Self-Watering Wicking Bed

It is a self watering garden bed. At the base of the bed is a “wicking bed.” A wicking bed is a reservoir of water that is available to plant roots, but doesn’t drown them. The reservoir only needs to be topped up every few weeks, and the closed system means that water is never wasted.

Overflow Hole

The overflow hole ensures that your vegetable garden is never over watered. If the wicking well is full, excess water is stored in the overflow hole. 

Mist Sprays

Mist sprays, which attach to the canopy cover, allow you to water your garden from above. The mist sprays can be linked to a self-timed garden hose to automate your spraying.
