The New Year is almost upon us; the food has been eaten, alcohol drunk and all thoughts turn to your resolutions. One of the most common resolutions is to eat healthier in the New Year in a bid to improve your health further.
The price of healthy food has risen sharply in price and, by 2012, food was three times more expensive on average than unhealthy food. If, like many of us, you are on a budget it can be difficult to maintain a healthy diet which is why more and more people are starting to grow their own.
You could rent an allotment but that entails a monthly rental charge, a lot of equipment to prep the ground before you start growing and spending a lot of time travelling. A cheaper, and more convenient, alternative is turning your garden into an allotment. It might seem overwhelming to fill your garden with lots of vegetables and plants but, with the help of our Raised Beds, you can have divide your garden into sections allowing you to run your own allotments along with your garden plants.
We like to think that, after all this time, we know a little about different gardens which is why our range contains raised beds of different shapes and sizes including angled, rectangular and square. Each shape comes in a variety of sizes to ensure you’ll find one that suits your garden style perfectly. These can be used individually or combined to create new and unique styles – we had a customer who combined two angled raised beds with a rectangular one to create a large flower bed in his garden. The only limitation to what you can do is your personal preference and budget.
By using a raised bed, rather than growing vegetables directly into the ground, you have more control as to what soil is used and can tailor the fertilizer used to make sure you have healthy crops every year without the hassle of a large space to keep weed and pest free. The exterior of our raised beds are as low maintenance as the interior with the pressure treatment protecting it against rot and fungal decay without the need to annually apply treatment. With a little DIY savvy and gardening know how, you can have the garden of your dreams in as little as a weekend.
The chunky 45mm timber frame not only gives your Raised Beds a substantial look and feel eliminating the fear of your vegetable patch of flower bed doesn’t blow away at the first sight of wind. In addition to being substantial in look, the pressure treatment process forces the treatment deep into the timber rather than simply coating it like dip treatment does, allowing us to give you a 10 year guarantee against rot and fungal decay – no need to worry about insects causing havoc.
