After 4 years running the garden we had a first broken pipe and lost 1000 liter of water in one night. Comparing to the average of water usage for Europeans it was not a lot. For us – moving the spring water with IBC tanks and trailers from 15 km distance – it is a lot of water.
Especially the young fruit trees need it. Water is the liquid of life and it was highly recommended to aff some watering pipes to the infrastructure for the trees.
In all August 2018 we where working om this project. The system – called “gota-gota” – will give us the advantage on bringing water to each tree in the colorgarden. It little valves can be adjusted in giving a few drops per minute.
By opening on water tap we can route water to more than 100 trees now.
