    The Benefits of Raised Garden Beds

    Whether you are a gardening guru or consider yourself a novice green thumb at best, you may have heard the word on the street that raised garden beds are the new way to garden, as they help create a host of benefits that will contribute to healthy and blossoming produce and flowers all year round. They will pay for themselves in the long run when you’re tucking into your fresh fruits and veg and use those fresh herbs in your kitchen! Let us show you the ways:
    • Kiss consistent weeds goodbye
    Because raised garden beds are above existing soil, you can place barriers between the ground and soil in the garden beds. So if you take enough care to use weed-free soil, you will find that weeds are much less of an issue and no problem to remove. Raised garden beds-1, weeds-0.
    • Super Soil
    For plants to thrive, they need light and air-filled soil, which comes from more loosely compacted soil. Raised garden beds have less compacted soil by nature due it to it being naturally filled and not regularly walked on, which allows the roots to breathe really and the soil easier to work.
    • Access- what a breeze
    Forget bending your body into all crazy angles and poses to reach your beloved marigolds right at the back. Or crouching down to pluck some fresh basil from your herb garden. One of the main appeals of raised garden beds is their accessibility and adaptability. If you are well indeed past the days of getting down on your hands and knees to get your thumbs green, just put your raised garden bed up higher, or if it’s more compact on a tabletop- sure to save you future back problems. As well as this, because of their design, which is best done as a rectangular or square shape, it is easy to reach each plant- even those at the very back. This means that every single plant will be able to be inspected, watered, fertilised, adored and picked with precision and ease.
    • Utilise that precious water
    We all know that water is a valuable resource, and so we must utilise the best we can when it comes to working in the garden. Raised garden bed utilise water and moisture more efficiently than their usual garden bed counterparts, due to the soil being less compact. So when you are watering or are lucky enough to get a lovely patch of rain when it seeps into the soil, if it’s slightly loosened, it will absorb what it needs, then the rest will sink deep down into the soil and drain, encouraging your plants to thrive, thrive, thrive!
    • Combat pesky pests
    With raised garden beds, you can place some chicken wire underneath the garden to keep any underground critters out. Adding the extra protection of a garden enclosure like this one or some portable electric fencing will keep your plants safe and sound from curious chickens or invasive pest’s rabbits and birds.
    • Power to productive produce
    Because the quality of soil in raised garden beds is much better than that in general garden space, they generally have a higher yield of produce. An abundance of freshly picked tomatoes, strawberries and mint– yes, please!
    • Pretty plants all year round
    Raised garden beds are great for moderating heat, as they tend to warm up quicker and easier, without overheating. With the soil being able to warm better, this creates better growing conditions for your crop for a more extended amount of time. So you can expect your general gardening seasons to be slightly extended, meaning more pretty produce more often!
    • All for aesthetic appeal
    Yes, all gardens, not just those of the raised variety can be deemed attractive, but raised garden beds, if thought out and designed well are sure to become a focal point in your backyard and draw many compliments from neighbours and visitors alike. Some common remarks you may hear include- utterly fabulous, I must have one, oh that raised garden bed is to die for! Just to name a few.

    Why should we grow food for our loved ones?

    Lindsay Sheehan brings it down to the point: “Store-bought produce isn’t as nutritious as it used to be. Showing a steady decline since the 1950s, modern farming practices have valued the size, yield, growth rate, and pest resistance of fruits and vegetables over and above basic nutrition. You would need to eat eight oranges today to obtain the same amount of vitamin A as a single orange would have provided just two generations ago.

    The main causes of nutrient loss are growing foods in soil that is depleted in nutrients, cultivating fast-growing varieties that are harvested before maturity, as well as the “dilution effect” – a phenomenon where the larger the fruit and the more produce the plant itself yields, the less protein, amino acids, minerals, and vitamins are available in the harvested food. Sadly, the average vegetable purchased in the supermarket today contains anywhere from 5% to 40% less nutrition.

    When we grow our food, however, we have much more control over the process. We can enrich the soil with organic matter, we can harvest food when it reaches peak maturity, and we can choose to grow cultivars that give us the most nutritional bang for our buck.”

  • Free Delivery in Cape Town. No reassembly required! Six Good Reasons To Grow Your Fruit, Herbs And Vegetables:
    1. YOU KNOW WHAT YOU EAT
    When you eat vegetables grown by yourself, you know what ends up in your body. So you can be sure that no chemicals have contaminated the plants, and you can even witness and experience the growth process of your food. So you live much healthier and eat more consciously, this will have a positive effect on your health and your mind.
    1. YOU EAT ORGANIC FOR CHEAP
    The only downside of organic vegetables is the price. If you grow at home, you can choose natural fertilisers and avoid chemicals and preservatives. You eat fresh and tasty and that for the small amount of a single purchase of the plant.
    1. YOU GET A FEELING OF RESPONSIBILITY AND SECURITY
    Few things in life give you such a good sense of responsibility and security, like growing your food. You have the power, the responsibility for a living being, and you will have a feeling of absolute peace. Also, you save a lot of money and get herbs, fruits and vegetables in the best quality!
    1. YOU SPEND TIME OUTSIDE
    Caring for your herb garden is genuinely balm for the soul! You get your head free while pottering and digging, forget the daily worries and the stress of everyday life or the job. You automatically get a better and more conscious relationship with your food.
    1. YOU CONSUME LOCAL FOOD
    The transport of food over long distances (aircraft, trucks) not only increases the price in the market but also considerably deteriorates the quality of food. By home growing and cultivating, you avoid this degradation and get the most out of your diet! All nutrients are preserved; it could not be fresher!
    1. YOU WILL BE SOCIAL ACTIVE & DO GOOD FOR THE ENVIRONMENT
    When you start growing your vegetables, it can quickly happen that you have grown and harvested too much, and now there is an abundance. For example, you could delight your neighbours, work colleagues or friends by giving the harvest to them or by cooking something delicious for everyone. As a result, several people benefit from it, set an example for the environment and eat better!

  • Free Delivery! Experienced gardeners use raised beds to sidestep a long list of gardening challenges. The primary purpose of using raised beds is to be able to grow in a custom soil mix because your current soil is poor. The raised bed soil is lighter, fluffier, holds more water and has more nutrients. Bad soil is out because you fill a raised bed with a customised soil-and-compost blend. Greater exposure to the sun warms the bed, which allows more plant diversity and extends the growing season. Plants can be spaced closely together, so yields go up, water-use efficiency is maximised, and weeds are crowded out. Finally, raising the soil level by even 20 cm reduces the back-bending effort needed for jobs such as planting, weeding and harvesting.
