I've been gardening and writing about gardening for more than 20 years, yet I find I'm always learning new things about the plants, insects and other critters that call my backyard home. That's the great thing about gardening — it's never boring! I've worked as a landscaper, on an organic farm, as a research technician in a plant pathology lab and ran a small cut-flower business, all of which inform my garden writing. Someone once asked me when I'll be finished with my gardens, to which I replied, "Never!" For me, gardening is a process, not a goal.
A raised bed, built with the Aquacorner system.
Raised beds are the easiest and most productive way to garden. They're easier to plant, tend and harvest than in-ground beds — and now they're easier to water, too. With our new Aquacorner™ Raised Bed Soaker Systems, you can create a self-watering raised bed that makes it simple to give plants the slow, deep, consistent watering they need to thrive. If you're tired of dragging hoses out to your garden, you're going to love this new innovation.
Start by connecting your garden hose to the bottom fitting of the Aquacorner. Then, attach the soaker hose to the spigot and arrange it around the plants in the bed. When you're ready to water, turn on the spigot and water travels through the internal plumbing and into the soaker hose. When you're done, turn off the spigot.
Soaker hoses are one of the most effective ways to water your garden:
The Aquacorner Soaker System makes watering easy — and when something is this easy you're more likely to do it consistently. That means healthier plants and a bigger and better harvest.
The Aquacorner Raised Bed Soaker System includes three of our regular Raised Bed Corners, one Aquacorner, 25' of soaker hose and fittings. You supply the standard, 2" dimensional (milled) lumber, widely available at home supply stores. You can build your Aquacorner Raised Bed any size you like.
Already have a raised bed built with our Raised Bed Corners? Transform it into a self-watering bed using our Aquacorner Soaker System. It includes one Aquacorner, 25' of soaker hose and fittings. Simply replace one of the corners with the Aquacorner and set up the soaker hose.
a timer to your Aquacorner and you have set-it-and-forget-it, vacation watering. Simply set the timer to the frequency and duration you desire, and the water will turn on and off automatically.
