I use these as "liners" inside custom wooden planter boxes

By tomtedbear

Comments about : 39" Self-Watering Windowbox:

I have used these "windowboxes" for years as liners inside of custom wooden planter boxes I have built so that I have the look of the custom planter boxes with the function of the self-watering planters! My deck in Chicago was the talk of the neighborhood because it was so lush and pretty.

I have bought these window boxes repeatedly as I have moved.

By Tomtedbear

from Hot Springs, Arkansas

Verified Reviewer

Pros

  • self-watering, large reservoirs, large container

Cons

  • Gauge gets "frosty" after a few years. No biggie

Best Uses

  • Planter box liners and window boxes (of course!)

Comments about : 39" Self-Watering Windowbox:

I originally bought about a million of these (OK, maybe a dozen) to fit inside cedar boxes as self-watering liners on my 4th-floor balcony in Chicago. That balcony was the talk of the neighborhood with my lush plants along the perimeter of my railings. Then when I moved to Kentucky, I left those in Chicago and bought new ones for my new home. I only stayed in Kentucky three years and then moved to Hot Springs, Arkansas and just built a new deck with planter boxes built into the railings sized just to fit these window boxes as liners. They hold lots of water so I can plant lots of plants in them (the more plants you plant, the more often you do have to water, of course). I really crowd my plants in there and they grow lush and thick. I've been extremely happy with this product over the years. The only downside is the water gauges get "frosty" after a few years, but Gardeners Supply sells extras so you can replace them.

So far so good

By LS

Comments about : 39" Self-Watering Windowbox:

Installation was straight forward, window box seems to do what it's meant to do. I particularly like the water level indicator. Although installed after the worst of the dry summer months, I am optimistic that it'll be great next year as well!

Replacing same window box over 10 Years Old

By Bergamini Farms

from Westford MA

Verified Buyer

Comments about : 39" Self-Watering Windowbox:

Previous one lasted over 10 years. Still in good shape just wanted a new one. These are well build and stand up to neglect such as leaving them out in the winter months. The previous box faced the sun the majority of the day and barely showed any aging.

Instructions hard to find!

By Deb

from Cohasset MA

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Great for people who travel in th summer

Cons

  • Instructions not in box

Best Uses

    Comments about : 39" Self-Watering Windowbox:

    Love the planter but what a pain to find the installation instructions! They are hidden on the webpage displaying that item on the website. Wish they were enclosed in the box like 99% of other instructions or they could have at least added a piece of paper in the box which noted to look on th website for instructions to assemble.

    Great Windowbox

    By Paco

    from Charlotte NC

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about : 39" Self-Watering Windowbox:

    This is our second windowbox purchase. It is light weight and easy to install. We just this weekend planted new flowers for the summer. It is on our deck entrance fence by the swimming pool. Pop up indicates when water is needed. Would recommend to anyone looking to add beauty with a windowbox.
