I just installed this wicking bed in my own yard. If you are not familiar with wicking beds they water plants from below rather than above. They’re basically containers with water at the base and they act like a giant self-watering pot. The moisture is drawn up through the soil via a process called capillary action or wicking.
I love working in my yard. I am a Texas Master Naturalist, and my yard is a Certified Wildlife Habitat. I pride myself in being an organic gardener.
