Raised Bed Gardens

For those that want to maximize growing area in a small space, our raised bed garden packages could be for you.  They are also a good option for beginner gardeners as they are easy to keep weeded and organized. They come in a range of sizes and either one board high or two boards high.  We also can install automated irrigation systems for the garden beds, which allows the gardener to spend less time watering and more time doing other tasks like harvesting, pruning, weeding, pest management, etc.

Our raised bed gardens are built out of reclaimed greenheart wood. We choose greenheart for being durable, attractive, and unique. It is originally grown in South America, used as pilings (poles that go in ocean) that hold up local docks,  and later reclaimed from the pilings that are removed in South Florida when new docks are installed.   Greenheart 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, not contributing to deforestation.  In Miami durability is critical if you want many years of growing your own vegetables and herbs.  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.

Consultations before installing are usually not necessary, as 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.  For those that have limited space or have a custom job in mind and need a consultation first we charge $50 (Miami-Dade County) or $75 (Broward County).
