Water saving products for landscaping & agriculture - each drop counts
About the Project
Creating a green world, even in the desert! Lite Soil is a revolution in gardening and landscaping that reduces water usage – an increasingly valuable resource – by up to 70 per cent. Our products are extremely user-friendly and provide sustainable irrigation to keep potted plants, trees, lawns and even desert vegetation green.
Lite Soil has developed fleece nets and strips with extreme water-saving properties that can be integrated into the soil. The system directs the water exactly where the plants need it: at their roots. Our brand new product combines netting with a fleece-covered drip irrigation tube. The fleece covering protects the drip openings, increases water contact a thousand-fold, prevents evaporation and reduces water use by up to 70 per cent compared with conventional above-ground irrigation.
Overcoming the challenges of climate change. Increasingly hot summers, less and less rainfall. It's bad news for us and for plants. Yet plants are essential because they sequester carbon and keep the environment cool, for example by providing shade. Our products can reduce water usage – an increasingly valuable resource – by up to 70 per cent.
Lite-Soil entwickelt & produziert neuartige, extrem Wasser speichernde Netze und Streifen aus Geotextilien. Ins Erdreich eingebracht, sorgen diese für nachhaltige Begrünung. Die Systeme werden unter anderem auf Rasenflächen, Sportplätzen, Bäumen, Böschungen sowie Wüstenbegrünungen angewendet. Dadurch können bis zu 70 % Wasser eingespart und die Instandhaltungskosten immens gesenkt werden.
