As organic gardeners, the health of your garden soil is very important to us.

What does that have to do with redwood garden beds? You might be surprised to learn, quite a bit.

Not all raised garden beds are created equal. To build the garden of your dreams – that will last for decades into the future –  start with quality redwood lumber.

The Modern Potager Kitchen Garden

The joy of the modern potager is getting to enjoy your garden as soon as the dirt is placed. Using raised garden beds provides the opportunity to start with great soil and begin planting right after installation. In Southern California, it’s important to use long-lasting materials for your beds. Heirloom Potager’s favorite material to build garden beds is from redwood.
