The search for a media that is about “growing more, with less” took
years of development.
WaterGrip Growing Media is a patented proprietary invention that is the result of the critical and cooperative efforts of two individuals. WaterGrip is the result of their collective passion and quest to develop a growing media that would grow thriving plants while conserving water and other precious resources.

The time is right for WaterGrip Growing Media.
Today, urban expansion and the loss of green spaces, the scarcity of water supplies, the high cost of municipal water treatment (and therefore water itself), the inability for municipalities to meet water demand, high energy and labor costs, and the intense marketplace competition, etc. have all lead to growth in the green building industry and changes to greenscaping practices.
The challenge is to find ways to grow plants – for beauty, for food, for cleaning our air – that have less impact on precious natural resources and require fewer resource inputs. Water conservation is a must – to include reduced water usage and improved water management. WaterGrip provides a technologically advanced, yet simple, solution for water conservation while at the same time providing a growing media for superior, more robust, plant performance requiring fewer inputs. WaterGrip is a growing media for today – a growing media for growing more, with less.
