This design of bed is self contained and can be placed directly onto paving or any other surface. It can be build to any width and length, but has to be around 60cm (2ft) high for functional reasons.
There is an internal reservoir to hold water and an outlet in case this becomes over filled in wet weather, but an occasional check and top up in dry spells is all that is needed to keep even thirsty crops going for days. No mad dash with a watering can before the school run!! No lost crops if you go on holiday in a drought!!
An indicative cost a single self watering bed 1m by 2m would be £185, which includes construction on a clear site. Additional beds are cheaper – there are always economies of scale.
The beds can be built to fit your garden in a convenient pattern and size and prices will depend on the materials needed. We aim to keep costs to a minimum and pass on any savings we can make to our clients.
