Are you facing drought or water shortages? Do you simply want to conserve water and/or lower your water bill during garden season?
Gardening with Less Water offers simple, inexpensive, low-tech techniques for watering your garden much more efficiently — using up to 90 percent less water for the same results.
David A. Bainbridge adapts traditional, low-cost techniques that conserve water while keeping plants well hydrated. Up to ten times more efficient than other watering methods, this system of terra-cotta pots, pipes, wicks, and recycled plastic bottles can be easily installed in any size garden, including container gardens.
Full-color photographs and illustrated step-by-step instructions show how to assemble these low-tech systems and use them in the home landscape to deliver water directly to plant roots.
