You have probably heard of all the reasons why you should be surrounded by plants as they are beneficial for a person’s well-being, but if you live in a city (as most of us do), you might be lacking the needed space for the garden of your dreams. Unlike in the past, when people grew plants because of practical purposes, nowadays the thought of a garden is more of one full of colours (created by flowers and shrubs) that will leave everyone in awe. If you live in a house with a tiny yard or an apartment, you shouldn’t give up on having a garden because as it happens, this is the century of inventions.
You know the importance of choosing the proper plants that will thrive in the weather conditions of where you live and not less significant are the planters you place them in. Having in mind how almost everyone is pressed for time in this fast paced world, people lack the time for taking care of all their errands, let alone their plants. This is what brought to the creation of self-watering planter boxes. When looking for your own planter, you will come across modern planter boxes that a re designed to be practical and rid you of watering, while also having a certain amount of beauty with them to add to your décor.
Nowadays, modern planter boxes come with a built-in water reservoir that requires low maintenance and you can easily refill it every time the level indicator shows low amount of water is left. This helps you save both on watering bills and the life of your plants, because it is not uncommon for urban gardeners to either exaggerate with the watering and overdo it or forget to do it as often as necessary. Plants get as much water as they require from the reservoir through their root system and dripping is also taken into consideration with the slide-in drip tray.
The hard wearing materials that these planter boxes are made of, with UV and corrosion resistant properties, means you can have them outdoors as much as indoors, knowing neither their colour nor their form will lose their primary beauty. The connecter hoses feature allows for several planter boxes to be connected, which is ideal if you want to create a separated area at your balcony or living room for instance. Mini designs enable you to grow your own vegetables and herbs in the middle of your kitchen either hung or placed on a counter or you can use the planter boxes to decorate your windows.
