Cascading Keyhole Composting Garden Bed Description

The keyhole garden consists of a raised garden with a unique Compost Tunnel that gobbles up your kitchen scraps and provides constant nutrients to the growing vegetables. This high performance garden bed uses about 80% less water than a traditional garden. Made from rot-proof PVC and stainless steel fasteners. All eco-packaging is fully compostable and is used in the garden at start up to help kick-start the system.

For best composting success use the Brown-Green alternating technique (see our image to the right) as this helps your compost work the best. The composting basket sits at the top of the Cascading Garden and extends to the very bottom, supplying nutrients to each garden bed. Your kitchen waste will be put to good use as it breaks down, feeding your vegetables and flowers with top-notch fertilizer.
