Dingo Wicking Beds

Gardening the smart way

Wicking beds are an excellent way to utilise a Raised Garden Bed and the benefits are many! They are very popular with our customers and work incredibly well. Here are some of the benefits to expect from a wicking bed solution.

Low Maintenance

Benefits of low maintenance, wicking beds can be self-watering for an extended period of time.

Efficient

Wicking beds are efficient with water use due to less topsoil evaporation and being fed from the roots up.

Nutrients

Easily control the nutrients and pH of your soil especially when utilising a worm feeder which are popular.

Aquaponics

Wicking beds are adaptable to use with aquaponic systems, we can install valve fittings to make this easier!

So how does it work?

The diagram shows a simple and popular wicking bed system with an added worm feeder. The yellow shown in the diagram is a layer of geotextile which acts as a mild filtration barrier between the water and the soil. Gravel or coarse stone must be added to the blue water reservoir area.

Decide on your base

Your new Wicking Bed will require a base to hold water in the bottom. You have a couple of options for this:

Self Supplied

Pond liner

Line the inside walls and bottom with pond liner or heavy duty plastic.

Sealed Base

Fully sealed ready to go

We can manufacture a fully sealed unit with a steel base.

+ Valve Fitting

Additional fittings

Add a 1" (25mm) valve fitting for easy draining or aquaponic use.

Your wicking bed must be a minimum of 650mm height. We recommend choosing Aquaplate or galvanised steel for longest life, however Colourbond may still be used. Aquaplate is available at 650mm height only, galvanised and Colourbond is available in both 650mm and 800mm variants.

I rang them for a quote and spoke to Ben, who was really friendly, professional and helpful. He sent through the quote right away which was amazing - almost unheard of nowadays! Highly recommend!

      negative review  Be Careful!! Very disappointed with the pump I was supplied, failed on install and fixed under warranty but pressure switch failed 20 months later, Dingo wouldn't repair under warranty claiming the pump had only 12 month warranty. A call to Orange pumps proved this was not true pump had a 36 month warranty, but Dingo's invoice stated the pump was a Shimge so couldn't claim the warranty. Very Poor!!!
