For example, '6-in-1' means there are six possible configurations for metal garden beds. You can assemble six different shapes using the included corner and side panels. With these panels, you can unleash your creativity to build raised beds of various sizes and shapes.
VEGEGA is one of the few manufacturers that construct metal raised garden beds from Zn-Al-Mg stainless steel (Zinc-Aluminum-Magnesium). Metal garden beds made from this material can last up to 20 years.
Decomposing galvanized steel garden beds with a Zn-Al-Mg Stainless Steel alloy coating requires a very high level of acidity.
The neutral soil in which the crops are grown will not have any effect on the coating. Neither the metal nor the coating itself will leach any harmful substances into the soil.
No, the beds don't have bottoms. This design allows excess water to drain, preventing root rot, and also permits worms to access the bed.
By using bottomless beds, you enable plant roots to reach the nutrients below the ground.
No, they won't. This is thanks to the excellent reflectivity of the galvanized steel, which prevents most of the heat from entering the soil.
As a result, the soil inside the bed can rapidly absorb and dissipate heat from the stainless steel edges. Our elevated garden beds excel at maintaining a consistent and cool soil temperature.
VEGEGA uses extra strength 0.6mm thick Zn-Al-Mg stainless-coated steel sheets. This heavy-duty material is robust enough to support soil for decades and has a lifespan of 4-7 times longer than wooden or plastic beds.
The metal garden bed doesn't require any extra maintenance in the winter and can withstand temperatures as low as -76°F.
No, Vegega metal garden beds do not come with, nor do they require, a bottom. This design ensures better drainage and air permeability.
Yes, it's possible. We recommend using a 17-inch or taller metal garden bed, which provides ample soil depth for plant roots to grow freely and ensures efficient drainage.
For shorter garden beds, you can consider using landscaping fabric to minimize soil run-off when watering.
While the paint surface helps prevent rust, the primary rust prevention layer is the Zn-Al-Mg plating layer beneath the paint. Even if the paint gets scratched, it maintains high rust resistance.
Yes, you can start a raised garden bed almost anywhere, whether it's on concrete or in a corner of your garden. Just make sure it's located in a spot that receives plenty of sunlight.
Additionally, you can enhance drainage by placing the outer packing carton at the bottom of the raised garden bed.
Yes, you can do this, especially in 32-inch tall garden beds or in areas of the yard with poor drainage. Placing crushed rock or pea gravel at the bottom of a raised bed can effectively improve drainage and air circulation.
Since soil tends to settle and become compacted over time, having rock at the bottom of the bed provides space for excess water to drain away from plant roots.
It depends on the size and shapes you select, and specific instructions may be found in the configuration section of each product page
Landscape fabric is not a necessity. For 8 inches of metal garden beds, it can minimize soil erosion when watering.
Higher beds, like 11, 17, and 32-inch beds, do not have these worries due to the varying height structures. But if you want to keep your place clear or control weeds, that is an option.
Absolutely, you can! This technique is particularly beneficial for garden beds that are 32 inches tall or when dealing with poor drainage areas of your yard.
Placing crushed rock or pea gravel at the bottom of your raised bed is a smart strategy. It enhances drainage and promotes better air circulation.
Given that soil tends to settle and compact over time, this layer of rock at the bed's bottom ensures that excess water can effectively drain away from your plants' roots.
It's also safe to use our metal raised beds without rubber edging. We've already ensured they're not sharp to the touch by rounding their edges during manufacturing.
Adding rubber edging not only enhances safety but also enhances the aesthetic appeal of the metal raised beds. Therefore, we recommend installing rubber strips.
1. Inside the bed.
2. As illustrated in the pictures.
We recommend layering your garden bed with cardboard, branches, and wood chips at the bottom, composting kitchen waste in the middle, and topping it off with fluffy soil for optimal drainage, nutrients, and cost savings.
Since metal raised garden beds are relatively heavy, some damage may be caused during transportation. For example, impacts may lead to bending in the corners. Although we take great care to package our garden beds before shipping, occasional damage may still occur.
