Description & Highlights
Pharmtec Corp 4' x 8' Standard Depth Raised Bed Frame
Thanks to the Pharmtec Corp 4' x 8' Standard Depth Raised Bed Frame, (GF4896S) adding a flower bed, herb garden, or vegetable garden for easy access or as an accent is no longer limited to traditional small pots and tubs. When creating a container garden, depth is often the most important specification. The standard 5.25" unit is great as a raised bed over good soil, for flowers less than 3 feet tall, or even for building a sandbox. This raised bed is also great for shallow rooted plants, such as herbs, radishes, peppers, turnips, beets, onions, lettuce, some varieties of cabbage, and dwarf carrot varieties.
In traditional gardens, soil compaction can make it difficult for air, water and roots to penetrate the soil mix. Raised bed gardening eliminates compaction and allows air and water (thanks to its inherent draining system) to reach the roots easily so they can expand and grow. The Pharmtec Corp line of raised beds lets you lay the groundwork for a healthy and productive garden. You can even place your GF4896S on a patio, deck, or balcony or create a standup elevated garden. - just put a landscape lining inside the frame first and be sure the structure can hold the total weight (350 lbs - includes soil, plants, greenhouse). Use lightweight soil (available at your local gardening center) to reduce the weight to about 175 lbs.
