How do wicking beds using WaterUps® cells compare to those constructed with scoria or river sand?
- Cost: WaterUps® cells are over 30% cheaper than scoria/river sand;
- Installation: WaterUps® cells are easier and quicker to install;
- Weight: WaterUps® cells weigh approx. 5kgs per square metre compared to up to 250kgs for a scoria or river sand based wicking bed;
- Water Capacity: WaterUps® wicking beds can hold around 50% more water than scoria/river sand beds, which gives a WaterUps® bed a much longer watering time. This means you don’t have to fill your Little Veggie Patch bed as often.
