Less Time / Labor / Maintenance

Standard hanging planters require watering every day; large outdoor planters normally require watering twice a week. Our self-watering versions require weekly and monthly watering, respectively – and dramatically discourage weed growth, giving crews time for other work.

A Better Environment

Our self-watering planters obviously benefit the environment by conserving water. The fact that crews travel less frequently to water plants translates into other environmental benefits:

  • Lower fuel usage
  • Fewer greenhouse gases
  • A smaller carbon Footprint

Plus, our self-watering planters are made with up to 60% recycled material, saving both landfill space and the unnecessary use of virgin materials.

Cost Savings

Self-watering planters can save a city or park up to 80% of their planter-associated costs because of:

  • Lower labor costs
  • Decreased water usage
  • Fewer plant replacements
  • Reduced fuel usage (crews drive less if they water planters less frequently)

Savings are typically large enough that self-watering planters can pay for themselves in a single season of usage.

Plant Growth

The carefully engineered design of our self-watering systems promote healthy, rapid plant growth by ensuring plant roots always have access to water. At the same time, the ground surface remains dry, discouraging the growth of weeds, which hinder plant growth.
