Roll Out The Garden

Updated on May 24, 2013

roll out the garden

Roll out the garden. What could be simpler. Buy the product of your choice, herbs or flowers for example, or both, pick the spot where you want your garden to be and then roll it out, add water and your garden is ready.

Now, I do see some advantages to this. For one, people who have moved into a new place where there is no existing garden, often do not have the time to put in a garden, the first year, even though this may only take a few hours on a sunny late Spring morning.

It could be July when they move and perhaps a bit late in the season to start preparing a garden bed and so on. They can purchase the garden rolls of their choice and roll it out; water and wait or rather go about the other chores necessary when you move into a new home.

The ads claim the gardens are made from 100 per cent biodegradable material which is reassuring.

A second use I can see for roll out gardens is to add curb appeal to a property that is for sale. The roll out gardens work in containers and window boxes so there are a number of ways they can be used too enhance prospective buyers’ first impression of your property. Their easy to install nature leaves you free to concentrate on the house interior, assuming, of course, the exterior has been painted and all is in good repair.

This style of garden may also appeal to people with a busy schedule but who enjoy flowers or want fresh herbs for cooking; in addition, anyone who finds it difficult to do the work that putting in a garden bed can entail may also appreciate the apparent ease of installation this product offers.

The fact that many if not most of the flowers are annuals and not perennials is both a positive and a negative. The positive is you can change the look of your each year, simply by buying a different garden roll or rolls, you can add the garden, simply by setting out another roll, rather than creating a new garden bed.

The negative is you do have to put a new roll or rolls in each year but they are not expensive and the ease of installation may offset this as long the rolls perform as they are supposed to perform.

All-in-all I am curious enough about this product to give it a try next spring in a bright sunny corner of the garden, where a brightly coloured flower garden would be most welcome.

    Another great hub on gardening as usual. A friend of mine used one a couple of years ago and some of the flowers sprang up again this year.
