Cut the 2 liter bottle in half and cut out a 3in. by 3in. square of tin foil.

Step 3: Assemble All Parts

Place the right side of the tee on the pole and place the tap on the other side of the pole. Take the square piece of tin foil and cover the middle hole so it doesn't leak. Then take the top half of the bottle and place it on the left side of the tee and hot glue those two pieces together.

Mark 4 holes that are half an inch away from each other, and then you a drill to create holes through the marks.

Shove it into the ground all the way until it reaches the tin foil. Make sure it is places on the outskirts of the branches. Use any bucket you may have and import through the top so the water goes straight to the roots.
