The biggest reason most gardens fail... is water.

LifeSpace Gardens overcome this challenge by emulating the water tables found in all the most abundant natural environments. This technique is know as sub-irrigation and creates the ideal growing conditions for long term sustainability, convenience and growing success.

  • Save more than 80% of the water consumed by traditional techniques

  • Reduce maintenance from daily to weekly - or less

  • Improve yields and grow healthier plants

    Our patented food safe Self-Watering System will also:

    • Sequester Rain Water

    • Help you overcome droughts

    • Remove the guess work around watering

    • Eliminate mess and offer drainage control

    • Add 2-3x the lifespan to you garden by protecting it from rot




    LifeSpace Wood Finishes

    LifeSpace Gardens Guarantee

    Your LifeSpace Garden is crafted out of Western Red Cedar, harvested from the forests of British Columbia. The natural characteristics and high oil content of this beautiful wood makes it ideal to use outside and withstand the seasonal elements. Cedar, like all natural materials, will season uniquely and accrue it own natural patina and character over time. Small cracks, silvering, knot holes and weathering are all part of this natural process. However, with proper care, your garden can last a lifetime.

    The LifeSpace Guarantee takes this natural process to mind. The wood will age, but the craftsmanship will remain. We guarantee the structural integrity of your LifeSpace Garden & the functioning of your GardenWell sub-irrigation system.

    how do i grow beans?

    Most beans don’t like cold weather. Don’t grow beans in soil that is colder than 15 C (60 F).  Beans that have been grown in cool soil will germinate slowly and they are more prone to disease later in life.  

    Sow bean seeds 1 inch deep and 4 inches apart, or 1 inch deep and 9 per square foot. The seeds will sprout in 5-10 days. When the beans have grown and it's time to harvest, make sure to harvest often as beans become less productive as summer wears on.  

    If you want a continuous harvest, plant a new square foot of different bush varieties every two weeks all summer long.

    Harvest beans by breaking or cutting each stem with 2 hands, be sure not to pull the plant or you might accidentally rip the entire plant from the ground. The best beans are the small and tender ones, so pick those and try not to let the beans get too big because they will lose their flavour. Regularly harvesting your beans will also produce great tasting pods.

    Helpful Tips and Tricks

    If you notice your bush beans starting to get a little floppy and spread all over the container, you can run string around the beans, bundling them in groups to help provide structure and to keep them in their container


    Beans are a good source of iron, calcium, vitamin A & C, manganese, phosphorus, folate, riboflavin, thiamin, niacin, copper and protein. 

    Preparing and using

    If you don’t plan on using your beans right away, wash them and place in the fridge. Beans don’t store well, so they need to be used quickly after you pick them.  Beans can be eaten raw or you can steam, boil, or stir fry them. If you have too many beans to eat all at once, try canning them!
