It’s really hard to keep things alive. Children and animals for the most part remind you they need things by making noise. Plants do not do this. This is why they are so easy to kill. The Urban Garden Planter will help increase the odds of survival since it can take care of itself, at least a little.
These planters are designed to grow all kinds of different things. They’re not just for flowers, you can basically farm in them. You can grow vegetables, fruits and yes, even herbs in them. They also work just as well both indoors and outdoors. The exterior of the planter is made from UV and corrosion resistant material but it’s an attractive design so it won’t be an eyesore inside.
It is self-watering but it’s not completely hands off. You have to fill up the reservoir to make sure that there’s a supply of water and sort of keep an eye on things so it doesn’t run out. You can link multiple planters together and create your own little (mostly) self-sufficient garden. The Urban Garden Planter is $199.
