    You say the pocket holes are easy, but don’t show how to do it!

  2. Veronica Williams on August 29, 2020 at 10:20 pm

    Next time I go to lowers I got take my time be super excited.

  3. Gus on August 29, 2020 at 10:22 pm

    Why wouldn’t you just attached the cutters to the fence poles? Why the frame?

  4. Mark Humphreys on August 29, 2020 at 10:22 pm

    This would be great for succulents!

  5. Pia Colucci on August 29, 2020 at 10:22 pm

    if you want organic food, I don’t think pvc or any other plastic gutter is going to work. Use unprimed metal gutters perhaps. Certainly not plastic…it leaches toxins.

    Is the frame necessary if you are  mounting directly to a fence??

  7. Penny Giller on August 29, 2020 at 10:24 pm

    you could use an old door and recycle it just cutting out the center pieces! Recycle reuse! Save a tree!

    very good

  9. Jeffrey Helm on August 29, 2020 at 10:29 pm

  10. Manuel Mendoza on August 29, 2020 at 10:32 pm

    very good thank you x

    This would be like a fast foods stopover for the squirrels and raccoons that like to run up and down my fence.

    File not found!

    Did the lettuce grow in there, or they were transplanted in it for the purpose of this video…because wow, they looked great!

  14. Steven Lee on August 29, 2020 at 10:35 pm

    Great idea. I am gonna make one.

  15. Rhona Noriega on August 29, 2020 at 10:36 pm

    I want to start one but no good with power tools…
    Does Lowes provide this service at a charge?

    This is a really cool video, thanks for sharing!

  17. Marco A. Cruz on August 29, 2020 at 10:38 pm

    Very gooooood!

  18. N89J00X on August 29, 2020 at 10:39 pm

    I love this idea, but I worry about PVC in my veggies.  Isn’t this gutter material made from PVC?

  19. Matthias on August 29, 2020 at 10:39 pm

    "alright, now for this next shot, somebody run to the supermarket and buy 6 bags of lettuce!"

  20. K Fox on August 29, 2020 at 10:40 pm

    I never see these kind of gutters available anymore.

  21. G.V. Moutafis on August 29, 2020 at 10:41 pm

    * pocket screws and glue on end grain, Yep I can see it last at least a few months

  22. PhoxNews on August 29, 2020 at 10:41 pm

    I love her gutters

  23. 228justaround on August 29, 2020 at 10:41 pm

    do you have to periodically re-soil or add nutrients to the soil for feeding the plants in addition to watering?

  24. Daria Loginova-Edwards on August 29, 2020 at 10:41 pm

    this is just brilliant! Just need me some garden space in my top floor flat 🙁 well… maybe next property

  25. Roslyn Atwood on August 29, 2020 at 10:42 pm

    Cool idea, but might rather sub aluminum.

  26. Trumpetnote on August 29, 2020 at 10:45 pm

    That is a great idea.

  27. Cindy Villanueva on August 29, 2020 at 10:47 pm

    What.edible plants can you grow in the Gutter Garden?

  28. Mortgage Financing on August 29, 2020 at 10:47 pm

    That plastic is not food grade it will poison your vegetables if you use it for a food garden. Think about the chemicals in that gutter to make it last a long time.

    Ive tried both- gutters work best with buckets (tomatoes and cukes); I prefer square downspouts for smaller individual plants

  31. Brian White on August 29, 2020 at 10:49 pm

    Please note that I have an airlift pump design that could continuously keep this watered! It is currently called "airlift in a bucket" because I cannot think of a good name for it. A small aquarium bubble pump (that can be a hundred feet away, can run about 3 gutter gardens with continuous cycling of water, nutrients and oxygen to  the roots. The cost of electricity to run this is in the region of $5 or less per year and it saves big time on water. You need the little air pump, some 1/4 inch tubing a coat hanger some tie wire and a 5 gallon bucket to do it.

  32. Tulips Moran on August 29, 2020 at 10:53 pm

    Great idea!  With a little modification to your plan, I can install a single gutter along my west facing deck railing – lettuce just off the kitchen…brilliant, easy and cheap solution!

  33. onespeed on August 29, 2020 at 10:54 pm

    Can lettuce grow in 3.5 inch depth?

  34. VeNuS2910 on August 29, 2020 at 10:54 pm

    i like this. i will try to do one. 🙂 thanks for sharing.

  35. Ann Hendricks on August 29, 2020 at 10:54 pm

    I love this idea, and this video is very helpful! I wonder though… Who has actually tested the gutters for food safety in view of lead/cadmium/PCBs etc? They aren’t built with this use in mind, and I know vinyl items are often treated with lead or cadmium to help them last longer. Has anyone tested them, or have a gutter type to recommend that would be safe from heavy metal leaching?

  36. Otella Hobson on August 29, 2020 at 10:54 pm

    I like this idea .And I am trying it with plastic bottle for self watering.Thanks lowes

  37. Edwin Roman on August 29, 2020 at 10:55 pm

    She skipped the part I really needed to see….the planting!

    Thanks for this ideas

     why do all the women have such an annoying scratchy voice?

  41. Lowe's Home Improvement on August 29, 2020 at 11:00 pm

    Sorry for the confusion. The correct link is now there. Thanks -Lowe’s

  42. Dean R on August 29, 2020 at 11:01 pm

    It would probably work much better from a drainage and over watering/under watering standpoint to just install the gutters level and drill sets of drainage holes along the entire length of the gutters. The concept is kool, no doubt. But what are we really trying to achieve?

    If you think the last plant in the bottom gutter will receive the same amount of water as the first plant in the top gutter, you’re fooling yourself. Some plants will suffer from too much water, others from too little. Just install them level and allow the water to seek it’s own level. Nature has never failed us here. Plus you won’t have to explain to everyone that sees it that you hung the gutters crooked on purpose.

  43. Annette Freeman on August 29, 2020 at 11:04 pm

    Ummm, thinking it’s not food safe plastic. Good idea for flowers though.

  44. liz on August 29, 2020 at 11:09 pm

    brian plz list yr how to site

  45. James Homer on August 29, 2020 at 11:10 pm

    Choose another material to use over vinyl if your going to be growing food in the garden.  Vinyl leach into the dirt and water and into your food.  I’m surprised Lowe’s recommended vinyl over aluminum.

  46. Kathie Baldridge on August 29, 2020 at 11:12 pm

    The links listed and suggested don’t work?

  47. Mortgage Financing on August 29, 2020 at 11:16 pm

    Isn’t the plastic toxic to grow vegetables in ? If it heats ups in the sun it may not be good .

    It’s always a good idea to enrich your soil each year, especially if you’re growing the same type of plants in the same place each time. There are several things you can do: add compost material, fertilizer or additional soil. Visit your local store for help picking out a fertilizer that’s suitable for your area.
