  1. Nice design. I admire the addition of the wheels for rolling purposes and easy transportation, but that doesn't make much sense if the user has to lift the Ely Can anyways in order to use it. Plus, its size suggests that it would not be easy for the elderly to lift. I would also reconsider the color black. I like the green, but black is not really conducive to the emotion one gets from watering; not to mention the fact that black absorbs heat and hot water is ineffective for watering plants.
