In Pursuit of Building the Perfect Garden

Wood Material

Most of our work is crafted from western red and yellow cedar. The natural strength and self-protective properties of cedar helps provide a quality product that is well worth the time that goes into carefully hand-crafting each garden. We respect the trees we source and build our boxes to last as long as the tree took to grow them.

Osmo Stain

A natural and environmentally friendly product for wood finishing, and one of our few non-local components - we chose to use this imported stain from Germany, as it is made from rapidly renewable, natural vegetable oils that penetrate deeply into the wood, keeping it elastic and healthy, while preventing drying. The wood is allowed to breathe which means it is naturally protected, moisture can evaporate whilst the surface is very water resistant - water tightly beads on the surface.

Waterproof Food Safe Garden Liner

Waterproof FS Liner

Each LifeSpace garden contains an intricately folded FS Liner within that protects the garden from inside out. The Food Safe material made from virgin polypropylene functions as a barrier to contain water hidden in the reservoir while also protecting the cedar wood from moisture and soil, thus further preventing rot and increasing the longevity in each garden.

LifeSpace GardenWell : WaterStem

WaterStem & Float Gauge

The WaterStem creates a direct path for watering into the reservoir of each LifeSpace garden, so you never have to deal with messy top watering. Sliding into the WaterStem is the FloatGauge; the FloatGauge lets you easily monitor the reservoir level by tapping the stick to check buoyancy and remove any guesswork.

GardenWell Insert

GardenWell

Each 1’ X 1’ Well insert snaps together to form a separation between the water reservoir below and soil above. The patented GardenWell insert is made from food-safe polypropylene and functions as a gateway to wick the water up from the reservoir and into the soil via a contact point at each square foot - this happens via capillary action.
