Easiest Pot Watering

Part of my mission statement, looking out my windows, ".......Oh WOW.........."  Not, "I must go get that done."
.
Wouldn't want to water these pots, below.  Could never leave town.
.
Drip irrigation.  Nor do I want to see drip irrigation tubing.  Easy, thread the tubing up the pots, from the bottom drain hole. 
.
If the pots are by the pool, line the pot with landscape fabric, ahead of placing soil in the pot.  Less staining on the hardscape.

.
At the front end of gardening, these gardens, above, were ridiculous, awful & boring, knew it for sure.
.
Now, these gardens, above, are smart, modern, playful, even better, useful upon myriad layers.
.
Perhaps you already knew, this is Valentino's garden, above.  Smart man, nothing in the garden is original, instead, centuries old. 
.
Not in your budget, above?  Don't fall for that thinking.  Too small.
.
Canopy, understory, floors, & pots arrive at all price points, free to extravagant.
.
Amusing, remembering my first thoughts, years, about these gardens, above.  Who was that person?
.
"Talent hits a target others can’t hit. Genius hits a target others can’t even see."
– Schopenhauer
.
Genius, above, was designed by truly great minds, Valentino saw it, finally, I saw it.  Hope you do too.  If you don't, at least hang on to the genius of others, maybe you'll see it in time.
.
Then arrives another layer of genius.  And one of the first Garden Design principles.  COPY .
