Abanding the Tap: Considering Water Containment | The Kinky Hose Garden Project

·

We at the Kinky Hose Garden Project absolutely love the idea of rain water containment. The benefits are numerous, from the health of our garden to the health of our community.Tap Water or Top Soil?Rain water provides oxygenated, un-chlorinated water, which is ideal for plants. Moreover, chlorinated water from the tap kills microorganisms in the top soil or in your compost bin. We hate the thought of killing beneficial microbes in our topsoil every time we water our plants. Luckily, microorganism populations reproduces very quickly, so this may or may not be a big deal. That being said, why fight the life in your garden at all if you can devise better methods?
