4' x 8' Grassroots Living Soil Fabric Raised Bed

+ Trellis Fittings

+ Midrange BluSoak Kit

4’ x 8’ x 1.5’ Living Soil Raised Bed:

Living Soil Raised Beds are the ideal way to maximize soil volume for your surface area.

This living soil raised bed kit is made by Grassroots Fabric pots, and is complete with their moisture-lock plastic lining to ensure moisture makes its way into your bed--no more run-off from hydrophobic soil/media! If you don’t see a size that will work for you, submit a custom order request and we’ll take care of you!

Dimensions: 46″W x 94″‘L x 1.5’H
(Size is slightly smaller to allow the bed to fit inside a 4×8 tray.)

Estimated gallons of soil: 300 gallons

Our raised beds come with PVC fittings. All you’ll need to do is get 1″ PVC to complete the setup. 

These beds generally will hold up 3-5 years in an outdoor setting, or 5-8 years in an indoor setting.


Single Trellis:

This kit comes with additional fittings to build a single trellis to your desired height.

4 x 8 Trellis kit includes:

  • Fabric for raised bed

  • Four 3-way fittings

  • Six 4-way fittings

  • Two 5-way fittings

Assembling your 4 x 8 raised bed + trellis:

Not included:  You will need to purchase the following 1" PVC pipe lengths separately

  • Six 16.75 inch lengths

  • Fourteen 45.5 inch lengths

  • Six equal lengths of your choice for the trellis

This equals 737.5 inches, or rounds up to 62 feet total of 1" PVC pipe before the trellis

Add 6 x (desired trellis height) for total PVC pipe needed


Midrange BluSoak Kit:

This kit provides an easy, fast, and water-saving way to water a 4' by 8' raised bed or garden bed. No timers, batteries, or electricity required! This system utilizes a Blumat carrot (sensor) to automatically water and monitor the moisture levels in your garden soil. BluSoak tape allows for even water distribution throughout. When coupled together with Blumat carrots, BluSoak hose only delivers water to your veggies when they need it, which promotes exponential growth and impressive yields. You can also leave your BluSoak tape under your garden all winter, no problem. Water source needs to be 6-10' above the garden for a gravity system. For a pressure system running off a faucet or garden hose, simply add a Blumat Pressure Reducer.


This Kit Includes:


  • 1 Blumat carrots (5")
  • 1 Blumat Long (9")
  • 2 distribution drippers
  • 2 distribution dripper stakes
  • 2 Blu-Soak Tape Fittings to 3mm
  • 32 feet of BluSoak Drip Tape
  • 8 BluSoak Stakes to hold-down drip tape

What You Might Need (Not included in kit):

  • Connection to your water source (either thru-hull bulkhead fittings for gravity systems, a pressure reducer, or a Blumat pump for larger systems)
  • 8mm Supply tube to connect your water source to your Blumats
  • Additional Hold-Down stakes or 3mm tubing
  • Fittings (tee's, elbows, couplers, etc...) for your custom system

Increase your yields and decrease grow times. Our fully-automatic, self-watering systems save time, water, and nutrients — and still ensure healthier, more potent, and faster-growing crops.
Perfect for landscapers and home gardeners. It is easily installed with a pair of scissors and connects directly to your hose, or rain barrel with the help of the Pressure Reducer or Thru-Hull Bulkhead Fittings.
 
The Tropf Blumat system is great for watering balcony boxes, planters, hanging baskets, and row crops. It fulfills the needs of the plants on an individual basis, regardless of their location, light levels, or plant type. Our systems save your plants from excessive and improper watering. Tropf Blumat systems are ideal for plant groupings that require consistent moisture, such as vegetable gardens, bushes, flower beds, grow bags and greenhouse containers. Not only do your plants receive the right amount of water, slow and consistent dripping ensures that your plants receive warmed water, avoiding shock.

How it Works


The Tropf Blumat self-watering system functions automatically. As the soil dries, a vacuum and hydro-static pressure, coupled with a spring-loaded gating mechanism, pulls water from the main line. When the soil is sufficiently moist, pressures equalize, and the Tropf Blumat automatically stops taking in water.

PLEASE NOTE: This system does not include a water source. See 5-gallon Reservoirs below, sold with or without thru-hulls installed. Or if using your garden hose bib all you need is a Pressure Reducer. Let us know if we can help you select the right products for your custom irrigation system!
