We have been perfecting our full Wicking bed system in our whole and half bins over the past 6 years, wicking systems are becoming more popular every year but there are some costly pit falls if you are doing it DIY with water leaks being the main issue.(once this happens you just have a standard raised garden bed or you have to empty and start again)
You can purchase our systems with confidence, we have 4 layers of protection to ensure there are no issues with leaks and they are still working as intended for many seasons to come.

A bit about Painted Bins (Capped)
Painting the external of your bin provides an additional level of protection from the elements. (and we think it looks cool!)
By Capping and lining a plain bin you are protecting and increasing the life of your Veggie Bin by many years, in fact this now our most popular Bin sold.
The capping protects and provides added stability to the Bin (and they look a lot more stylish) while the heavy duty liner is specifically designed to custom fit and are food grade quality.
