Additional Information

Exclusive | Aquacorner™ Soaker System Adds Self-Watering Ease to Existing Raised Beds

  • Retrofit your existing bed and transform it into a self-watering raised bed
  • The Aquacorner's internal plumbing brings the water right to the bed
  • Soaker hose waters plants slowly and deeply, so minimal water is lost to runoff and evaporation
  • Includes one Aquacorner, 25' of soaker hose and fittings
Watch: Aquacorners 

Use this Aquacorner Soaker System to retrofit an existing raised bed made with our Raised Bed Corners. Soaker hoses are ideal because they apply water slowly, right at soil level so minimal water is lost to runoff and evaporation. And they encourage deep watering, which is best for healthy plant growth. The Aquacorner makes it so easy — just attach your garden hose to the bottom fitting and turn on the spigot. Each system includes one aluminum Aquacorner with internal plumbing, brass fittings and a spigot to control water flow; a faucet adapter with quick-connect water stop; 25' of soaker hose and an end cap. Choice of four heights: 6", 8", 10" and 12". (Note: To build a new bed, use our Aquacorner Raised Bed Soaker System.)

Excellent quality and a Big Help

By New Leadership

Comments about : Aquacorner™ Soaker System,12" Corner:

Building a 25x30 raised bed garden. We just bought the units with the spigots in order to save a few bucks but I wish we had bought all the corners. It would have looked awesdome. Hoses have more water pressure at spigot and lose it by the end so the concept is not perfect but it beats a sprinkler. Plus, the hoses are buried so no tripping, muddy hoses and obstacles. Very nice.

I had three raised beds and bought an Aquacorner for each. Then I looked them together with hoses set up an automatic watering system with a timer. Now, watering my raised beds just happens!

Best Uses

    Comments about : Aquacorner™ Soaker System,12" Corner:

    I've had 2 holes from in the soaker hose and keep having to cut down hoses. I finally bought my own soaked hoses for the beds. Save money and don't buy the aqua-corners, just buy the regular corners! Then supply your own hose.

        I put this in my vegetable bed of corn and beans, it gets very hot here and I am able to control the watering of the plants easier. I also bought an extension to connect to another bed of vegetables.

          Comments about : Aquacorner™ Soaker System,12" Corner:

          Used this instead of a regular corner in my raised bed and it has proven to be a very convenient way to ensure my garden gets the water it needs. The soaker is effective and the faucet is made of good quality materials. The corner was easy to install and attach to the cedar boards I bought at the lumber yard. It fit perfectly.

          Retrofit raised beds

          By MsAllegra

          from Tacoma, WA

          Verified Reviewer

          Pros

          • Easy to assemble
          • Novel design

          Cons

          • Hose connector too low
          • Need to buy more corners
          • Screw heads strip

          Best Uses

          • Existing raised beds

          Comments about : Aquacorner™ Soaker System,12" Corner:

          I bought this in early February before the website was updated. The way it was originally depicted, shoppers would have thought this would be a complete system, 1 aquacorner, 3 regular corners, and the hose/fittings. Perfect since I was building a new raised bed for asparagus this season. The shock was when I opened the box and only had 1 corner to work with.

          When I called customer service to order the rest of the pieces, I recommended that the description be changed and/or sell it as a kit. Glad they took my advice, since it will help the next person.

          I still had to buy 4 corners in order to complete my bed and pay shipping again. Another 2 week wait and the bed is now built and the asparagus is going in this weekend. It went together easily, though you might want different screws. The supplied screw heads stripped easily. Not a problem now but will be a bear when I take it apart down the road to replace rotten boards.

          I really like the aquasoaker idea; however, the location of the outer connection is at the very bottom. I had to dig out a depression under that corner so the hose could reach. It's still raining in the NW so I haven't used the watering feature yet. Once summer arrives I'll know how well it works.
