Demonstrates how to use low-tech and repurposed materials, like buried clay pots, wicking systems and other porous containers, to deliver water directly to a plant's roots, discourage evaporation and reduce watering needs.
"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,"--Amazon.com
