If you’ve ever tried to have plants outside, you know there’s a combination of artistic planning and manual labor involved with the upkeep. You need to have a gameplan of what you’re going to plant, where, what it will look like when it blooms, and how you’ll be able to maintain it. If you have a hanging planter that’s hard to reach, it’s not going to be a fun time trying to water whatever is residing in it.
If you don’t want to risk falling off of a chair or pouring water all over yourself, this Pulley System may safeguard you from those incidents. This is meant to be hung on the existing ceiling hook you would be hanging the plant on in the first place, and you will hang the plant off of this device. The woven band will hold up to 8 pounds, and can extend up to 42” from its case.
To be able to access your greenery there’s a pull cord that will release the band, and with your free hand you’ll guide the plant to your desired height. From there you only need to add water and send it back up so that the band goes back into its case. Of course, this could just as easily be used for bird feeders, wind chimes, or birdhouses as well. This is made of polypropylene and stainless steel, so it should be able to withstand years of use whether you keep it inside or put it outdoors. Getting a set of three in forest green will cost you $24.95.
