HI there,

My name is Maarten and I am a designer researching water irrigation systems and hoping to learn more about different views on how you take care of your garden.

Here are some questions which I greatly appreciate getting your feedback on. The list may seem a little long but feedback on any question would be super helpful!

You can respond directly to this posting or e-mail me at gardenresearcher@yahoo.com

Thank you.
