How does a Wicking Bed System work ?

WICKING BED SYSTEM

This type of Garden Bed system is called a “Wicking Bed” and is usually raised above the ground and encompasses a water reservoir system under the plant growing zones.  The water reservoir comprises rounded rocks with a perforated piping system, that is detached from the plant soil by a layer of Landscaping fabric or similar type material, that will keep the soil from falling into rocks and water reservoir below.

Water is routinely Wicked upwards in the direction of the plant soil medium to irrigate all the plants, this inspires the plants to a deeper root growing and subsequently better drought resistance plants.  This type of plant activity also significantly decreases the maintenance requirements for this type of gardening system.
