As such a crucial part of our daily routine, using water in a purposeful and responsible manner allows every person, animal, and plant to have more access to this valuable resource. This is especially important in dryer USDA hardiness zones, as water is even more sparse in these areas. In this blog post, we’ll cover various different products that you can use in your vertical vegetable garden to help conserve water.

Both affordable and easy-to-use, this sustainable product saves time by calculating the exact amount of water used in your vertical vegetable garden. Not only can you see the amount of water from your most recent session, but you can also track the overall usage, too. With this information, it’s easy to avoid overwatering, saving you time and money.

Always Water at the Right Time With a Soil Moisture Indicator

Give Your Vertical Vegetable Garden the Perfect Amount of Water

The built-in, easy-to-read core lets you know when and how much water you should give your Tower. Now, you can say goodbye to over or underwatering and hello to water conservation. Plus, you can reduce waste by simply replacing the core as your product gets older rather than buying a brand new indicator.

Use a Flat and Drip Tray to Conserve Water

A More Sustainable Way to Start Your Own Seeds

We’ve found a way to take it to the next level, though—our Heavy Duty Seed Starting Flat and Drip Tray. When you pair this eco-friendly product with your seedling containers, you can ensure that each plant will get the perfect amount of water while also properly draining. The tray then collects the additional water that can be used again to hydrate your soil later, inevitably saving water in the process.

Pamper Your Vertical Vegetable Garden With a Water Breaker

A Gentle, Even Shower For Every Single Plant
