Do your garden beds have a bottom? 

No, our composting gardens & garden beds do not have a bottom. They are designed to be placed on grass or soil. This will allow for proper drainage and give access to beneficial insects from below. Most of our elevated gardens have floorboards. Check product specifications. 

Can I put my garden bed on concrete?  

We do not recommend placing your bottomless garden bed on concrete. It was designed to be placed on grass or soil to allow for proper drainage and to give access to beneficial insects from below. 

You can line the bottom of your garden bed with landscaping fabric to help keep the soil from seeping out, if you can only place your bed on concrete.  

Where should I set up my garden bed?  

We recommend placing your garden bed in a sunny location on flat, even ground. Be sure to leave yourself space around all sides for easy access. 

Are your garden beds modular? Can I configure my own unique layout?

The majority of our Classic, Mezza and Urbana garden beds come with innovative posts that make for perfectly modular beds. This allows you to design and configure your own unique garden layout and size. Please check your garden bed has modular posts before purchase. 

How can I make my garden bed more stable? 

We recommend purchasing rebar from your local hardware store and inserting it into the post into the ground.  

How can I keep critters out of my garden bed? 

To keep animals from burrowing up into your garden bed you can bury chicken wire around the beds approx. 1-2 feet in the ground. You can also place chicken wire around the perimeter to keep them from climbing/hopping into your bed.

We stumbled upon the Keyhole garden concept while researching organic gardening methods. This inspired us to create our own series of garden beds using this African gardening technique. This idea was gifted to us by the African people and so we felt compelled to give back.
