WaterPulse announced that 10 million square feet of its watering mats have been installed in greenhouses, nurseries, garden centers and indoor growing operations in North America. Ten million square feet of mats equates to more than 230 acres and would cover more than 200 football fields.
WaterPulse’s watering mats limit irrigation to a few watering cycles of a few minutes each per day, depending on location and temperature. The watering mats use the natural capillary action of soil to deliver both water and nutrients uniformly, resulting in healthier, more consistent and more attractive plants.
“In an average retail season, a garden center uses enough water to fill almost 30 swimming pools, and for growers, water and labor costs are two of their biggest concerns,” says Jim Heffernan, CEO of WaterPulse, says. “We’re pleased to play a small part in helping to conserve vital resources.”
