Are you facing drought or water shortages? Gardening with Less Water offers simple, inexpensive, low-tech techniques for watering your garden much more efficiently -- using up to 90% less water for the same results. With illustrated step-by-step instructions, David Bainbridge shows you how to install buried clay pots and pipes, wicking systems, and other porous containers that deliver water directly to a plant's roots with no or minimal evaporation. These systems are available at hardware stores and garden centres; are easy to set up and use; and work for garden beds, container gardens, and trees.
Gardening with Less Water introduces gardeners to simple low-cost, low-tech techniques-using terra-cotta pipes, wicks, and recycled plastic bottles-that are up to 10 times more efficient than traditional watering methods.
