Home gardening is a great method to reduce both your monthly food budget and environmental impact. In this guide, you will be shown how to build a planter, capable of growing a variety of different types of produce and/or herbs, along with a drip irrigation system to deter disease and pests and passively keep the soil moist. Furthermore, the drip system is designed with a leak rate (0.05 gal/hr) a full order of magnitude below the leak rates obtained from commercial drip irrigation products (0.5 gal/hr), along with reduced cost. Simply pour a few glasses of water into the bucket and allow gravity to slowly feed the water to your plants for hours. This step-by-step guide was written for even the most inexperienced builder or gardener and teaches the basics of gravity irrigation design, as well as how the system could be improved in the future.
