The SIP Self-Watering Advantage

Perfect Growing Environment

Consistent water, always! Water wicks up naturally from the reservoir below - as the plants need it. Creating the ideal moisture environment for your garden to thrive!

LifeStyle Balance

Busy lifestyle, or often away for the weekends? No worries! A full
reservoir will last for a week or more, even in the middle of Summer. So you can get away without any water worries.

No Guess Work

No more wondering when to water, how much to water, or how frequently. Just fill the reservoir, and watch the float gauge. It's easy to communicate, and simple to structure into your weekly routine.

Save Water

Sub-irrigation conserves up to 80% of the water used by traditional top watering techniques. Evaporation is significantly reduced and wasteful runoff is all but eliminated.



Drainage Control

No leaking, no mess. Perfect for balconies and rooftops where drainage is a serious issue. The overflow allows you to direct any excess water exactly where you want it.

Rain Sequestering

Sequester rain water and store it in your garden! With a storage capacity of ~ 7 liters per sqft, the reservoir fills up every time it rains and saves that water for sunnier days.

Modular to Any Size

Clip it, SIP it, and Grow! The square foot SIPs can click together to create a sub-irrigated garden of almost any shape or size. Making it perfect for building self-watering gardens wherever you want to grow!

No Rot | Long Lasting Gardens

The waterproof liner completely protects your garden from the inside out. Water and soil never touch the wood - so your garden is protected, often more than doubling it's normal lifespan.

Food Safe

Made with the highest quality materials to ensure your plants and veggies can be grown organically.
