Entertainer Steve Hall of Nashville is the brother of Larry Hall, inventor of the rain gutter garden. Steve lives on a houseboat with no land to grow a vegetable garden. Brother Larry’s sub-irrigated rain gutter system is the perfect solution. Steve is now growing vegetables on a floating dock next to his houseboat.
This is a good example of how adaptable portable and productive alternative garden systems have become. Sub-irrigated planters (SIPs) are one of the most popular. The rain gutter irrigation system makes SIPs even more compatible with busy life styles.
Many people enjoy the physical labor of in-ground gardening but it can be heavy work, particularly for older folks. It also requires scarce tillable urban land where soil contamination is common. As Steve's garden demonstrates, you do not need land to grow fresh vegetables. You just need some space in the sun, no matter what the surface or location.
Auto-irrigated SIPs like the rain gutter system remove the heavy work and reduce maintenance time. In addition, they are more productive while using far less water. They are the perfect solution for our ever-increasing renter and nomadic urban population.
