We all love the convenience of a self-watering container so, we thought, why not apply the same principle to an elevated raised bed? Tadaa! Designed specifically for our Vermont-made garden boxes this self-watering reservoir extends time between waterings and creates more even moisture throughout the bed. And, since water is drawn primarily from the bottom instead of applied from the top, less water will be lost to evaporation too! In our tests, plants grew faster, healthier, stronger, and produced more.
The retrofit is easy: simply remove your existing soil, liner and cedar plank floor, drop in the reservoir, insert the fill tube, replace the soil and add plants. Done!
