Small Gardens

Gardening season is here and now that the days are so much warmer, it is a great time to get your garden ready for planting! Even if you don’t live on a large property or in a rural area, you can still enjoy all the pleasures and benefits of gardening. Once you start looking into it, you will be amazed at how much you can do in a small space.

If you live in a townhome or simply have a small yard without a lot of extra green space, Greely Sand & Gravel has the perfect garden boxes to get you started. Choose between our 4' x 4' Raised Garden Boxes or our 2' x 3' Raised Garden Planters. Both products are made out of premium wood and will add both aesthetic appeal and functional garden space to your yard. Our 2' x 3' planters can even be placed on your deck or patio to preserve yard area.

Garden boxes and raised planters have many benefits that make them the perfect option for you if you are new to gardening or have limited outdoor space. Besides offering a clearly defined and contained space for your garden, boxes and planters help reduce weed growth, limit the amount of maintenance required, and allow for easier access to your plants, since they are raised off the ground.

Interested in trying your hand at vegetable gardening? Our 4' x 4' Raised Garden Box is an excellent place to start. Made locally at The Woodsource from untreated, natural hemlock, our Raised Garden Box is safe for organic growing and even has an open bottom to allow your plants to grow deep and healthy roots. Paired with our Greely’s Topdressing Soil, which is certified for organic growing, you can rest assured that you are giving your veggies a great and safe headstart!

We recommend starting with at least 12" of Greely’s Topdressing Soil, in order to give your plants the depth and nutrients they need to develop a healthy root system. If you already have a small garden or raised garden box and want to revive it this year, spring is a perfect time to add a few inches of Greely’s Topdressing Soil or Greely’s Mushroom Compost (also certified for organic growing) to your soil. Simply add the new soil on top and blend well using a hand trowel to ensure it is incorporated into the existing soil. Once this is done, you are ready to plant!

Our 2' X 3' Raised Garden Planters are perfect for adding colour and aesthetic appeal to your deck, patio, porch, or yard. Made from beautiful, sturdy cedar, our Raised Garden Planters have an enclosed bottom to keep your deck or patio clean while allowing enough depth for your flowers to flourish. Our Greely’s Topdressing Soil provides all the essential nutrients needed to grow strong, vibrant flowers. Try mixing and matching different varieties and colour schemes when picking your plants to create a beautiful look in your Raised Garden Planter.

Spring is in full swing but it is not too late to add a stunning Raised Garden Planter or a functional Raised Garden Box to your property!
