Guarden Greenhouses - Backyard Home Hobby Greenhouse Kits, Raised Bed
Guarden products are some of the most popular models of small hobby greenhouses
and raised garden bed frames. Their products are probably the strongest and
most durable on the market. They are attractive units, that make you proud
of your gardening hobby. The cover system allows you to extend your gardening
season for weeks, spring and fall. Your seedlings can get a safe, healthy,
and extra early start.
The smaller sized models of Guarden raised beds and hobby greenhouses are
popular for balconies, patios and decks. Some people have also elevated these
raised bed frames off of the ground. They place a sheet of plywood (cut to
size) atop sawhorses. Then, they put the raised bed onto the plywood, and
fill it with garden soil. This works great for those who are handicapped,
people with disabilities, and elderly gardeners.
Note: These systems do not have a bottom. Normally, you don't want
a bottom, so excess water can drain through the soil. If you are using it
on a patio, or deck, you will want to fashion a bottom. A simple piece of
plastic or plywood may do.
A Guarden Hobby Greenhouse begins with a strong, durable, long lasting
garden raised bed frame. This raised bed is made of attractive white, plastic
timber. Yes, the frame can be painted other colors with a special paint.
A cover system, with hinges, is secured on top of the raised bed frame. The
cover is made of plastic. Pest and insect covers are available separately.
Latches fasten the cover system securely to the raised bed, allowing it to
remain attached during high winds. The top is quick and easy to remove during
mid summer, and after the gardening season is over.
Fill the raised bed with garden soil. Mix in ample amounts of rotted manure
and compost. Now, plant your favorite flowers, vegetables, or herbs!
