Raised Garden Beds
Turnkey Raised Garden Beds
We have continued the Bailey legacy, inspired by the patented Waist High Gardens. We have developed two new lines including GardenBox and My First Garden. Our GardenBox designs offer a turnkey vegetable and food garden solution. Interested in growing your own food but don’t have the time or know how? We build and install them for you, using beautiful and durable red cedar. My First Garden is our container design for children, providing an easy and fun start to the world of gardening.
The Process is Simple
1. Choose Your Size
2. Choose Your Crops
WHAT HAPPENS WITH MY GARDEN AFTER THE FIRST YEAR?
Near the end of the season we will explain how to amend your soil to maintain a healthy garden. With the purchase of one of our container garden systems, we will provide this service free for the first year.
WHAT SIZE GARDEN SHOULD I GET?
A considerable majority of our garden installations are 4’x8’, and almost half of those are 2′ tall. Why get a 2′ tall garden? A taller garden bed means less bending and more soil for extra root growth. This concept was originally inspired by our Waist High Garden system originated in the 1980s by Grover “Pete” Bailey. Most families choose to get 1-2 beds. We highly suggest the 4’x8’ garden as opposed to the 4’x4’ garden because a 4’x8’ garden is the same amount of work for twice the amount of food. On average, one of our 4’x8’ gardens will be enough to feed about one adult throughout the growing season, though this depends on what is grown and how many veggies you eat!
HOW MUCH TIME WILL IT TAKE TO TAKE CARE OF MY GARDEN?
On average, customers spend about 3 minutes per day in the garden. This is typically about 20-30 minutes once per week!
HOW MANY DIFFERENT CROPS CAN I GROW IN MY BED?
We plant using a modified square foot gardening method that breaks the bed into 4 square foot sections. You can plant between 1-3 crops per block. Therefore, in a 4×4 bed, there are 4 sections of 4 square feet. In a 4×8 bed, there are 8 sections. This means you can plant up to 32 different crops in a 4×8 bed, but we suggest planting multiple sections of each crop to ensure that you have a sufficient quantity of vegetables to eat. If there is a particular vegetable you like, plant more of it!
WHEN IS MY GARDEN PLANTED?
We install and plant gardens throughout the entire year! Mid-summer gardens are very popular. Fall gardens produce amazing “cold season” crops, and the garden is ready for planting the next spring.
CAN BAILEY’S GARDENS MAINTAIN MY GARDEN?
Yes. We offer full maintenance services as well as education options to teach you through the season.
