Double height small pine kit bed
No food miles
The issue of food miles is rarely out of the papers these days and rightly so. It’s a fact that in the future we are going to have to cut down on the amount of carbon dioxide that we emit into the atmosphere and part of this will be in the reduction of food miles. By growing your own vegetables you can, in a small way, start contributing to the solution.
An HGR bed and cover system will enable you to get the best results possible without using pesticides. With our polytunnels it is possible to cultivate certain crops throughout the year and make a much earlier start to the main growing season, resulting in less reliance on imported produce from far-flung places. The irrigation system that can be built into each bed is designed so that it can run off a very low head of water making it ideal for use with harvested rainwater from a water butt.
At HGR we also pride ourselves on the longevity of our products. You won’t be throwing rotten planks of wood away and replacing them after a couple of seasons. We fully expect our pine kit beds to last for up to fifteen years, our premium oak kit beds double that and our installed azobe beds (made from untreated, reclaimed, recycled timbers) to last a lifetime.
