Gardening with Less Water

Water shortages have become an everyday concern, but drought or a dry climate doesn't mean your garden has to suffer. With inexpensive materials such as terracotta pots, recycled bottles and nylon rope, you can create simple, effective and efficient watering systems that will dramatically reduce your water use and benefit your garden, showing how to reduce water use by up to 90%. These super-efficient systems deliver water directly to the roots, reduce weed growth, cut back on watering time and work for any size garden, and for container plants. Many of the techniques are not yet fully embraced but within the pages of Gardening with Less Water drought resilience is possible and its teachings will save precious water. Full-colour photographs and illustrated step by step instructions show how to assemble these low-tech systems and use them in the home landscape.
