My First is a masculine flower pot.
My Second a joint, but smoke it not.
My Third is a swimmer, of sea or stream.
My Last is a mound, grassy and green.

Put me together and confused you may be,
But speak me out loud and soon you will see.
I'm good for all without omission.
So I'm good for you by definition.
