Container Gardening Technology: Self-Watering & Beyond

Maybe you’re too busy to be bothered with tending to your plants. Or maybe you jet off to new destinations every other week and finding someone to water is more trouble than it’s worth. Or maybe you’re just lazy. Regardless of what your obstacles may be, patent-pending My Lazy GardenerTM systems and their self-watering technology make it possible for everyone to have a flourishing indoor or outdoor container garden.

With two sizes, My Lazy Gardener self-watering system can be used in container gardens 10 to 12 inches in diameter (regular) and 14 to 22 inches in diameter (large). It makes gardening virtually automatic through a blend of technology that waters, aerates and heats to create optimal growing conditions for your vegetables or flowers. Installing a My Lazy Gardener growing aid directly into the soil of a potted plant will extend your growing season, produce a greater yield and conserve both water and fertilizer.

For you outdoor gardeners, Lazy Gardener has a raised bed garden self-watering system, too.

Moisture Delivery Wick

Uses up to 90 percent less water, yet still provides a constant, controlled moisture vapor to the root system for perfect root zone hydration.

Thermostatic Heating Element

Sipping just seven watts of electricity, it maintains an optimal sub-surface temperature to extend the growing season by months while also facilitating rapid, robust and healthy root development.

Aggregate Base (not required)

Use a base of coarse gravel or medium stones. Pea gravel is not recommended. This layer promotes healthy aeration and oxygen delivery to the root zone while also serving as a heat sink.

Water Supply Line

We’ve carefully scaled the water supply line with the moisture delivery wick and heating element to prevent swamping the root system.

Water Reservoir (not included)

Use any clean, food-safe container, such as a plastic milk jug or soda bottle. The larger the reservoir, the less often you will need to replenish it.

Evaporative Lift Process Aeration

The thermostatic heating element simultaneously heats the soil and air. As the warm air rises out of the container, cooler air is drawn in through the container’s drainage holes, creating constant root-zone aeration.
