Our stands and wheeled trolleys are a recent invention from the Vegepod team (see our blog 2017: Vegepod In Review for the other inventions we cooked up in 2017). But what exactly are the stands and trolleys good for? Why should you care or buy one for that matter? ;) We thought it was high time to discuss the stands features so you guys can decide what they’re even good for! Here are the top 7 useful benefits you can get out of a Vegepod stand or wheeled trolley.
1. At Waist Height
Let’s get the first and most obvious feature out of the way. Our stands mean the Vegepod is an elevated raised garden bed. Providing a height of 80 cm aka waist height, the stand is perfect for anyone who loves to garden but can’t or doesn't want to bend down. Creating easily reachable gardening, the stands are great for the elderly, people in wheelchairs, and anyone else who has knee or back issues. Unlike traditional timber or corrugated iron raised garden beds, the Vegepod is not set in the ground, so it truly is an elevated garden bed.
2. A Sun Follower
There are so many things you can do with our wheeled trollies! Great for anyone who needs a bit of flexibility in their lives, the wheeled stands mean those who don’t get a lot of sunlight at certain times of the day e.g. apartment dwellers, can just move the Vegepod from one side of their balcony to the other as the sun moves.
3. Hides From Rain
Similarly, if there’s too much rain going on during winter time, the wheeled stand means you can quickly take the Vegepod undercover and out of the rain. This is a surprisingly important task at times. Too much watering can be even worse than under-watering your plants and the Vegepod is so water efficient, you may find yourself needing to move it.
4. Parks Conveniently
The lockable castor wheels of the wheeled stand mean it can be easily parked anywhere you choose. For those who don’t have a lot of backyard space, we’ve even seen people parking their Vegepods down the sides of sloped driveways. Like we said, perfect for flexible living situations!
5. Moves Easily
Speaking of living situations, easily wheel your Vegepod on the back of a moving truck when changing apartments or houses - no mess no fuss!
6. Extra Storage
Again, if you’re an apartment dweller, the Vegepod stand is perfect. Save space by using underneath the stand for extra storage. Put fertiliser, extra potting mix or really anything you fancy down there. Keep it economical or ‘minimalist’ as they say.
7. They're Sturdy
Our stands are made from galvanised powder-coated steel with stainless steel bolts - this means no rust AND and a strong, reliable elevation. The large stand can hold over 400kg!
That’s about it! The Vegepod wheeled trolley and raised bed garden stands are perfect for those who need a bit of flexibility. The wheeled trolley lets you move the Pod around, while the stand creates an elevated garden bed with storage space underneath.
