LowRider - Mobile Self-Watering Planter
The LowRider is the foundational garden in our CondoFarm series of Self-Watering Planters. With locking wheels and a tight footprint that can fit on any balcony or patio, it’s the perfect garden for space conscious urban dwellers that want a taste of their own food, and a bit of West Coast style.
"We wanted to create a garden for the urban environment that would not only be functional and grow food, but also tell a story – about the wood, about the environment – have its own character, its own life.”
Crafted from Western Red Cedar – a uniquely beautiful wood species native to the coastal region of the Pacific North West – it features unmistakable wood grains and a natural resiliency to rain, rot, UV, and outdoor conditions. Western
Red Cedar – Thuja Plicata – is the ideal material for unique and long-lasting exterior grade planters. The Cedar used in the construction of your Low Rider is specially sourced and custom milled by us on the Sunshine Coast and then constructed by hand in North Vancouver BC. From Tree, to Log, to Timber, to Garden – Your garden will be uniquely yours, will season with time, and if properly cared for, last for generations.

Wood Finish Color Options
Raw Cedar : A completely natural look and feel - no stain.
Cedar contains a high natural oil content. It's antibacterial, self-protective properties which make it one of the most weather resistant wood to use outdoors.
Silver Patina : A non-toxic wood finish.
LifeTime Silver Patina wood finish enhances the natural color of the cedar from a medium grey to warm grey over time when exposed to sun and water. The color tends to soften and the natural beauty of the wood's grain will shine through. This is a safe and chemical-free wood stain.
Clear Coat with Black Trim : A premium food-safe garden box.
Extra care is put into this box by routering, wire brushing and sanding the cedar to create an smooth surface while also revealing wood grain and enhancing aesthetic. Two coats are then applied of OSMO wood finish, a treatment made from a unique combination of natural oils and waxes that enhance the character of the wood. The oils penetrate deeply, keeping the wood elastic and healthy - it does not crack, flake, or peel. OSMO is an environmentally friendly wood finish and safe for humans, animals, and plants.
