Earth Box Advantages
The roots of plants in the Earth Box enjoy almost total protection from weeds, burrowing nuisances like moles and gophers, soil-borne pests like cutworms and slugs, and fungi that cause wilts. Moved far enough away from the regular plot, many insects won’t find the foliage, either. The system also requires much less water. The reservoir holds a reserve that won’t leak away from the root zone like regular ground. The cover prevents almost all evaporation. Container gardening, which includes the Earth Box, is also perfect for areas where sun and soil do not meet, like an apartment balcony or a property with lots of trees. And plants can easily move indoors if there’s an unexpected late frost.
