  • Enjoy the beauty of luxury quality ceramic with the convenience of a self-watering planter.
  • Travel without worry of your plants drying out; refill the reservoir just once per week.
  • An overflow valve ensures your plants cannot be overwatered.
  • Save water! AquaPots use only 25% of the amount of water compared to similar containers on drip irrigation.
  • Eliminate fertilizer runoff since the self-watering system is completely enclosed.
  • Grow beautiful, healthy plants due to consistent moisture and feeding when you add continuous release plant food into the water tank.
  • Frost and freeze resistant ceramic pots can be kept outside year round in climates that don’t freeze or can be turned upside down and left outside for winter in the North.

AquaPots are the invention of award-winning landscape architect Jack Barnwell of Barnwell Landscape and Garden of Mackinac Island, MI and C3 Gardens of Naples, FL. After seeing the need for gorgeous, premium quality, self-watering containers for his customers, he designed and tested his AquaPots for nearly a decade on properties from Alaska to the Florida Keys with magnificent results.

Volcanic on Milky Blue Planter

Choosing this year’s AquaPot of the Year was a snap since it is everyone’s favorite color! There’s something about these cerulean blue tones that transport you right to your favorite beach destination and remind you of your happiest days. A natural sandy texture laps at the smooth blue ceramic, mimicking the ocean’s waves.

These cool blue and neutral ceramic tones pair beautifully with soft pastel and white blossoms, but also shine in contrast to sunny yellows, chartreuse and royal purple. Once displayed on your patio, you’ll notice how the soft blues echo the color of the sky, creating a harmonious vibe as you relax and enjoy a cold glass of lemonade. There’s plenty of time to chill when you don’t need to water your containers every day!
