#Tinkerfun, submission to THE GREAT OUTDOORS design challenge.
here you can see a 2in1 watering can and plant pot, I designed.
The concept behind it is to have a plant pot that can be left alone for quite some time as you can fill the watering can up to a certain level and this then supplies the plant pot by means of six little holes on the bottom of the conical pot. Even with the plants potted, the watering can is still funcional, as the pot has a tilted finish and prevents soil and plants from falling. There is a level indicator for optimal water height in the can, not to get the soil too wet (please see the crossection picture with descriptions attached). Also there is a hole implemented to protect against flooding if the can is left standing outdoors.
The design is held simple but elegant to make it a nice little accessory in your garden which can also be put to use.
Hint: If you turn it upside-down it looks just like an old-fashioned water kettle!
Enjoy printing and leave comments if you like!
PS: I also designed a more stable version of the 2in1 watering can and pot. Tell me if I should upload this as well, but it doesn't look as good in my opinion ;)
