The Balconera Cottage has become one of the favorite new self-watering planters offered by Lechuza. Its rectangular shape makes it perfect for placing atop a wall or it can be hung from a railing or fence with optional fully adjustable steel brackets.
The German engineered self-watering system used in the Balconera Cottage makes it simpler than ever to brighten up a balcony railing without the usual hassles associated with growing plants in this environment. After the planter's reservoir is filled, the plants will take care of themselves for up to two weeks.
"You can now grow flowers and plants without all the mess and work," says Anton Zevenbergen, National Sales Manager for Lechuza. "It's perfect for apartments and condo's because the unique watering system means that there will be no muddy water draining from pots and cascading onto the balcony below. All you have to do is fill the reservoir and then enjoy the beautiful, healthy plants and flowers."
The secret is the unique self-watering system found in all Lechuza planters. Inside the stylish exterior is a liner that holds the plant, its soil and a layer of a special granular medium that perfectly controls the supply of water to the plant. Below the liner is a water reservoir that is filled from the top of the planter via a convenient supply shaft. A water level indicator makes it easy to see when more water is needed. For outdoor use there is a removable drain plug that prevents over-watering during rainy periods.
The Balconera Cottage is available in either 20 or 32-inch lengths and is finished with a realistic wicker surface in either white, granite or mocha colors. The planter can be hung from a railing with the optional adjustable recessed steel brackets that are invisible from the front when the planter is hung.
All Lechuza planters are recyclable and the international recycling logo is proudly imbedded on each planter. Plastic waste produced during the manufacturing process is recycled in-house and its subsequent granulated material is re-used in the production of Lechuza's self-watering accessories.
Lechuza is a division of the Zirndorf, Germany-based Brandstaetter Group. Parent company of Playmobil, a successful global toy manufacturer, the Brandstaetter Group has over 55 years experience and expertise in processing plastics. All Lechuza planters are designed and manufactured in Germany and are currently exported and sold in over 70 countries.
