Why make self-watering containers?

Self-watering containers are an inexpensive way to cultivate plants out of the ground, which is especially valuable if you don’t have a garden. The reservoir below provides the plants with water for up to four days, meaning you don’t have to water your plants as often. Finally, since the containers are not permanent, you can arrange your garden any way you want!
