Do I have to dig before installing my MinifarmBox™?

You can install your MinifarmBox™ on any flat surface that gets 6-8 hours of sunshine. You can place it in your garden, patio, walkway, deck, or lawn. Even in your driveway. However, if the surface is not flat, you should level it first before installing.

Can I put my MinifarmBox™ on Concrete or stone?

Yes you can install a MinifarmBox™ on most hard surfaces. However we recommend making it three boards high on cement or stone surfaces, because these surfaces get very hot in the summer and will dry your soil out very fast. It’s also a good idea to place a layer of landscape cloth over the hard surface before you fill with soil. This will prevent staining and leeching of soil.

Can I put my MinifarmBox™ on Grass?

Yes! We encourage people to replace their water guzzling lawns with edible yards. You can even get a rebate for removing your lawn from the LADWP. You can cover the base area with recycled cardboard to smother grass and weeds or just scrape away the surface grass before you fill with soil. You do not need to remove the roots completely. Loosen the ambient soil with a fork before you fill.

How long does it take to assemble a MinifarmBox™

You can assemble a MinifarmBox™ in less than 10 minutes. Apart from a hammer to tap the rods down, there are no tools required and all the parts come ready for assembly.

Are custom sizes available?

Yes, contact us with your requirements. We also offer discounts on multiple purchases. We even make a rolling patio box.

Will my existing sprinkler system work for watering my MinifarmBox™?

Your sprinkler system will most likely not provide enough water for your MinifarmBox™, so you will need to water it separately. We supply customized drip irrigation systems that fit snugly into each 4×4 box and attach to a regular garden hose or can be connected to your sprinkler system. Drip irrigation is the most efficient and economical way to water your plants. Sprinkler watering is wasteful as much of the water never gets beyond the surface and evaporates quickly in hot weather.

What if I have Gophers or Moles?

Put a 4×4 screen of chicken wire on the bottom of your MinifarmBox™ before filling the box with soil. This will prevent unwanted diners from coming up from underneath.

Can I make my MinifarmBox™ taller or longer?

MinifarmBox™ is modular. Our extender kits make it easy to expand the size of a basic 4x4x11” MinifarmBox™ – making it as high or as long as you want.
