Can the garden be moved?

Yes, it can be disassembled and re-assembled. However, you may have to replace some of the screws.

Can the garden be built on concrete or asphalt?

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.

Will my existing sprinkler system work for watering the garden?

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.

What can be done to prevent gophers from entering the garden from below?

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.

What can be done about birds or animals that climb in the garden, such as raccoons or squirrels?

Our bird-proof netting (which will soon be available for our complete 8×8 and 8×12 gardens) will keep out most critters.

Can deer jump over the 5'8" high Deer-proof Complete Vegetable Garden Kit?

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”.

How far down does the soil go?

The garden beds are designed to be filled with soil from the bottom to the brim.
