Optional Automatic Watering System:

Optional Watering Kit

Located at the back corner of the garden, this automatic soaker hose watering system takes even the simplest of duties out of your hands. We use a digital battery operated controller that is very easy to use. A garden hose can be connected to the unit, or the hose adaptor can be removed so the irrigation unit can be tied into your existing irrigation system with piping. When the controller turns on, water seeps out through the 50 ft. soaker hose. Price: $180.00. Includes:

  • Digital Battery Operated Controller - automatically waters your garden.
  • Soaker Hose - lay hose around your plants, cover with a layer of mulch, and water seeps out when controller turns on (hose stakes included).
  • Coiled Hose - conveniently mounted in the walkway of the fenced garden.
  • Sprayer - attaches to end of the coiled hose. You can manually spray your plants if you choose to, or use the hose to wash your hands.

Assembly:

You can assemble this garden kit yourself, or have a local handyperson follow the instructions and set it up for you. Assembly can take 4-5 hours, and adding the soil (75 cubic feet) can take an additional few hours. Note that no digging is required as the entire structure sits directly on the ground. Select a sunny and level piece of land for your garden.

All of our fencing sections are approximately 33.5 inches high and backed with black mesh. When the fencing is delivered, the mesh is already affixed. So, it takes only minutes to attach the fencing sections to the garden beds. At 67 inches in total height, the fence will keep out deer, rabbits and dogs. Up close, it looks attractive, but from a distance you can't even see it.

  • From Heather at 10/30/12 2:28 PM
    • Hello,
      I'm very interested in this garden bed kit. We have gophers, deer, and squirrels. Is it possible to lay wire beneath the planters before installing the entire project to keep out gophers? Also, are the fences squirrel proof as well as deer proof? Squirrels like to dig holes in between the plants and can cause almost as much damage as gophers. Could we easily install mesh on top of the fencing to keep out animals that might like tomatoes?

      Thank you for your help,
      Heather
    • Hi Heather,

      It is common in areas where gophers are prevalent to lay a sheet of galvanized 1/4" steel mesh on the ground beneath your raised beds. Cut the wire (using a hand shears) to measure 6" longer and wider than each bed, then bend the edges of the wire up about 3: on all sides. Staple this 3" edge to the inside bottom of the bed sides. Then shovel in your dirt.

      Applying the ground wire is easy and it should last the life of your bed. This will guarantee that gophers cannot burrow in. The fine roots of your plants can access the soil beneath the mesh, while the larger more vital roots are protected from burrowing pests.

      Yes, the fences are squirrel-proof as well as deer-proof. Because the fence has a wood strip at the top, you can easily staple mesh on top of the fence, across the garden, to close in the "roof". This is not a bad idea, since squirrels can climb over the fence and birds can be a problem if you want to grow berries.

      If you choose to install a fence across the top, you would beed to decide whether to use netting, like strawberry netting, or mesh, like galvanized mesh or chicken wire (poultry netting). The netting is easy to put on and take off, but it can catch and entangle birds. The wire mesh is more permanent but it will keep out all critters. My choice would probably be 1" poultry netting (made of thin steel wire) for the roof, with the 1/4" galvanized steel mesh (this is heavier wire than the poultry netting) for the ground beneath the beds.

    • Hi. I have more of a groundhog problem. Would they be able to dig underneath and get to the plants or is the bottom closed off?
    • We do carry a nontoxic mole repellent which may address your problem. Here is the link for more information:

      Raised beds are open on the bottom, and this kit is the same. If you are concerned about persistent mole or groundhog incursions, then you can put a screen across the bottom before putting in the soil. This would be 1/4" galvanized mesh. You would run this across the bottom and up the sides (inside the walls) a few inches, then staple it to the wood.

  • From Mary at 1/4/17 11:56 AM
    • Could this be modified for a hill; if so, what do you suggest?
    • If the hill has just a slight slope, adding a permeable liner to the bottom of your raised bed will keep soil from seeping out from underneath. Otherwise, no other modifications would be necessary.
