensures sufficient reach with its length of 75 centimetres for watering in large beds and in high or otherwise hard to reach places.
