one sub-irrigated planter saves how many gallons of water



  1. 0 Votes

    A sub-irrigated planter is a planting box or pot that introduces water to the bottom of the plant instead of traditionally watering from above, and uses capillary action to propel the water upwards. This system allows for automated watering, which ends up reducing the amount of water used. However, they come in many different shapes and sizes, so if you’re looking for a specific number of gallons, I couldn’t find that.

    There is a project in Dallas to use SIPs in education and to save water, and they estimate that the raised SIP beds they are using will save 90 percent of the water used in traditional gardening. Hope this helps!
