We set up 6 of these beds on the roof (rubber membrane) over our sun room up at the farm in June of 2011 and the results were amazing. In February (straw mulch) we were still heading up to the roof and enjoying the sweetest carrots imaginable.
The benefits are obvious:
High density planting - high yield
Easy to Set-up & Maintain
The beds are 39" x 39" x 8" tall. A hole is pre-drilled at the bottom of one side near the corner for allowing the drip system feed line to run from one bed to the next (a continuous run). Each bed comes with a drip system (see photo), a bag of "Native Goodness" soil amendment, a 39" x 39" section of 1/4" thick filter/water retention fabric (for the bottom to keep your soil mix from seeping out over time, and to hold moisture), and complete instructions. Add our timer and liquid fertilizer in line injector and all you need to think about is harvesting your vegetables and herbs (these beds are killer for herbs by the way) We think strawberries could also work if they are well mulched for winter.
Our rooftop gardens are constructed from EverEdge galvanized steel, powder coated edging. We believe above ground vegetable gardening in raised beds must
offer total performance as well as an attractive appearance, which is why we offer the
EverEdge steel raised garden bed. The EverEdge frames offer maximum durability, ease of use, and
state-of-the-art garden design.
raised beds are the modern, sustainable solution to above ground
vegetable gardens. Manufactured in England from heavy-duty
2 mm galvanized steel, they are extremely resistant to corrosion and
suited for long term garden use. A rich, earthy brown powder coating adds longevity
and a polished, robust style. These beds will last for generations
of backyard (or rooftop) family farmers. In addition, galvanized steel is 100%
recyclable, making it a high-quality, sustainable material.
EverEdge is engineered specifically with home gardeners in mind. The
beds assemble flush at each corner by way of a hinge and a steel pin. These pins are perfect for sliding hollow PVC tubing over and then cover with plastic film to create mini-greenhouses for season extension. If for some reason you are not satisfied with
positioned your raised vegetable beds, or if you decide to move, you can
easily remove the pin and relocate the bed to another location. The weight of the frames and the soil holds them on the roof - nothing penetrates into the roof in any way.
We recommend you have a waterproof rubber roofing material. We also suggest positioning the beds around the perimeter of the roof so they can rest over top where the walls join the roof for maximum support.
The enjoyment, connections
with nature, educational experience, and sense of pride this will
instill in your entire family is amazing. Not to mention the taste of the food.
