With 20″ high beds, there’s no stooping! You can grow terrific vegetables with 12″ or 20″ high beds. However, with higher beds, some of the vegetables will grow larger due to the extra space for the roots.
Yes, it can be disassembled and re-assembled. However, you may have to replace some of the screws.
Yes, all of our gardens can be built on any surface, so long as the garden area is level. However, because our garden kits do not have a bottom, the soil may stain the surface and the moisture could cause cracking.
Probably not. The garden will need its own watering zone. The needs of the garden are different from the needs of your grass or bushes. Plus, the garden requires a pressured water line. You will need to run the water from a main line or a hose bib/spigot.
Purchase 3′ wide hardware cloth with a 1/2″ grid, which is available at any major hardware store (such as Home Depot or Lowe’s). Before adding the soil, lay the hardware cloth in the garden beds and fold up the edges, pressing the hardware cloth against the interior walls of the garden bed. You don’t need to staple the hardware cloth or attach it to the structure; once you add the soil, the weight of the soil will keep it in place.
We recommend two products: Critter Ridder by Havahart and the ScareCrow by Contech. Critter Ridder is a non-toxic pepper powder. Sprinkle it around the perimeter of the garden and in the walkway. Use it proactively, once a month, before the critters discover your garden. The ScareCrow is a motion activated sprinkler. When it detects an animal, it releases a short, but startling burst of water. Place it in the rear corner of the garden bed. Combined, these two products should keep climbing and flying critters out of the garden.
Although a deer is capable of jumping higher than 5’8″, deer don’t jump into the garden because there is no safe “landing pad”. Due to the raised beds and the relatively small interior walkway, the deer sense that it would be unsafe to jump into the garden structure. None of our customers has ever reported a deer “break-in”.
The garden beds are designed to be filled with soil from the bottom to the brim.
