About Us

Our Vision

We dream of a future where there can be a garden on every balcony, in every yard, on all communal rooftops and throughout our shared spaces - A day when communities will once again come together around growing and sharing food.  

Our Story

We started building gardens because we saw a need for a system that would allow people to succeed at growing truly organic produce, while fitting into their busy lifestyles.  

We wanted to ensure our communities would have gardening success, while bypassing the time demands of constant watering by creating the most efficient sub-irrigation system possible. Moreover, we know in our changing climate how important it is to value and conserve water--so we developed a system that wastes as little water as possible.

Our ethos has built Lifespace Gardens and LifeSpace Projects from the ground up. It all started in 2012 when LifeSpace co-founders Wesley Hooper and Cooper Pantages realized how a smart irrigation innovation could add health to modern urban living. Their passion for gardening and sustainable design lead to an efficient sub-irrigation system, the first GardenWell. Both skilled carpenters, Wes and Coop built their company using local, sustainable materials, and thoughtful, ergonomic design to create quality garden products.

Our self-watering gardens are crafted with style - to look good all season long. Custom-milled western cedar, Food Safe materials, and innovative sub-irrigation design ensures that your LifeSpace Garden will stand the test of time, and help you and your family grow truly organic vegetables and herbs efficiently, no matter how small the space.
