Self-watering Planter - Perfect design for all the reasons stated in the article, PLUS, because of the raised bed design, where the walls go all the way to the ground, it's a PERFECT solution to hide the septic tank risers my builder had to install right. near. my. patio! If my husband and I can do this, no one will ever know those ugly things are even there! Could even stain or paint them if i wanted to dress it up a bit! So excited to resolve two problems with one solution!
