Easy Gardens by John uses the Square Foot Gardening method created by Mel Bartholomew  so that you can have a beautiful, bountiful  vegetable garden without the hard work and  effort.


We provide everything that you need to get a vegetable garden right at your home. We deliver the raised bed, set it up (either in the ground or raised above the ground), provide the soil mix (Mel’s mix), and assist in planting the vegetables that you want to grow. All this in about 1-2 hours.

It’s a great way to get your children involved in the many benefits of vegetable gardening.

No yard or space?, this is great for a deck or patio, apartments and townhomes.

Raised garden is great if you have a hard time bending or kneeling. It is also great for those in wheel chairs or for those who cannot stand for extended periods of time because you can sit and garden.
