In early 2013 we became aware of a leading green roof technology. One of the key components of this technology is a capillary irrigation matt that keeps the soil medium moist under the very demanding climate conditions found on rooftops of commercial buildings and homes.
We tested the material in planters and it did extremely well reducing watering frequency - both outdoors and indoors. Compared to previous summers, plants that dried out, now thrived with less frequent watering, when using Waterdots. Compared to previous winters, plants like Primula saw watering requirements reduced from daily to once every three or four days. Given this we decided to see if we could offer this product to gardeners, landscapers and nurseries - everyone interested in happier, healthier plants. Waterdots was launched in the spring of 2014.
