Growing a traditional soil garden isn’t cheap. To do things right, you may need to invest in compost, fertilizers, pest control solutions, irrigation systems and premium soil. (Who knew dirt could cost so much?)
Then there are all the tools—gloves, shovels, hoses and so on. Oh, and raised beds? Don’t even get us started.
Granted, Tower Garden isn’t inexpensive either. But you should think of it as an investment in your health—one that will pay for itself quickly. In fact, an independent study found that a Tower Garden can grow food quickly enough to cover the expense of purchase in just six months. (Of course, your mileage may vary slightly depending on what you grow, seasonality, cost of produce and other factors.) And because we built Tower Garden to last—and you’ll likely use it season-after-season—your return on investment just keeps getting better with time.
So Tower Garden is a smarter choice economically. But it’s also a smarter choice environmentally, requiring only 10% the space and as little as 2% the water as traditional growing methods to grow 30% more three times as fast. (You can learn more about the advantages of aeroponics here.) And Tower Garden recycles! Water and nutrients recirculate the closed-loop system over and over again.
Remember what we said earlier about grocery store produce being shipped? Well, that (in addition to produce packaging) leaves a pretty big carbon footprint—one that you don’t contribute to as much when you grow your own produce with Tower Garden.
Long story short, with Tower Garden, you can feel good about your investment.
