With increased cost of water and the need to conserve water during long dry periods, water saving systems have become increasingly important for both environmental and economic reasons.
The concept of saving water from wet periods of the year to use in drier times is not new. It allows gardeners to grow crops in summer that they would other struggle to grow through lack of water.
In the garden water saving focuses around the most efficient way of watering plants as well as methods of preventing water evaporation and retaining moisture in the soil. A number of water saving systems for gardens are available, its all about choosing the best for your own garden and climate.
One of the big issues is how we apply water to plants, gone are the days of sprinklers that allow far to much evaporation, drip irrigation is a much more efficient method.
Many new and innovative methods of conserving water have been developed over recent years, from cheaper water tanks to soil modification systems a product is available to suit most needs.
Water Saving Systems and Products include :
- Soil water retention crystals, polymer crystals.
- Grey Water systems.
- Water Tubes.
- Irrigation equipment and sprinkler systems.
In most cases a combination of water saving systems will give the optimum result.
A rainwater tank combined with a grey water system and water retention products can be a very effective method of conserving water.
