Wide flower pot with a base to catch water.A wide plastic pot for plants with holes.

Planter box with a drip tray; adjust flow rate to water the planter box adequately. Plant out to form a seamless vertical garden.

Custom made drainage system with a pipe and guttering.

Mount a household gutter, paint matt black and you will never see it again. Silicone in irrigation tube and run to another garden, or to storm water if you have to.

Managing excess water with a container and a pump.

Trough to capture excess water, treat to stop mosquitoes breeding. Add a pond pump with timer to recycle to the top of the Wallgarden. Check pump head height to flow rate to ensure enough water flow. Optionally, have a licensed plumber fit town/tank supply and ball cock.
