TERRAform raised bed makes gardening wheelchair accessible

TERRAform raised bed makes gardening wheelchair accessible | Garden Designer | Scoop.it

The TERRAform pod is made from food safe, UV-treated, recycled polyethylene that is molded to fit the dimensions of wheelchairs. When the three-sided pen is built around the pod it creates a garden at table height that allows easy access for planting, weeding and harvesting. Currently there are around 100 of the TERRAform pods being tested and used in gardens throughout France.

PVC Strawberry Planter

PVC Strawberry Planter | Garden Designer | Scoop.it

What are the advantages of this system? The most obvious is the ability to grow many plants in a small space. It’s an interesting way to maximize the production of a small garden, or to grow strawberries on a deck or balcony. 

 

But there are other advantages. Since the plants are off the ground, you’ll be able to grow very clean, very high-quality berries. Disease problems can be minimized with the off-the-ground approach, particularly in a greenhouse where constant airflow is provided.

 

Follow the photo-link to find out how to make your own strawberry tower.

Le printemps est là... enfin presque!!!

 

Votre balcon n'est pas très grand mais vous êtes gourmand... voici un style de présentation "gain de place" à mettre où bon vous semble, mais au soleil! pour des fruits bien mûrs.

 

Très facile à mettre en place dans un tuyau en PVC. 

 

Bonne plantation et surtout très bonne dégustation...
