The photo below was taken in front of a shop in Oakville, Ontario. They wanted to improve the look of their front entrance and make it more welcoming. The Waterdots planters could be customized to fit their space. They are maintenance free and along with putting Waterdots in the flower pots, mean that they have bullet proof solution.

A Customer in Northern Ontario, Canada, sent us the photo below. He built a very nice looking window box and made it even better by lining it with Waterdots!
Their flowers should have a Happy, Healthy Summer!

The large 10 inch by 38 inch strip is a unique product we have provided to TSC and not available on our web site. They also have convenient payment terms and low delivery charges.

Just got the vegetable garden in. As weTare not very conscientious waterers, I made troughs about 6 inches from and around my tomato and pepper plants and filled them with Waterdots. First I soaked them in plant starter. Given the hot, dry weather, they should have a better chance of thriving.
But this is not the main reason I write. Our garden is at the back of the property - about 400 feet from the house. And beside it, is a forest occupied by deer and other fauna like rabbits.
We have a small place 'up north' and the deer love our cedars. They chew the branches completely up to about 8 feet off the ground. We have discovered that if we make sausages out of screen and human hair from the barber or hair salon and hang them from the cedars, the deer stay away.
In the summer, we do the same thing with our flower gardens up there, and now they stay away.
We have two theories about why this works. (Probably someone has done a PhD thesis on this and has the right answer, but here is ours.) Either our hair smells like skunk to them or they think there are humans around because there is hair in the area. Whatever, it works. And it is basically free, other than the screen.
This time my wife had some old knee high hose that were shot and I filled them with hair, made 'sausages' and put them around the garden. We'll see how that works. Last year the deer charged through a snow fence we had surrounding the garden to get at some zucchini we had planted. So we will see how this works.
Here is another trick we used on our flower garden up north. The husband (that's me) filled a spray bottle with the stuff that comes after drinking copious amounts of beer - you get the idea - and we sprayed the stuff on flowers that the deer seemed to think was dessert. Now this sounds gross, but it turns out it does not smell - interesting. And it's free. By the way you can spend about $15 a bottle for deer repellant, which chemically is probably close to the same thing. Stay tuned to see how this works over the summer. We are going to also use a friend's dog to mark territory around the garden.

When we first created Waterdots, we realized from our own experience that they were well suited to various planters, hanging baskets, window boxes, rooftop gardens and other uses. It turns out that we, ourselves, have used them in our gardens and we have heard of others doing so.
We have been pleased to receive repeat business - enthusiastic repeat business - from commercial growers and professional landscapers. As these people do this for a living, it gives us increased confidence that our products work!
They say that invention is often the child of frustration. In the case of Waterdots, our frustration came from the fact that we couldn't keep soil adequately hydrated, when we were away for periods of time.
We have a new frustration. We have been replacing planters on our patio every other year. And these have been expensive items often well over $100 each. We've tried painted metal, but they rusted out; we've tried sprayed concrete, but they disintegrated after two seasons. Fibreglass is an option, but they are hard to find. And plastic works but is ugly. Most of these products, if not all, are made outside North America and don't seem very well suited to our weather conditions.
We have designed a bullet proof planter, that can be customized, left natural, painted or stained. We have built some for ourselves and have recently sold our first planters.
Stay tuned for pictures!

Here is what our standard planter looks like. The planter shown is approximately 23 inches (58 cm) square and high. It is made with weather resistant wood, and can be left natural, stained or painted. We can customize sizes and ship anywhere in North America.
This size is $99 Canadian , plus shipping and taxes
