Oyas Work in Any Garden
Raised beds, flat garden beds, rooftop gardens, container gardens, community garden plots, patio or porch pots, vegetable gardens or flower gardens. So, what’s the right size for your space? Let’s break it down:
The Large Oya covers a growing space up to 4 feet in diameter.
The Medium Oya covers a growing space up to 3 feet in diameter.
The Small Oya covers a growing space up to 2 feet in diameter.
Oyas come in three sizes
The Large Oya covers a growing space up to 4 feet in diameter. A nice big 8’ x 4’ garden bed is ready to go with two large Oyas. It’s perfect for:
- 100-gallon grow bag
- 4-foot wide raised beds
- Larger flat garden beds
The Medium Oya covers a growing space up to 3 feet in diameter. A 6’ x 3’ foot raised bed is set with two medium Oyas. It’s perfect for:
- Planter boxes
- 25-gallon grow bag
- 3-foot wide raised beds
The Small Oya covers a growing space up to 2 feet in diameter. It’s perfect for any garden bed with 6 inches of soil or more, including:
- Patio or porch pots and planters
- Container gardens
- 5–15-gallon grow bags
An ancient form of localized plant irrigation, ollas (we call them Oyas like they’re pronounced) are porous terracotta pots. When filled with water, moisture seeps out slowly through the walls to water your plants right at the roots.
Once established, the roots of your plants will instinctively grow towards the water source (you’ll need to surface water also for the first couple weeks). Over time the roots attach themselves to the outside of the Oya and draw water out as they need it. They take just what they need—no more, no less.
It works really well when I dug it out there was a nice ball of roots around it so you know it really works! The plants were happy and flourished very well when growing around it!
works well. Fill up once a week or so and let the goya work for you. We used it all summer with good results. Cut down on watering time.
