Waterobot

Circular plant watering with up to 100 year life

Our gardens demonstrate the circularity of nature, but garden technology generally ends in landfill. WR1 is not just a new on-demand plant watering device, its been designed from the start to be sustainable. All parts are small enough to send by mail and designed to be fitted by an unskilled end user with just a screwdriver. Its new ‘Free Your Plants’ parent brand will make all spare parts available, at affordable cost, for at least 25 years. All parts and accessories are recyclable. Life tested to the equivalent of 100 years, WR1 will nurture your plants and your planet for decades to come.
