Overview

The LowRider is a great option for those looking to garden in a small footprint. With a self-watering functionality balanced with long lasting quality materials, the LowRider fits into any growing space with style!

This planter is made with full dimensional, custom milled cedar, stainless steel hardware, and signature box joints. The design ensures the woodwork never comes in contact with soil or water, and is completely protected from the inside out. As a result, the life expectancy is 2-3 times that of standard wooden planters.

Available in Raw Cedar to age naturally – or choose from Urban Patina, Coastal Finish, or Modern Clear for added aesthetic longevity. The optional caster wheel kit allows you to easily move your planter around with locking wheels. Wheels add 2.5” to the height of the planter.

Features & Benefits:

  • Boxes ship fully assembled (wheel kit assembly required)
  • Available in 4 finishes - Raw Cedar, Urban Patina, Coastal and Modern Clear
  • Self-Watering turns daily watering into weekly checks
  • Self-Watering reservoir holds 21 Liters (5.5 gallons)
  • Interior growing dimensions: 36"L x 12"W x 11"D
  • On average, fill the reservoir 8-12 times in a growing season!
  • Made from Western Red Cedar & Stainless Steel hardware
  • Optional locking wheels
  • 3 year Manufacturer’s Warranty on the Cedar
  • 10 year Manufacturer’s Warranty on self-watering system
  • Made in Canada

Self-Watering System

The patented SIPs self-watering system is designed to mimic natural water tables, where plants are watered from the bottom up. This natural design, known as sub-irrigation, can reduce water consumption by up to 80%, while significantly reducing daily watering requirements.

We’ve found that the 5.5 gallon reservoir needs to be filled on average 8-12 times a season. We recommend monitoring the float gauge on the WaterStem at least once a week, and 2-3 times a week during extreme heat waves.

The Self-Watering kit includes a WaterStem and float system, a foodsafe, waterproof liner, the 3” tall SIP insert, and an overflow water stem. With the SIP kit installed, the soil depth in each planter is 8".

Cedar Finish

Choosing the Raw Cedar will allow the Western Red Cedar to season uniquely and develop its own natural patina and character over time. Small cracks, silvering, knot holes and weathering are all part of this natural process.

Choosing the premium exterior finishes adds aesthetic longevity to your planter. The finishes used are from OSMO, an environmentally friendly wood finish, safe for humans, animals, and plants. The natural oils enhance the character and tone of the wood.

If your garden has one of the premium exterior finishes, you can either let it weather naturally, or refinish your garden every 2 years to keep it looking fresh.
