Drip Irrigation for Every Landscape and All Climates - 2nd Edition

Hey drip plumbers to be, you already know drip irrigation saves lots of water, but did you know that drip irrigation increases the yields of crops? Wanna know how? Read this book. I guess it’s cool as Sunset Magazine said: “Fun book, great info. Buy it and save the world's water supply.”

Sunset appreciated the only fun book on plumbing (i.e. drip irrigation). You will love it too.

The book explains how to promote the growth and flowering of all plants—trees, shrubs, and container plants—in Every Landscape and All Climates using drip irrigation. (Déjà vu. The subtitle of the book.) Also, how to avoid picking the wrong “stuff,” so you don’t easily feel overwhelmed.

Roots Demystified,

Change your gardening habits to help roots thrive

Sunset Magazine: “Robert Kourik is crazy about roots. Yet Kourik’s purpose isn’t to amaze you, but to instruct. To that end, the book is filled with practical tips for gardeners…I recommend this as a standard reference.”  Jim McCausland, Sunset’s senior garden writer.

Roots Demystified is the only book in print for gardeners with such an extensive variety of root illustrations. (Hey, you can get a totally boring, very technical book for $200, but it doesn’t even have as many vegetable drawings.) I’ve got 16 detailed, awesome illustrations from asparagus to tomatoes, and many in between. And illustrations of the roots of seven fruit trees.

This is a great companion for my Drip Irrigation book.

Garden Myths: The Good, The Bad, and The Unbelievable

Old-fashioned fighting swords cut in both directions. The irony is you didn’t know when the other side was coming. All gardening techniques and assumptions have a double edge. One we expect and the other side comes as a surprise. Sort of like two sides to a coin. One side remains hidden until revealed. In reality, positive approaches to gardening can have hidden detrimental consequences. Likewise, so-called harmful garden concepts often have a germ of the positive.

The trick to a lifetime of good effective gardening is to stay flexible, and to be willing to change with the feedback of unprejudiced observation and the guidance of modern research. Like a poorly-staked tree, if you don’t stay limber and flex with the winds of change, you’ll soon stiffen
into a person whose outlook is determined more by constraints than by growth. Check those assumptions, and watch out for unquestioning routine and unchanging predictability. And remember, if you don’t keep
growing, you really won’t be growing.

This book will shed light on those myths and assumptions and get you thinking about new approaches to gardening.

Greater Garden Yields with Drip Irrigation
(It's not just for droughts anymore.)

Hey dripologists, wanna see how drip irrigation increases yields? First, read how the scientific literature—boring, but still fascinating—proves that, in spite of reducing water, vegetables yields go up. Nearly 100 vegetable, nut and fruit examples in 34 citations from climates throughout the country and world. Enough examples for you? You’re gonna believe it’s true. It’s even shown that yields can be up to 48% greater with drip irrigation than other methods of irrigation. Cool, no? You can learn why roots love drip irrigation moisture. Believe it or don’t, but I think you’ll learn how it works. You can also learn why so many of the soil’s critters love the upper levels of the soil. Maintaining healthy bacteria, microbes and other soil life equals greater yields. So peruse this eBook on drip irrigation of your veggies. It’s cheap.

78 pages of great information as a PDF that you can take with you on your iPad, laptop.

Buy now and the PDF will be sent to you via email - only $6 - six bucks American!

“Once again, Robert Kourik has done it! His latest book Greater Garden Yields With Drip Irrigation is the perfect blend of down to earth practical advice and interesting scientifically-accurate information.”

Dr. Judyth McLeod was the head of landscaping in a leading Australian university for thirty years. She is the most thorough and scientific garden writer in Australia. Click here to read the entire review.

No Digging,

For a Healthier Soil and a Sustainable Garden

NEW!

Mother Nature didn’t bend over much to make soil. Nature builds soil from the top down. She doesn’t dig and invert soil. This handbook is an introduction to No-Till gardening. It also includes a word about surface cultivation with the top two-three inches of soil skimmed, but no shovels used. This is a great stepping off handbook to an increasingly exciting way to garden. It can be easier on the backs of aging baby boomers. Includes permanent garden beds that thwart pesky gophers. Also includes a page of references.

Great companion to my drip irrigation book.
