To Soil Less(TM) shares its patent pending sustainable gardening system and method, which is ideal for any urban, suburban, and rural gardener. The benefits of having a gravel garden are significant but include: eliminating the need for soil and fertilizers, reduced watering requirements, reduced weed development, and lower long-term and short-term gardening costs.
To Soil Less(TM) founder Richard Campbell cites that, “As a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer from Mali, West Africa, I am all too familiar with the challenges of growing crops in developing nations. We think that gravel gardening is not only good for gardeners in the United States, but is a sustainable way to help address food security in countries with topsoil issues and widespread droughts. If a small gravel garden can produce over 100 cucumbers in one season, then village homeowners around the world can benefit from this approach to feed their families.”
At www.tosoilless.com, gardeners can learn how to adapt gravel gardening methods in their homes and community gardens by downloading the 2012 Grown in Gravel manual. Gardeners can now end the need for annual purchase of soil, fertilizers, and weeding products and enjoy a beautiful natural gardening environment.
About To Soil Less(TM) – To Soil Less(TM) – A private, family company based in Washington, DC, was created in 2011 for the sole purpose of sharing the gravel gardening method and technology with the agriculture and gardening industries to reduce the cost of gardening and aid in food security.
