"yes..., I agree. I am of the same mindset. no tilling, no hoeing.., no plowing. spend your time considering different ideas or crops. I'm guessing the pvc needs to be replaced every so often, so beyond that, very sustanable."

"If your raised-bed planters have sufficient height, you shouldn't need to worry about the root system penetrating below the raised-bed line. (12" seems to be the standard for semi sophisticated roots systems) If not, you do not want to…"

Stephen, I love water gardens; don't have room for many.  Love getting new ideas; I'm about half water garden, half cactus gardens.  You can spend as much or as little time working on your water gardens as you like, just have to have the right design and balance.
