The Machu Picchu Raised Garden Bed is a magnificent Raised Garden Bed that adds terrific eye-appeal and an immense growing space to any garden. Multiple inter-connected deep raised beds set in a 10'x10' total square feet geometric pattern. With a total growing area of 52 square feet it is the perfect unique raised garden bed. Food-grade safe. No tools required.
Locate this raised bed in the sunniest spot as the main focus of your yard. It is not only beautifully impressive but also a highly effective use of space. It has sufficient depth to grow underground veggies like carrots, radishes and turnips, artichoke, arugula, asparagus, lettuce, pole beans, beets, carrots and cabbage plus herbs as well as tall plants like tomatoes, sunflowers and with the right amount of sun (ideally six or more hours a day), blueberries, strawberries, or raspberries.
For easier harvesting, leave space around the the beds so you can reach your garden from all directions to make it super-easy to run out and pick veggies for a salad. A solid choice for durability and function. Tool-free snap-lock joints make it simple to install.
Your kit comes with everything you need except the soil and plants. Stacking brackets allow you to install subsequent layers to your garden just by inserting the stakes into the brackets below. Our patented snap-lock brackets simply slide onto each end of a board and fasten securely with snap-lock buttons. Brackets pivot 270 degrees, allowing endless design options.
The insulating open-channel boards trap air, providing insulation to your soil. Keeps soil warmer in the Spring and Fall, and cooler in the Summer, so you can grow for an extended period.
As your garden needs and expertise grow you can add on to your modular raised bed at any time by purchasing additional Frame It All tool-free kits to extend your garden in height and dimension.
Include a Frame It All Worm Box to this deep raised bed to create a composter. By adding chopped leaves, grass clippings, semi-rotted compost and mealtime left-overs to the soil, you will encourage earthworms to take up residence, be active and thrive.
Did you know? You can easily get great results from your raised garden with the 'Square Foot Gardening’ technique, that visualizes the garden bed in square foot sections with a different plant in each. – There are many publications on this topic. A 2' x 2’ garden bed could contain 4 or more different plants.
The Frame It All system of modular raised garden beds, borders, sandboxes and accessories was designed by our founder, Anthony Topping. As a professional landscape designer who spent many years creating high-end gardens in the Tri-State New York area, he felt there had to be a way to give homeowners the ability to easily create quality landscaping features and gardens for much less than paying a professional.
Here’s a note from Anthony on why he designed this product:
"Historic and grand Machu Picchu; declared a Peruvian Historic Sanctuary in 1981 was built by the Incas around 1450 in Southern Peru, on an 8,000 feet high mountain ridge. I was captivated by this awe-inspiring place and designed my magnificent Machu Picchu multi-terraced raised garden bed in its honor. You can easily increase the size of your raised garden bed by adding additional kits which can stack and connect to expand your garden over time? It’s so easy. No need to move soil – just stack onto your raised garden and fill with more soil or, to increase the length swing out one side board and add additional boards.” – Anthony
