The Green Box Product Review

by Richard Imus on 12/27/12

Have you ever considered The Green Box to help you solve some of your gardening problems?  Maybe you've got limited space where you just can't seem to get everything to get the sun it needs?  Maybe there are rocks and other obstructions?  Whatever the problem consider the Green Garden Box for your solution.  It's a great way to maximize space, water usage, reduce weeds, and a whole host of other gardening challenges. It's a very rewarding solution to some very weedy problems.

The first thing you need to do is lay out the space you'll need.  You can outline your dimensions using string.  Just measure out your distance, tie the string to a few sticks or stakes, and there you go. Then you'll want to clear the area and clean out any obstructive turf or weeds, rocks and the like.  Next you'll want to dig down about an inch or two to provide stability for your panels.  Now you're ready to lay down your panels.  The Green Box is a concrete post, capstone, and panel kit that fit together to build raised garden beds.  Once that's done you'll want to lay down a layer of gravel to help with drainage and if you have problems with burrowing pests you can use a hardware cloth of steel or galvanized metal to help reduce and eliminate this problem. After that layer out your earth, making sure that it's even.

The Green Box

You can also alternate the layers somewhat if you feel you need it to offer additional support with drainage although simple landscaping fabric can work just as well.  And for best management of resources you should ideally space your plants closely to take best advantage of the sun, and to reduce weed problems.  The beauty of a raised garden bed is evident and offers an elegant change to many other gardening options.  What's more, the green box can also be used for concrete walls, dividers, terraced yards and retaining walls. The uses are limited only by the gardeners’ imagination.  The concrete is organically safe and adds a beautiful and environmentally sound option.

With just a little imagination, some creativity and elbow grease you can add a distinctive style and elegance to your garden or yard. There's every reason to invest in the time saving excellence of a Green Garden Box.  It will undoubtedly improve the existing beauty of your yard, garden and landscape.  So look into ordering a kit for yourself today.  And remember, it can also make a great gift idea for a friend who loves gardening as much as you!  Don't wait, check out www.GreenGardenBox.com today!

 

The Green Box Delivers More Growing Area in Less Space for Your Raised Garden Beds

by Richard Imus on 12/26/12

The Green Box design is a unique post, panel and capstone that when installed in your yard uses less space than any other raised garden bed design.  This design adds more than 33% more growing area when compared to using blocks.  The raised garden beds made with The Green Box look great and adds flair to your back yard décor.

The structural differences between block and The Green Box are quite different.  Blocks use surface width, gravity and infilling for support for each block.  The Green Box utilizes posts that are hand excavated and braced with a mortar bed well below the growing space, and using this design over blocks yield an amazing 33% or more crop space. 

The Green Box

Can you think of a better use of space in your garden area than more plants?  I’m sold on The Green Box for many reasons.  For me it is not only beautiful, uses less space but the selling point is it is made of concrete that is manufactured using a corn oil release agent.  This oil is biodegradable and is totally harmless to our environment.  Much concrete today still uses petroleum oils, which are harmful, to detach their steel molds.

When you consider all The Green Box offers and the costs, I believe there is only one clear choice you can make… which color of The Green Box do you like?  Southwest Terracotta, Rainforest Green or Cascade Shadow are the three different colors they offer.  Take time to make up your mind and plan The Green Box garden design in your backyard today!

 

Choosing Materials for Building A Raised Garden Box

by Richard Imus on 12/26/12

There are many materials to choose from to build raised garden beds.  Most raised beds are made for wood materials and need replacement every few years and many need to be reworked seasonally.  Some people, however, prefer cement blocks for their relative low cost.

Cement blocks are a good method for building a raised garden for their longevity, but their disadvantage is they take up extra space that can be utilized for planting.  Depending on the block size either 6” or 8” an entire square foot multiplied by the length of garden can be lost verses using wood. 

Today we do have a concrete product that uses even less space than wood or block.  This new product is named “The Green Box” and the space savings is phenomenal.  In a garden space of sixteen feet by thirty two feet you can build two extra garden beds which yield more produce in two three foot by sixteen foot planting area.  This is a whopping one third (1/3) extra space versus using block.   

The Green Box is made of reinforced concrete and is a post, wall and capstones system that comes in different colors to suit your landscaping needs.  Although they are primarily used for building raised bed gardens they have other uses that include retaining walls, terraced yards, fences and yard features.  The Green Box is a very versatile product that landscaping suppliers are finding their versatility an easy sell.

Customers love The Green Box for its many uses and they can add more garden space from season to season.  Gardening is a rewarding hobby that can be developed into your landscape to add a distinct beauty.  Check out www.GreengardenBox.com for ideas and material uses for The Green Box.
