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. Raised to 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. Raised to 80 cm or waist height the stands are perfect for anyone who loves to garden but can’t or don’t want to get down. Easily reachable 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 can truly be elevated as high or as low as you wish.
2. A Sun Follower
There are so many more things you can do with the wheeled trolley. 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, season to season.
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 mean the stand is 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 stainless steel, this mean no rust AND and a strong and reliable result. The large stand holds over 50kg!
That’s about it! The Vegepod wheeled trolley or raised garden bed stand is perfect for those who need to be flexible with their Vegepod, such as changing its height or position now and then.
