Raised Balcony Bed Made of Galvanised Steel on Wheels
Herbs and Lettuce on Wheels.
With this compact raised bed (mounted on wheels) one can cultivate fresh herbs and lettuce on the balcony. It’s made of weather-resistant galvanised zinc sheet steel. Sturdily built, it is still lightweight and easy to navigate on its two wheels. Even when filled with earth it is not too heavy to be manoeuvred with the wood handle while the two feet keep the raised bed stable. Depending on the position of the sun (or shadows) the bed can be moved to the appropriate location. If you want to have it near the grill, just move it. If the crop becomes lush and takes up to much space, you can position it a little bit further from the seating area. The bottom steel sheet features a sinkhole in the middle so excess water (from rain or irrigation) can flow off. There’s a shelf as wide as the bed underneath for storing tools and gardening gloves, fertiliser or empty pots.
Gardening at a Higher Level. Natural Intensification.
Especially in confined spaces, the old horticultural culture technique of the raised bed offers the opportunity to naturally intensify horticulture and multiply the crops without additional fertilizer; In southern China, the culture has been intensively cultivated on hillside beds for centuries and the special fertility of this cultivation has been used. A further development from recent times is the raised bed, which has many advantages: the soil temperature is significantly higher than in the field - the side walls are directly illuminated by the sun. The higher temperature of the soil allows up to three harvests a year, as the seeds germinate faster and the vegetables ripen earlier. The right filling with the best soil qualities is a prerequisite for optimal plant growth. We add a manual to each variant of our raised beds. Last, but by no means least, in gardens that are haunted by snails or voles, a raised bed offers better control and control options.
