With a surface area of 2400mm x 800mm, The Woodlands, performs well as a single vegetable garden and when installed in groups of 4 or more, it becomes a versatile and hassle-free community garden.
The keys to the durability of the "Woodlands" are the 200mm x 50mm x 3mm aluminium RHS (rectangular hollow section) which form the walls and our unique molded FRP (fibreglass reinforced plastic) corners. The result is a strong, stable and durable garden bed which will not collapse under the weight of its soil load, nor deteriorate in the tough Australian conditions like so many others do.......and the reason we can offer a 5 year warranty.
While the "Woodlands" comes standard in mill finish, we will apply high-gloss 2-pack in the colour of your choice if you want your garden bed to stand-out from the crowd.
The "Woodlands" features a reservoir below the growing medium which provides water directly to the root zone through capillary action. The reservoir is filled with a wicking medium that holds the moisture and allows it to migrate upward into the soil zone. Water is introduced through fittings installed on the side of the bed, including a water level gauge to indicate when refilling is required. The reservoir has an overflow outlet which prevents the growing media from becoming saturated.
Watering from below is an ideal way to support plant growth and bring nutrients directly to the root zone. It is water efficient, discourages weed growth and salting of soil over time. A wicking bed will eliminate the need for watering for at least a week in dry weather. Tree roots cannot invade the garden and rob the much needed nutrients from your plants. As water will not leak from the bed in an uncontrolled or hazardous way, Green Zeen wicking beds can be installed on hard surfaces without any danger or damage.
