The Raised Bed Garden Kit Comes in Different Sizes and Depths to Fit Your Gardening Needs:
All of the Raised Bed Garden Kit and Greenhouse Cover Systems are available with the Raised Bed portion of the system in several sizes and depths. There are many considerations for choosing which size Raised Bed Garden Kit is right for you. Accommodating root depth is your first priority. Installing a raised bed frame directly on the ground offers unlimited root depth. In this situation, choosing between a 5.25" Single-Rail, 10.5" Two-Rail, 15.75" Three-Rail or 21" Four-Rail frame depends more on your artistic taste (landscape artists and decorators may consider the ratio of "frame to plant height" a critical factor) and your functional desire to have a taller garden for gardening convenience. Growing deep-rooted plants when the soil is heavy-clay, very sandy or poorly drained, the deeper versions are recommended to give plants plenty of growing medium. The standard 5.25 inch height version can be used for shallow-rooted plants. A good rule of thumb to follow is to allow a minimal depth of 8 to10 inches for tomatoes, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, turnip greens, beans and cucumbers, and 4 to 6 inches for shallow-rooted crops such as herbs, radishes, peppers, turnips, beets, onions, lettuce, some varieties of cabbage, and dwarf carrot varieties.

Raised Bed Garden GreenhouseThe Advantage of Raised Bed Gardening with Raised Bed Garden and Optional Greenhouse Cover System:
In traditional gardens, soil compaction (compressed soil) can make it difficult for air, water and roots to penetrate the soil mix. Raised bed gardening reduces or eliminates compaction and allows air and water to reach the roots easily so they can expand and grow. The Raised Bed Garden Kit and Greenhouse Cover System lets you lay the groundwork for a healthy and productive garden. Raised bed gardens are inherently self draining since the growing media is above the normal soil line. Poor soil conditions and drainage problems do not need to be corrected with costly, messy and lengthy projects such as having your property re-graded or having  truckloads of top soil added to your yard just to add a garden or flower bed. Because the growing environment is "raised" above the normal ground level, Raised Bed Garden Kit and Greenhouse Cover Systems are self-draining. They provide for a way to instantly and easily add flower beds and vegetable gardens to your home, office, or school thereby allowing you to start gardening almost immediately!

 

How to Make Your Raised Bed Garden Kit and Optional Greenhouse Cover System More Productive:
The fertility of the soil is improved by adding organic compost, composted manure, and natural forms of minerals. Dig the soil, in the beds, to a depth of about 2 feet (double digging), so that the root growth and drainage penetrate the soil easily. Design the beds to your climate and soil type. Wet climates do better with higher beds; they dry faster because more soil is exposed. Sandy soils dry rapidly and need to have lower beds. Raised Bed Garden GreenhouseThe tendency for beds to dry faster and warm sooner becomes a problem when spring and summer are windy, hot and dry. This means that frequent watering becomes necessary. Mulching can also help keep temperatures cooler and help retain moisture in the soil. Mulch the beds with grass clippings or straw to prevent changes in soil moisture or temperature. Monitor moisture levels in the beds. Be ready to provide extra water to the crops during stressful times. Harvest or remove plants as they begin to crowd each other or if they appear diseased.

Lack of soil moisture and temperature fluctuations can make sensitive crops develop problems - lettuce can turn bitter; squash, tomatoes cucumbers and peppers will have more blossom end rot; and peas will stop flowering. This requires monitoring and appropriate action - watering and mulching - to eliminate these problems. The close planting within raised beds may lead to reduced air circulation and encourage diseases. Using intercropping and succession planting will help reduce this problem. Dressing with organic compost also helps alleviate this problem. Soil beds can sink approximately 3 inches each year. Adding 3 to 6 inches of organic compost or top soil will restore the soil bed. Structure your plants diagonally to get the most out of your garden. Place your tallest plants in the back of the bed to prevent them from shading smaller plants. To ventilate, open to desired height and clamp the open cover to the arched rod. The greenhouse design depends on the sun for its heat and light, especially when the sun stays low to the horizon (lowest in winter). If you use the Raised Bed Garden Kit and Greenhouse Cover System in the winter, place the longest side of the unit for southern exposure. If only used in the late winter, spring and fall place the longest side of the unit slightly more toward the east.


Care and Maintenance of your Raised Bed Garden Kit:
The Raised Bed Garden Kit is extremely durable and resists grass stain marking, fading and discoloring from the sun. A proto-type installed in 1997 still looks practically brand-new. The bright white frame still looks fresh and new--aside from a lawn mower tire marking which can easily be removed. You may paint the frame with Krylon brand Fusion Paint. A sample of the frame painted in Red and Green next to the standard white color is shown below. Krylon brand Fusion paints are readily available in many fine stores. To clean your frame, simply wash with hot water and soap. Do not use bleach or abrasive cleaners.
