Have you been looking for healthier options when it comes to the food you eat? Are you thinking of moving toward buying organic vegetables or raising your own? Farm to table cuisine is popping up everywhere — from restaurants to family kitchens. We, at E. Carson Meeder Fine Landscaping, are thrilled to see this “new” trend growing stronger every day in Bucks County, PA, and surrounding areas.
But, let’s face it, starting a home garden is hard work and takes time! We receive many requests for information and advice about organic home gardening. We put our heads together and have come up with a solution. We are now building raised-bed vegetable/herb boxes similar to those we installed at The Yardley Inn’s Kitchen River Garden. These organic, white oak, raised-bed vegetable/herb boxes are now available by special order. Our boxes will eliminate much of the work in bed preparation and allow you to create a home garden quickly and easily. The quality of our custom made garden box far exceeds those plastic versions you will find in the large chain home stores.
Take a look at this example that shows just how easy and attractive a raised-bed garden can be.
There are five easy steps to creating your own kitchen garden filled with seasonal vegetables and herbs:
- Choose a location.
- Place and pin down a fabric mat.
- Set box in place and level.
- Fill box with planting medium or use your own existing soil.
- Ready for planting!
These white oak, raised-bed vegetable/herb boxes are available in various sizes ranging from 3’x 4′ to 3’x 9′. They can be placed on existing grass or in an existing bed. Use single or multiple boxes to create the size, placement and design that you desire. And, remember that we are available to build, install and fill your raised-bed vegetable/herb boxes with organic planting medium. All that’s left is for you to plant seeds or seedlings.
If you are in interested in purchasing a raised-bed vegetable/herb box, or would like additional information, please give us a call or send us a message. Please keep in mind that we customize the size of the planter boxes for each project. Also, due to frequent requests from readers around the country, we need to make you aware that we only work within our local geographic area. Here are some additional photos to enjoy.
Fill one box with vegetables and another with herbs. After harvesting one seasonal vegetable, plant another or fill a box with different varieties of one vegetable (e.g. peppers). Have fun and experiment!
This box is filled with micro greens, basil, swiss chard, sage and more!
