Introducing the Faux Pot. An invention created for the busy person, the Faux Pot encourages gardeners to plant directly in the ground while still achieving the same look as a decorative planter. Can someone say ‘2 birds, one stone’? For the person wishing to maintain a garden, but is unable to put in the time, the Faux Pot is the perfect product.
In today’s world, it’s no secret that everyone loves to be surrounded by beautiful things. As a matter of fact, who wouldn’t love to have a beautiful outdoor space to enjoy in their down time? It’s also a time where everyone is taking the environment into account. To be able to create such a space, in half the amount of time, using gardening products like theFaux Pot, would give someone such a feeling of accomplishment and connection with the earth.
Mackenzie Arnott, a BC native, who knows the value in having an outdoor living space to relax in, dreamed up the concept of Faux Pot. Researching and sketching her idea out on her lunch breaks, she came up with a concept of what she thought would be a great option for busy people to enjoy planting and their outdoor spaces.
The Faux Pot actually does not hold soil. It’s actually a shell that simply clicks around already in ground plants. The plants then look as if they were potted in a beautiful planter. A bonus is that with the Faux Pot, there is no need for transplant, very little maintenance, less watering, and is almost effortless to install. Best of all, the plants will reach their true growth potential.
