The Benefits of Container Gardening

on August 13, 2015

Often, we hear from gardeners who have had success throughout the years with their traditional in-ground garden who now want something simpler and more manageable – yet something that will still produce the same yield. For many people it can be very appealing to grow in containers simply because there are no weeds! As well as this, many people may want to implement a deck for an aesthetically appealing look, but worry that they can’t because it’ll disrupt their plants. No need to worry now; shop for some composite decking to your heart’s content now that you have the option of planting with containers! Depending on what style you get, containers can be a huge asset to your garden design, with beautiful pots laid out on your deck. It is so much less hassle and you can grow beautiful greenery using Essential Gardening Tools. These gardening tools will ensure that the plants are healthy and produced in a sustainable way. But there is more to GreenStalk or container gardening in general for that matter than just ease-of-use. If you looking for somewhere to store your equipment, invest in one of these cheap sheds of you’re just starting out!

You can control what goes in it. When a crop isn’t growing like it should, it is easy to do a quick Google search to find out what the problem is and fix it. Whether it is the pH level or inconsistent watering – you know exactly what has been going on!

You can move it. This is so simple, but a huge bonus to growing in containers! It can be detrimental to the growth of a plant if it requires full sun yet the planter is in the shade. With container gardening, it’s so easy just to move the planter instead of trying to dig it up and find another spot in the garden.

There’s no weeds (our favorite reason to love container gardening!). We do most of our GreenStalk testing in our parking lot at our office. We have dozens of GreenStalks planted with several different varieties of vegetables and we are so thankful that we don’t have to pull a single weed. If we did, we would have no time to do anything else!

You can grow vertical. With a raised bed, you have one level of garden. With a GreenStalk you have at least 3 levels of gardening. Container gardening just makes sense to get the most out of every growing season.

It’s beautiful. Gardening isn’t just all about getting the highest yield for your efforts, growing the most delicious vegetables, or even knowing where your food comes from. Sometimes you just want to look out at your garden, balcony, or patio and see something beautiful. That’s where container gardening comes in. Have planters of different heights filled with interesting looking flowers and plants and you’ve got yourself a showcase!

It’s low-maintenance. We don’t think gardening should be stressful or take an abundance of time if it doesn’t have to. With GreenStalk, you set the system up, water, and harvest. There’s no tilling the soil, adding soil amendments, or weeding to deal with. They’re also super easy to store when not in use, just look at EasyShed garden sheds for storage solutions.

That’s our list for why we choose to grow our garden in GreenStalk planters and even a few reasons why the GreenStalk was created in the first place.

    When you move from a house on an acre of land to an RV park. And your fingers are just itching to get into some dirt and grow something but you can’t dig up the park lawn! Enter: Growstalk vertical garden! The thought has made me calm back down and know I will be satisfied soon and I can still keep reading the garden magazines that come in the mail instead of sadly tossing them out!
