Raised Bed Gardens

Our raised bed gardens are built out of reclaimed greenheart wood. We use greenheart since it is extremely durable, attractive, and unique. It is originally grown in South America and later reclaimed from the pilings (poles that go in ocean) that hold up local docks that are removed in South Florida.   Greenheart, being a hardwood, will last much longer than pine or cedar, as it is naturally resistant to rot and insect damage.  Since it is reclaimed it is sustainable and eco- friendly! By having one of these installed you are not contributing to deforestation.  Having a durable raised bed garden in Miami is critical if you want many years of growing your own vegetables and herbs, as most other wood will deteriorate quickly in our heat and humidity.  We can also install gardens without wood borders, but our wood raised beds are ideal for maximizing productivity for their size as the entire growing area of the raised beds can be planted.

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 are close to a kitchen.  If you need a consultation first we charge $50-75 (depending on location).  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.
