Raised Barrel Gardens
It is getting to the time of year to start thinking about that garden! What do you want to grow and how are you going to do it? I have a great idea for you! A raised garden. All your project needs is a small area of your backyard and a little time from you on a weekend! All the parts and pieces for the stands are available at your local hardware store! The Barrel Company has an excess of the 55 gallon plastic drums. Just ask for the Garden Special! The barrels are used, food grade, rinsed and ready for use! $19.99 for each drum while supplies last!
Below are two examples of stands that can be built to support the barrels for a garden!
There are many self help video’s on YouTube that can help you through the construction and give you ideas!
And here are some finished gardens!
I have a friend (yes one) who has a business in Las Vegas that makes a great product just for planting. Her name is Patti and her company is Wonder Soil! It is a coconut coir product she enhances to grow plants like you will not believe! It is a water conserving product. She sells to the public! Give her a call and ask for her help! She is really knowledgeable about growing just about anything! I have no idea how much of her product to blend with your favorite planting mix, just call them and ask! They are a friendly bunch. Always helpful and courteous! Her company produces many products for all types of plants.
OK here is my official plug for her company!
Wonder Soil, 6355 Windy Road #1 Las Vegas NV 89119 (702) 360-5800
I have used her product to grow my tomatoes and they are the most flavorful beefsteaks ever!
Ok so much for my plug for Patti! Please come by and see Sandy or myself for the Garden Special!
