Three Ways an Eco Garden Helps Conserve Water in Your Garden

According to the EPA, the average American family uses over 300 gallons of water per day. 30% of that water is used outdoors, with even higher estimates in the western part of the country. Water is becoming even more of a precious commodity, with some areas of the US needing to import some of their drinking water.

If you’re a gardener, you know how important proper watering is for garden plant life. Growing vegetables take a lot of water. At Eco Garden Systems, we came up with a way to garden more sustainably by using less water to grow vegetables in our raised garden bed. Here’s how we do it:

  1. The Water Reservoir, which holds ~74 gallons of water, creates a consistent supply of hydration for thirsty garden plants. Just fill it up and the garden does the rest. You can even use rainwater to fill it; there’s an overflow valve to funnel off excess water and protect plants from drowning. Learn about the best water for quenching the garden here. Want to be even more sustainable? Use a bucket to catch the overflowing rain water and use it in other pots and containers.
  2. The Air Gap between the water reservoir and the soil platform creates an oxygen rich, moist rich layer of air for roots to grow stronger, leading twice the speed-to-maturity of traditional gardens and up to 50% greater production per plant.
  3. Each Original Garden has an Integrated Watering System with hoses and 10 sprinkler heads. Attach the garden to a water source and a timer to water only when you need it, or when you are out of town.

The result is that each Eco Garden requires 65% less water usage than a traditional garden! That is a huge savings and will help your family conserve one of our most precious and under-appreciated resources – Water. For more sustainability tips, check out this article.
