Raised Garden Beds
Raised Garden Beds Work Great!
Both ergonomic and economic, raised beds encourage bountiful harvests year after year.
Raised Garden Beds are a wonderful gardening concept. Less stressful on your back and knees because you don’t’ have to bend over so far. It is also convenient for those gardening from a seated position. You can customize the soil mixture in a raised bed to meet the individual need of each bedding plant. It is easy to set-up. Packed accordion style, it can be easily set up and filled with compostable material like leaves, pine needles, stick or other vegetation. Then, top it off with some new sterilized bagged soil and it is ready for seeds.
Using a raised bed in a greenhouse has additional benefits. Because the raised bed fabric is dark, it is going to absorb and retain the heat that builds up in the greenhouse. This is especially beneficial in the spring when you want to encourage seed germination and growth in beds that are warm. As the temperatures cool in the evening, the heat that has been stored in the bed will be released into the interior space. This concept is known as a heat-sink. It also works well in the autumn when you want to maintain late season harvest. By the end of the summer, the heat-sink engine is fully energized and will continue to supply heat during the cool nights to finish ripening tomatoes and peppers.

Ergonomic and economic
Raised beds, by definition, are raised. Therefore, you don’t have to bend to the ground to weed, prune or harvest. The dark colored fabric helps the beds to warm up faster in the spring, and when used inside our greenhouses, act as a heat sink where it stores energy (heat) during the day and radiates it back during cooler temps overnight- helping to warm everything inside. If you are an organic gardener, it is easier to remove pests when you can see them easier. The framework of a raised bed doesn’t take up as much room as a wooden frame and you don’t have to worry about the replacement cost when the wood rots. While the raised beds are not designed to be moved once they have been filled and established, they can be easily amended to accommodate specific conditions a plant requires such as a specific pH or organic make-up. The best part of using on of the raised beds is that they come to you and can be set up in moments – no building skills or tools are re
What materials are used to construct the Raised Beds?
Our raised garden beds are made from galvanized steel mesh and geo-fabric. They are lightweight, durable, and lasting 10+ years. Set-up takes just minutes with no tools needed. Standard models use a black geo-fabric and a premium option is available with white geo-fabric.

What is involved in assembly after arrival?
It’s easy peasy! The rectangular raised beds come flat, wrapped with a nylon strap. Simply cut the strap with scissors or a knife and unfold like an accordion. Set it up with the loose flap end on the bottom. We suggest filling it with decomposable material like leaves, clean biodegradable materials like grass clippings (those not treated with an herbicide), vegetable scraps, or animal bedding. These materials will really settle in the bed so it is okay to fill almost full. We suggest soaking it down to help it settle and adding 3-4 inches of new bagged soil. You can use garden soil but understand that you may be introducing some unwanted organisms along with it. I like to throw in worms as I find them in my gardening endeavors.
