I have replaced a number of wooden raised beds in the past, often after only a few years. How long will these last?
Raised beds made from recycled plastic will last for many decades, probably even 100 years.
Will they leach any preservatives into the soil?
Not at all. They are chemically inert, neither absorbing nor releasing anything.
Do I need to buy a kit or can I make my own by just buying the lumber and fixing it together myself?
You can do either. If you have specific dimensions you wish to fill, you may prefer to buy full lengths and cut them to your exact requirements, saving a little money in the process. If you want something easy to assemble, pre-cut and with fixings supplied, a flat-packed kit is probably best for you.
Why do your kits and flat packs come in three different heights?
300mm is good general height for those people who are able to knee while attending the bed; 600mm is the perfect height for wheelchair users and 750mm is a good height for those who would prefer to stand without bending too much.
Can I buy these from garden centres?
No, they are only available direct from us. Please email your enquiries to [email protected] and let us know what you’re interested in and where you are.
How are they shipped out?
Due to the very heavy weight of these and all of our other products, they are sent out strapped to pallets through the national road haulage network. Their modular design means they will alway fit on a single pallet and so can be delivered to places inaccessible for large lorries.
