Gardening has always been a peaceful and welcome diversion for me. It is also an important part of my personal exercise and activity plan. So, when one finds that gardening on the ground is no longer a realistic option due to balance and coordination limitations, they look for other options.
The idea struck when seeing a tree planted in a 200 gallon Smart Pot. I'm 5 ft 1 1/2 inches tall and can walk right up to it and sit on a travel stool to plant, pick and prune. Since I used store-bought soil in my Smart Pot, my garden is also organic and weed-free. It is also conveniently placed just a few steps away from the patio.
SmartPots come in a range of sizes and smaller ones could also be placed on outdoor tables. Watch the video below to see if a smart pot could be right for you.
