We have put together a carefully structured system of key elements required for the growth of vegetables, herbs and other food sources which includes: raised beds, balanced soil, irrigation control, and plant selection. With a wide range of services that suit your every need and requirement, our team has the know-how and expertise to get what you need done "ripe".
We have compiled the best materials for constructing a durable and appealing raised bed that will serve not only as the containment for your soil, but as a lasting addition to the value of your home. The beds provide drainage and control of the soil type and are hand built from non-treated western red cedar. Positioned carefully they achieve the best conditions from your property, as well as afford easy access for maintenance and harvesting.
We recommend sizing no more than 4' wide for open areas and 3' wide for beds along a fence or structure.

Raised Cedar Beds
Organic Soil Mix
Soil composition is the lifeblood of the garden and will consist of all the elements necessary for your plants to thrive. A balanced pH, added trace minerals, organic and mineral matter allow for peak nutrition and the maximum yield of your crop. We gather from many sources to provide a perfect medium that acts as a super-charged foundation for growing wonderful, healthy food.
4x4 - starting at $140
4x8 - starting at $260
3x9 - starting at $230
3x12 - starting at $300
Mulching is equally important to protect the biological life inside your soil. Sunlight and wind will destroy the soil and allow weeds to grow and deplete the nutrients and moisture there. We use a blend of pecan shells, pine bark and native wood chips to mimic the forest effect and provide a unique cover for your soil.
Starting at $60
We also offer sod removal and landscape mulching around your bed area for easy maintenance and aesthetics. Talk to us about decomposed granite walkways and borders!
A typical lawn uses 66% more water than a mid-size garden. Lawns can also waste about 50% of this water due to misdirection and over spray. However, nearly 100% of drip irrigation hits its intended mark. An installed drip system, filter screen and digital timer gives you peace of mind and makes manual watering of your garden virtually non-existent.
