    How Does it Work?

    In nature, the greenest most bountiful areas have one thing in common - a continuous source of groundwater. Instead of relying on the irregularity of rain, moisture is wicked up from water tables below the ground, which consistently provides plants with the optimal hydration level that allows them to thrive.

    Advantages & Benefits

    Save Water

    Compared to traditional watering techniques, up to 80% less water is required. Evaporation is limited as water is held under the soil. Reservoirs can go a week or longer in between required fill ups.

    Longer Life

    Wood/Cedar is fully protected from soil/water by the waterproof liner, this eliminates chances of rot and greatly improves longevity and aesthetics of your planter.

    Less Soil

    Because water is always available, root systems are smaller so less soil depth is required than traditional raised beds: 8-12" of growing medium depth is suggested for veggies and most annuals.

    No Guess Work

    As long as there is water in the reservoir it wicks up naturally creating the perfect environment for your plants and veggies to grow.

    Bigger Yields

    Soil never dries out, so there is no water stress and plants always have the moisture levels they need to thrive.

    Water Stress Free

    Fill it and forget it, check water levels once a week, go away for long weekends without water worries and come home to a thriving bountiful garden.

    How to Install - Read all steps first!

    1. Prepare Location - Garden location should be level and free from obstruction.

    2. Build Garden Box/Raised Bed - for easy of use, build your garden to full foot interior dimensions, free from interior obstructions like corner bracing/framing. Put your structure on the outside!

    3. Install Foodsafe Liner - If you've followed steps 1 and 2, installing your liner should be simple! Your liner will be cut and folded to accommodate your selected interior garden footprint and wall height/soil depth. Simply unfold like origami and staple into place. Top trim may be required.

    4. Install Overflow - Predrilling the overflow hole before you install the liner is a good idea. It should be drilled 3" up from the bottom of the inside of your garden - right at level with the top of the SIP inserts.

    5. Click SIPs and Install into garden - fun stuff!
