The Edyn Garden Sensor's moisture sensor is designed to measure the Volumetric Water Concentration, or VWC of your soil. Soil is actually a mix of solids, water and air. If you were to take a soil sample from your garden, the VWC would tell you how much of that sample is water, by volume. The remaining amount (100% minus your VWC) represents how much of that sample by volume is solid and air. When you water your soil, the water fills in the spaces that were previously occupied by air. Since soil is made up of those three components, you generally don't see a soil go above 30-40% VWC when it is fully saturated. The reason is that the solid fraction does not disappear when you add water.
