I often get asked questions about different custom sizes for various gardens. Some of these gardens are so unique because they are often placed on various styled rooftops, patios, side of houses, and along fences. So, to give you an idea for your own special garden, I have taken two of my most popular planters, the Portable Elevated Planter and I placed them in various orientations to help you design your garden. After all, they say that a picture is worth a thousand words.

Common size request include: 2×6, 4×6, 6×6, 2×12, 4×12, etc…

Well, the 2×6 is simple… You just need one Jumbo Portable Elevated Planter. Done!

The 4×6 requires two planters… This one is simple too. Done! But with two planters, you can split them apart to have access to all your fruits and vegetables. Why risk your back. Create a simple passage way between the planters and grow similar or different plants. You can also create intricate patterns and designs, such an an L-shape.

Well, you get the idea… For a 6×6, you would need three planters and so on. Lastly, let me show you the 2×12, which also requires two planters. Simple! Done!

Note: The 4×12 would require four planters. These shapes can also be done with the Jumbo Portable Elevated Planter.

Living Green Planters – Controlling Pests In Your Organic Garden

The best formula that I have found to control pests is using Vegetable oil.  Below, I have included a few videos that explain the process. Please note that other oils are also great pest controls, such as Canola Oil, some may work for you and some may not.

In this video, they use a fancy trap, but a simple container with your vegetable oil can work to attract the earwig bugs.

Best Solution:
You take the bottom of the simple carton for the container of oil. You do need to cut it and make it a little house, but it works.

Green Onions Grown On Jumbo Portable Elevated Planters

I recently harvested my Organic Green Onions from my Jumbo Portable Elevated Planter, which essentially is a raised bed with wheels designed so that you don’t mess up your back. The green onions looked amazing. I didn’t clean them up for the photo, I just pulled them out and took the following pictures.

Massive Three Jumbo Portable Elevated Planter, Design Two installation by Living Green Planters

There is nothing like creating an organic sub-urban farm in this concrete jungle that we live in. Especially when you are designing your garden to grow food and create a relaxing environment. I love getting large orders, such as a full installation of three Jumbo Portable Planters, Design Two.

111215LGP_JumboPlanterInstallation_029.JPG

The order was made by a client that is tired of spending hundreds of dollars every time they went shopping for organic vegetables and organic herbs. I, myself used to spend about $140 dollars every single week getting organic tomatoes, organic cucumbers, organic potatoes, organic carrots, organic radishes, organic beets, organic onions, organic bell peppers, organic strawberries, organic lettuce, organic green peas and organic herbs such as cilantro, chives, and oregano. Now, I practically have a planter for every vegetables.

111215LGP_JumboPlanterInstallation_038.JPG

The installation happened on a patio of a penthouse suite on the top floor of the building. The hardest part was getting the planters and the soil and the rocks, and the manure, and all the tools up a little elevator. I had to make four trips up and down the elevator, then I had to climb down some stairs with everything. After all that, I finally did the installation.

111215LGP_JumboPlanterInstallation_035.JPG

It all started by placing the planters on their proposed location. I eventually changed that location to improve the sun exposure of the planters. The plants are growing fast and growing food, which is the most important part of getting these planters installed. Let me design an organic urban / sub-urban farm for you.
