The Eden Raised Garden Table by Riverstone (RGT-23) is the Ideal Vegetable & Herb Growing system. The unit blends into all environments nicely and can be stained or painted to match any exterior setting including your porch or deck. The elevated growing surface and covering system allow it to accomplish things a standard garden cannot, similar to a greenhouse. With this system, the soil can be weed free, with no slugs or snails, grubs or weeds with no need for chemical fertilizers or pesticides. Possibly the best feature is gardening while sitting on a stool or bench. The OPTIONAL UV protected covering (RGT-T23) with protective mesh netting to keep insects and rodent out, trap the sun's warmth while allowing air to flow within the garden. This is a great option for your garden, which will extend your growing season as well as protect your crops from too much rain, wind, pets and any other animal roaming nearby.
