Welcome to EarthBox®
The World’s Most Revolutionary Gardening System!
Acting on the laws of nature, the EarthBox facilitates the movement of nutrients from areas of high concentration to areas of low concentration. When the EarthBox is set up, the fertilizer stripe is placed on top of the potting mix-creating an area of high nutrient concentration. At this time, the potting mix around the roots of the growing plant has no fertilizer. When water is added, the moist potting mix slowly conducts the diluted nutrients down the concentration gradient to the plant roots,which absorb optimal amounts of nutrients at any given time.
The EarthBox’s plastic cover drastically reduces the water evaporation rate and returns condensed water vapor to the potting mix. As the plants draw water from the reservoir, they consume only what they need to stay healthy. Plants cannot be over-watered or under-watered if the reservoir is kept full. The plastic cover also prevents fertilizer from being diluted or washed away by rain.
Many of our customers have come back to us asking for refills, and this year we will have them! We are stocking the Organic Kits and Replant kits!
Fun, Colorful, Shade Sails coming this Spring!
These lively jolts of color can be easily installed to transform any yard into your backyard oasis! Sometimes exterior design calls for subtlety. Sometimes boldness is required. For those latter occasions there are the Coolaroo Shade Sails.
Coolaroo shade sails are not your grandparent’s patio umbrella. They look bolder than that, brightly colored in square and triangle shapes. It’s remarkable how one lone shade sail can lend an outdoor space a contemporary touch. String up a group of shade sails and you can transform a space into something you’d expect to find at a modern art museum.
What you can’t see from the photos is how durable the Coolaroo material is. This isn’t like hanging out a sheet. The shade sails are made for life outdoors. The sail’s nylon edges will not tear or fray. The color of the material will remain bright even when permanently hung outside and exposed to moisture, intense sun and temperature extremes. The D-rings on the corners of the Coolaroo will stay anchored to the included stainless steel poles. And it isn’t just Spot Cool Stuff saying so—Coolaroo products come with a 10 year warranty. If your shade sail becomes damaged the company will replace it for free.
Best of all, the Coolaroo fabric blocks out 90% of the sun’s harmful UV rays while allowing breezes to pass through. So life under a Coolaroo is cool in more ways than one.
NEW EZ COMPOSTER AVAILABLE THIS SPRING!
The art of composting has been around for some time. Most people either have a compost pile or know some one who does. But it’s not just for the savvy, green-thumbed, garden grower anymore. As land-fills fill up, it’s becoming more and more apparent that we can’t afford to just throw away our organic scraps. Over 20 million tons of organic trash is thrown out each year in the US alone.
The best way to cut down this number is by recycling this waste into compost for plants and vegetables. Compost recycling does more than save the scraps from the landfills. You save money on recycling bags, curb side services, and fertilizer/potting soil. So the savings are lucritive for both your wallet and the planet.
Composting typically takes a long time as it needs to be aerated often, but new developments in composting technology have cut composting time down significantly.
Good Ideas has developed a line of composters that optimize composting by maximizing aeration while cutting down on compost maintenance and time spent composting.
