Gardening with Less Water: Low-Tech, Low-Cost Techniques by David A. Bainbridge got me really excited to start utilizing some of the ideas in my
own garden. While I have less concern about drought here in New England,
I hate wasting water by any means. But I also want my gardens to
thrive. Bainbridge discusses some of the oldest techniques in the world,
why they work, how they work, and how to adapt the ideas to your own
garden. Buried clay pots and porous capsules are easy and very
effective. Other methods take more time and effort, but the end result
describing the types of water conservation and distribution, the author
gives many water-wise tips about rainwater harvesting nd landscaping
for water catchment. This book is a real keeper!
