Guide Review - Easy Garden Review
When I first saw the easy garden, I yawned. I thought, been there, done that - yet another silly gizmo, designed to get people to spend their cash on something they really don't need. Besides, a garden that looks like a folding chair just didn't appeal to me.
After I used the Easy Garden, I became a fan. I found out that I really like gardening without bending down. Having your plants at waist level is kind of a revelation. It's easier to plant, water, weed and just see exactly what is going on with each plant. Not having to bend down, no matter what your age or mobility, is a total treat. And I have even embraced the garden gone camping look of the thing. I now think it's kind of cool looking.
I was also pleasantly surprised by how much soil the Easy Garden holds a full two feet of potting soil. The Instant Garden is deep enough depth to plant many different types of vegetables, though I wouldn't grow anything that gets too tall, like a full-sized tomato. When I saw the set up, I was concerned that one hole wouldn't provide sufficient drainage, but it seems to work beautifully.
The Instant Garden is almost as simple to set up as the folding chair it was modeled after, though I did need help getting the stabilizing pins in. Once set up and filled with soil, the garden is very sturdy and stable. No worries about the wind blowing it over.
Another asset of this system is that at the end of the season, you simply wash it off, and fold it up for storage. I also really like that this was designed to be usable by mobility impaired people or those gardening from a wheelchair.
I am really impressed by the Instant Garden and would recommend it to anyone who is either unable or just plain sick of bending down.
