Small Space? Use a Raised Bed Planter

Dec 02, 2019


With an increasing amount of urban gardeners, who are usually operating with limited space at their disposal, the use of raised bed planters is a great option for growing healthy plants and vegetables.

Raised beds take very little space and can be built right over a concrete patio. You never have to deal with poor soil, because you control what goes in the bed. And because raised beds don’t require planting in rows, you’ll be able to fit more plants in than you would in a traditional garden.

Your participating Co-op offers 6-ft. or 8-ft. oval or 3-ft. round raised bed planters from Tarter Farm and Ranch Equipment. Made of galvanized steel, Tarter raised bed planters are lightweight yet durable and last longer than wooden planters. And the rounded edges on each planter ensure safety for all plants, soils, pets, and people.

Whether you’re in the city or the country, show off your green thumb with a Tarter raised bed planter. The friendly staff at your local Co-op will be glad to assist in selecting the planter that’s right for you, and they can help with all your other gardening needs, too!
