Garden Box To Go

Urban garden boxes for yards, balconies, patios and roof tops.  These boxes are perfect for square foot gardening. Easy to assemble, and locally made with  Nova Scotian hemlock. I am building these boxes to encourage new gardeners in HRM, regardless of dwelling type, through a simple garden in a box concept.  Boxes are available in 5 sizes, are locally made out of Nova Scotian Hemlock,  and can be picked up or shipped direct to consumer.

Box Size- your box size depends on how much you want to grow, your time and your space available.  The rule of thumb for square foot gardening is that each square foot is dedicated to a vegetable.  So if you have a 4 x 4 garden, you’ll have 16 types of vegetables.
