Planter Boxes & Raised Beds in San Diego and Southern California
How big / deep should my raised bed or garden box be? For most vegetables 12 inches deep, for tomatoes and large squash 18 inches deep, for herbs and small flowers 8 inches deep, and as long and wide as you can afford. Bigger is better because the best garden soil is 1) full or organic material, 2) constantly moist and sponge-like, 3) contains plenty of minerals, 4) drains away from the roots, and 5) has a thriving population of healthy micro-organisms. This type of soil delivers a constant flow of nutrients to your plants. Potted plants just can't do this very well unless you constantly tend to them because they run low on nutrients and heat up and dry out quickly and the micro organisms die off and have to grow back all over again. Use one of our boxes or raised beds that is at least 12 inches deep, line the sides with black plastic (to keep in the moisture), fill with 50% compost and 50% garden soil, add manure which is nutritionally rich, cheap, and nitrogen rich if composted. Do this and the soil will stay moist and the micro-organisms and your plants will flourish. You just can't beat the prices of our beautiful raised beds and garden boxes for deep healthy soil.
Why buy recycled?

The more emotional plea (the deceptive economics of Big Oil)
Every year hundreds of thousands of tons of wood gets buried in our landfills and we continue to cut forests faster than they grow. This problem is especially bad for our redwood and cedar forests (the main sources used for planters). Most of the raised beds and planters we sell are made from recycled wood (we use new wood for the parts that require strength). Go Green and help save the planet. Our planters are beautiful, really strong, and the cheapest you will find. And when you consider the recycling effect and how your purchase will help shift consumerism away from the destructive "more stuff" mentality, the cost to you is really low and the cost to the planet shifts from high to low. Imagine the health benefits for you, for your family, friends, neighbors, and for the planet.
