FAQ

Why are the garden beds open at the bottom? 

The bottom-less metal garden beds prevent waterlogging. The plants will have access to nutrients at the surface soil level.

Can I place beds on hard surfaces like concrete?

If you're placing your bed on pavers, concrete, tiles, or anything you don't want to stain, we recommend using a bed liner or geotextile fabric.

To use, place your raised bed in position, then place the fabric on the bottom of the bed from the inside. Run excess fabric up each side and then fill your bed with soil. The fabric allows water to drain freely, but keeps soil from touching your surface.

Can the clip on safety strip handle freezing temps?

Yes, it is designed to withstand freezing winter temperatures.

Do i need support brackets in the middle ?

The 6x3x2ft oval-shaped beds, as well as the smaller ones, are rock-solid and stable, requiring no additional support in the center. As for the rectangular ones and 12ft long ovals, they come equipped with brackets and bracing rods for that extra safety and durability.

Incorporating the bracing rods into 8x4ft oval garden beds is a new design released in May 2024. If the instruction manual in the box doesn't reflect this change and you don't know how to install it, please contact us for an updated manual.

Will the beds get too hot in the summer or hot climates?

No, they won't, for a few reasons:

  1. The superior reflectivity of the material keeps most of the heat from ever passing through into the soil.
  2. The bulk of soil within the bed quickly absorbs and dissipates heat from the thin, but strong stainless steel edges.
  3. Compared to standard wooden, concrete, or plastic beds - especially if made from a dark color or material

Our garden beds outperform other garden beds in maintaining even and cool soil temperature.

Why don’t we use edge adhesive strips? Is it safe to handle the edges?

Our approach to product design and manufacturing is distinct. Unlike some other methods that involve adhesive strips on the edges, which may fall off within one or two years, our process focuses on creating smooth curled edges with seamless, integrated design. We prioritize the safety use of our products, eliminating the necessity for additional adhesive strips.

Our bed is packaged in thin foam sheet and plastic wrap - not clad in plastic film that requires to be peeled off before assembly.
