Are you considering using Oyas for your garden but unsure which size is right for you? Oyas come in three sizes, each designed to fit various growing spaces and needs.

Oyas are versatile irrigation tools that can accommodate a wide range of garden setups, including raised beds, flat garden beds, rooftop gardens, and more. In this guide, we'll explore the three sizes of Oyas available and help you determine which one suits your specific gardening requirements.


Small Oya (Up to 2 feet):

The Small Oya is perfect for compact spaces such as patio or porch pots and planters. With a coverage area of up to 2 feet in diameter, it's an excellent choice for small gardens. However, its versatility allows it to thrive in any garden space with at least 6 inches of soil.

Medium Oya (Up to 3 feet):

Ideal for planter boxes, small raised beds, and larger containers, the Medium Oya offers coverage for spaces up to 3 feet. Whether you're tending to a modest garden or a more extensive setup, the Medium Oya provides efficient watering solutions. Consider using two Medium Oyas for a 6’ x 3’ foot raised bed for optimal irrigation.

Large Oya (Up to 4 feet):

Designed for larger-scale intensive growing, the Large Oya is a game-changer for high-output urban farmers, community gardens, and large raised bed farming projects. With a coverage area of up to 4 feet, it's the ultimate solution for watering bigger garden beds. For example, a spacious 8’ x 4’ garden bed pairs perfectly with two Large Oyas.

Planting Tips and Guidelines:

Regardless of the Oya size you choose, proper installation is crucial for optimal performance. Ensure that the Oya is buried with only the neck protruding from the ground, guided by the water droplet marker. Additionally, follow planting best practices, such as arranging plants in a circular configuration and selecting Oya-friendly species for efficient watering.

By selecting the right size Oya for your garden, you can streamline your watering process and promote healthier plant growth. Whether you opt for the Small, Medium, or Large Oya, these innovative irrigation solutions offer a sustainable and efficient way to nurture your garden.
