This patented product offers a sustainable, easy to use solution for growing veggies.
Nutrient rich water is recycled through the system, making it highly water efficient. The water is pumped into the growing area, where it slowly drains through the cocopeat growing medium back into the water reservoir.
A water level gauge indicates when the water needs topping up, although this should only be necessary every month or two.
The automated watering system harnesses the sun's energy, making an Elevated Garden a self-contained unit that can be placed anywhere there is sun. The solar panel collects energy through the day and stores this energy in a rechargeable battery. After sundown each day the energy in the battery powers the water pump.
A solid state controller with no moving parts is used to regulate the solar charging of the battery as well as the watering of the plants at night. The system is fully sealed for outside use and has no user adjustable components, making it fail safe in operation.
Irrigation pipes with drippers disperse the water through the growing area. These can be placed on top of the growing medium or just below the surface.
