Raised Bed Gardens

Raised bed garden

For those that want to maximize growing area in a small space, consider our raised bed garden packages!  They are a great option for gardening as they are easy to maintain and maximize productivity. They come in a range of sizes and are either one board high (standard beds) or two boards high (extra high beds).  We also can install automated irrigation systems for the garden beds, which allow gardeners to spend less time watering.

Our raised bed gardens are built out of reclaimed greenheart wood. Greenheart is durable, attractive, and unique. This wood was used as pilings (poles that go in ocean) that hold up local docks, and later salvaged and milled.  Greenheart will last much longer than other types of wood like pine or cedar, as it is naturally resistant to rot and insect damage.  Since it is reclaimed it is sustainable and eco- friendly, not contributing to deforestation.  In South Florida, durability is important if you’d like many years of growing your own vegetables and herbs.

Raised garden bed

Raised bed gardens should ideally be located in areas that receive at least 6 hours of direct sunlight (the more the better), are close to a water source, and ideally close to the kitchen.

Consultations before installing are often not necessary but can be helpful for determining options for the placement prior to installation.  If you have multiple sunny areas to choose from but do not know which is best, we can always help decide on the day of installation or take a look prior using satellite images and pictures at no charge.  For those that would like an in-person consultation first we charge $100 (Miami-Dade) or $175 (Broward) and $250 (Palm Beach County).  In-person consultations typically last about an hour and we discuss the potential for edible gardening in your yard.
