Raised Bed Garden Kits - for pickup at our nursery in the Redland ONLY
Raised bed kits include all of the supplies you need to set up a home vegetable garden
There are a lot of options out there for garden kits. Ours are not promising to be easy and instant. They are large and modeled after the garden beds we install for our clients. They require a minimum of 6-8 hours of direct sunlight, some elbow grease to set up and patience to maintain. That said, we're here to help you through the process! The kit not only includes the supplies you need to set up a home vegetable garden, but it also includes a link to our Intro To Veggie Gardening virtual workshop which you can watch as many times as you need to. We will include a PDF for you to follow when taking the workshop. More so, as a local company that is very tuned in with the growing seasons in our region we will help you select plants that make sense for the particular time of year and we use tried and true varieties for the best results in our tricky Miami climate.
We have two kits for you to choose from, the main difference being the size of the raised bed:
The 4'x8'x10" kit provides 32 square feet of growing space and can generally fit an average of 30 plants. The 4'x4'x10" kit provides 16 square feet of growing space and can generally fit an average of 15 plants. Each kit includes everything you need to set up the bed, including soil, organic fertilizer and plants of your choice!
How it works:
-Choose between two sizes, 4'x8'x10" or 4'x4'x10”.
-Once you check out we will be contacting you via text or phone call to send you a plant wish list form to fill out. The wish list form allows you to select the correct number of plants for the size raised bed you selected and it guides you as to what works well this time of year in South Florida. We can pack up the plants on the wishlist for you if you'd like to do contactless pickup of your kit at our nursery, or you can shop for them at our nursery when you come pick up your kit.
What is included:
-Depending on the size you choose, you will receive a partially assembled garden bed constructed of pressure treated pine. Half of the corners, which come together with 1/4" nuts and bolts will be assembled, you will need to assemble the rest. It involves matching up the wood boards, putting 8 bolts through pre-drilled holes and tightening with a 7/16 size wrench. All of the wood and hardware is included, the wrench is not.
-You will get a piece of our high quality Woven & Felted Plastic Ground Cover to line the bottom of your bed before adding soil to it. The liner we use is both woven and felted for best drainage and long term root protection from neighboring trees and shrubs. The liner can be simply held in place by the soil, or you may choose to staple the corners in place before adding soil.
-The kits come with the right amount of soil to fill the raised bed. We use a custom soil recipe that we've been tweaking for the past few years and feel it is the best fit for raised bed gardening in Miami. It does not include any chemicals or fertilizers. You will get the soil in bags. A 4'x8'x10" raised bed will come with a cubic yard of soil which is 13 bags of soil and the 4'x4'x10" raised bed will come with half of a cubic yard, which is 7 bags of soil.
-Each kit includes a bag of Sustane 824 organic fertilizer for you to add once you've added the soil and before planting. The bag of fertilizer has measuring instructions on it :)
-Depending on the size you choose, you will get enough plants to fill your raised bed with season appropriate veggies and herbs of your choice. Once you place your order we will contact you by text or phone call to send you a plant wish list from to fill out that we will use a guide to pack your plants! 4'x8'x10" raised beds generally fit 30 plants and 4'x4'10" beds generally fit 15 plants.
-Each kit also comes with a bottle of Neptune's Harvest Fish & Seaweed Blend which is a liquid fertilizer you will use to water in your plants and feed them once per week. Fish emulsion is a great way to keep your plants fertilized regularly and it also helps to feed soil life to continually improve your soil.
-You will also receive a bundle of 12 Large Wooden Garden Tags to label your plants.
-Kits include an 8 ounce bottle of Southern Ag Naturalyte organic pesticide so you can be prepared to tackle the first pest issues as soon they appear.
-Last but not least, you will receive a link to our virtual workshop, Introduction To Veggie Gardening in South Florida. It includes a 2 hour instructional video and a PDF syllabus.
