There is nothing that beats the fresh, and flavorful, taste of your own fruits and vegetables from a home grown garden. Large outdoor gardens take up a lot of space, and require a lot of work to get ready and maintain throughout the year. This is where a hydroponics garden comes in.
How Does a Hydroponic Garden Work?
A hydroponic garden is a garden that grows plants without the use of dirt or soil. Instead the seeds, and subsequent plants that grow from them, are typically suspended in a spongy type of medium that retains water, and water is circulated throughout the system to water the plants. Nutrients are added to the water, for the plants to grow their best. No dirt, no fuss, no mess. Hydro is the greek word for water, and that is what does all the work in this gardening system. The water delivers the nutrients to the plant roots. In regular gardens, plant roots get their nutrients from the soil. In a hydroponic garden, the nutrients are added to the water so plants have easier access to the nutrition that they need. The result is that plants in a hydroponic garden tent to grow large and beautiful very quickly. A hydroponic garden gives you higher yields, accelerated growth, and your plants, veggies, and fruits will have a better flavor. All hydroponic gardens have a reservoir or container to hold the water, and of course water which is needed to grow the plants, and nutrients are added to help the plants grow big and healthy. Some hydroponic gardens have a nutrient source built right into the system, such as using fish in an aquaponic fish farming setup. Many hydroponic gardens also include a water pump that is used to circulate the water, and a grow light so that the plants be grown indoors, in any season, no matter what the weather is like outside. This way you can grow your garden year round inside the comfort of your own home, no matter what season or months it is.

Hydroponic Garden vs Traditional Garden
A hydroponic garden can yield the same amount of fresh produce in a few square feet, that a traditional garden can grow in forty square feet. That is a lot of space savings, especially if you don’t have the space. A traditional garden requires several hours of work each week, where a hydroponic garden requires only minutes, saving you precious time. Another huge benefit to hydroponic gardens is that they require less water per plant, as the garden is a closed environment so that there is no water waste, and the water gets recirculated and continuously re- used. In a traditional garden, there is a lot of wasted water, and the water soaks into the soil, requiring you to water weekly and sometimes daily in the warmer months. The hydroponic garden uses less than a gallon of water per plant in total, while the traditional garden will require over twenty gallons of water per plant. There is also a huge financial savings with a hydroponic garden. A traditional garden requires a year one investment of around fifteen hundred dollars, while a hydroponic garden investment is around five hundred dollars. Last, but not least, is the reliability of the garden. A traditional garden has a very low reliability average on each plant, requiring most gardeners to plant multiple plants in each plant spot to ensure that one of the plants will grow successfully. With a hydroponic garden, these plants are started with seedlings with a very high reliability, meaning that they are typically strong and healthy and most plants will grow successfully.
