Alternative methods for traditional gardening

For those who are passionate about gardening, the development of technology has helped them transform their hobby into an actual business. This is why more and more people manage to make money out of this passion, since there are plenty of devices and new methods becoming more and more popular in the industry, which definitely ease their job. Those who do not have enough space to put into practice their ideas, or live in an area where the soil does not favor agricultural activity, can nowadays benefit from an alternative gardening method: hydroponics. With some basic skills and the most suitable hydroponics accessories, almost anyone can start their own gardening project, with all the proper conditions provided by artificial devices. Through this type of gardening, you can grow plants soil-free, only with water-based nutrient solutions. It works for flowers or foods, and it is a sustainable (both in terms of finances and in terms of environment) method which will allow you to experience and pursue your dream of having your own garden at your home. It does not require advanced agriculture knowledge, so anybody can try it.

Hydroponics is a technique which allows you to create a controlled environment for your plants, while also bringing you some benefits: it is both cost-efficient and eco-friendly. In addition to this, since you do not use the traditional medium, but a solution made of water and rich nutrients, you will save yourself the trouble of dirt and the mess the soil does. There are many braches of hydroponics, such as aeroponics or aquaponics, and each of them has a different growth medium: fiberglass, sand, clay or just air. Whether you install a growing room inside your house, or you have outdoor space where you can put a tent, this is the first thing you have to do before you start planting the seeds. There are many suppliers and offers on the market, but you have to choose something suitable to your plans. If you have a small project, you can even improvise something and find out that the basic things you need are just around your house: pots, buckets, tubes etc. these can be very useful in case you are only planting some flowers or spices for personal use, but if you are planning to expand in time, you may need to visit a local supplier of hydroponics accessories.

Hydroponics consists in many techniques, each of them being suitable to different types of plants and conditions. There is the NFT (nutrient film technique), where the roots are covered in nutrient solution and then drained, is used for professional growing, while another technique (more spectacular), involves suspending the plants and spraying the roots with the necessary solutions – this is called aeroponics. Furthermore, you can also use the drip system, depending on your needs, because all the methods are clean and safe. The simplest is the first one, because all you have to do is keep the containers filled with nutrients. Although this may not be efficient for certain plants, it is the most recommended for the initial phase of your project.
