If you’ve been putting off installing a raised garden bed to grow your own fruits and vegetables, there is now no excuse to stall any longer. Scout Regalia in LA has put together a stylish hardware kit complete with instructions; you supply the wood, plants, and labor. Consider using reclaimed or locally harvested wood for your garden bed; Scout Regalia offers already-assembled beds made with wood certified by the Forest Stewardship Council.
The Raised Garden Kit ($85) will stake into your existing soil.
The Patio Garden Kit ($95) is freestanding on your deck or patio. For soil drainage, the kit includes a drainage textile made of 40 percent post-industrial recycled content.
Both gardens can be assembled in variable dimensions, making them ideal for urban settings with soil and space constraints.
