Install this watering system prior to filling your U-Garden with planting mix and you'll need to water your plants less often. In our test gardens we watered 60% less often, compared to a U-Garden without the watering system. The 5-gallon reservoir helps plants get a steady supply of water through contact with the soil, as well as through evaporation. When it’s time to fill the reservoir, attach your garden hose and in just a few minutes the soaker hose fills the reservoir. The reservoir also captures and stores rainwater, while allowing excess water to drain. Fits both the Rolling U-Garden and Elevated Rolling U-Garden.

Comments about : U-Garden Watering System:
I decided to put this in my new 2x8 Elevated garden bed...it worked well. It obviously doesn't cover the whole bottom, I put mine in the middle and left room between 2 slats in the bottom to attach the hose. It sure does help keep the soil moist and my veggies are thriving! Tucson is extremely hot and dry - this really does help.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I put this in my Elevated Cedar Planter Box. It seems to keep my plants happy even when I don't water them. The real test will come when I go on vacation.

Self Watering System
By Big "G"
from Winston Salem, NC
Product is of good quality and should last for years. Only reason I did not give it a "5" is because it has no water level gauge. When it is sitting in bottom of U-garden and covered with potting soil, you cannot determine how much water is in the pan. A simple tube with a float would be all that is needed for a gauge.

Skeptical but giving it a try.
By Tom S

I bought this product for the rolling U-garden which I intend for tomatoes. Living in the desert southwest adequate watering and at the same time water conservation is always an issue. I am hopeful this will help. We'll see.I did have a problem with a defective soaker hose that was promptly solved by customer service with no hassle.
