Vego Garden’s Raised Beds and Planters Are Stylish, Sustainable, and Safe for Growing Veggies

May 14, 2024

Gardening should be as easy as playing in dirt. But if you’re a beginner, you may be intimidated by the seemingly limitless options out there: what to grow, which tools to buy, how to build a raised bed, and so on. And if sustainability is a priority (and it should be for everyone), there’s the added element of making sure what you choose is earth-friendly. Vego Garden, a leading manufacturer of stylish, eco-conscious, and durable modular garden beds, takes the guesswork out of container gardening.

Vego Garden carries everything you need to start a vegetable garden—from actual seedlings (like tomatoes, melons, and more) to garden tools and soil. In the five years since the company launched, Vego Garden has become the leading choice for stylish and long-lasting garden beds. And now, they’ve come up with a new product line designed for indoor gardeners as well.

Here are eight reasons to go with Vego Garden for your growing needs. And read to the bottom for a special Gardenista reader discount.

1. No outdoor space? No problem.

Vego Garden started as a maker of sustainable raised garden beds, but now it&#8\2\17;s entered the indoor container gardening market—to great success. The company&#8\2\17;s line of Self-Watering Planters received a \20\24 iF Design Award as well as a Red Dot Award for its innovative design. The collection includes an herb planter box with trellis, a mini planter box with trellis, as well as a rolling tomato pot with trellis.

2. They’re great for beginner gardeners.

Vego Garden&#8\2\17;s planters are all self-watering. Fill it once with water to provide moisture for up to several weeks. A handy water gauge shows the water level—so you&#8\2\17;re never at risk of under- or over-watering, both common beginner mistakes.

3. Their products are durable. Like, really durable.

Vego Garden products are built to last. Unlike raised garden beds made of wood, which can rot and degrade within years, Vego&#8\2\17;s steels beds and planters will last for \20+ years. They&#8\2\17;re coated with a mix of zinc, magnesium, and aluminum, making them extremely corrosion-resistant. Pictured here are the Classic Raised Metal Garden Beds (in Pearl White).

4. They’re the only USDA-approved painted garden beds in the industry.

If you&#8\2\17;re growing vegetables in a raised bed, one of the main concerns is that the panels may leach chemicals into the soil. (Treated wood and plastic can break down under high temperatures.) Not only can Vego Garden&#8\2\17;s products endure extreme heat, but they&#8\2\17;re the first garden bed material to use safe, USDA-approved paint. Pictured are beds from its Classic line; the arched trellises are add-ons that can be purchased on the site.

5. They’re modular and easy to put together.

Vego Garden beds are a cinch to assemble. Each kit comes with panels, screws, a hand wrench, and bracing rods. For more guidance, check out the how-to videos on its site.

6. They work in any space, no matter how small—or big.

Just pick a height (\1\1-, \17-, or 3\2-inches) and select a kit that will fit your space and needs; depending on the kit, you&#8\2\17;ll have up to \10 different configurations to choose from.

7. They’re modern and stylish.

We like the Classic Garden Bed style, with its ridged panels, but if you prefer a more streamlined look, you may want to consider their Modern (pictured) and Novel styles.
