Watercabinet is a product for a small garden or balcony. By connecting it to the rainpipe from the house, it collects and stores rainwater. Other than a rain barrel, one is stimulated to actually use the water. In the small greenhouse little herb plants can grow, it has a tap with a pump to fill a bucket, there is a water hose, watering cans can be filled with a tap, and there is a small storage for garden equipment.

The winners of the competition will be announced in Hall 10.2 of the koelnmesse in Cologne on September 8th 2013 at 5 p.m. during the unique hour event. There will be three prizes awarded by a jury and an audience award which will be determined by online vote at gardenunique.de/youngstars.
