About this item
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 centers; are easy to set up and use; and work for garden beds, container gardens, and trees.
Drawing on traditional practices from around the world, author David A. Bainbridge introduces simple low-tech solutions to today's complex water supply challenges. With detailed photography, he shows how to install buried clay pots and pipes, wicking systems, and other porous containers that deliver water directly to the plant's roots, whether the gardener is tending a bed, container garden, or tree.
