Major Components Consist Of:
The metal frame is made of EMT conduit, specifically bent into configurations that provide an upper and lower rail separated by vertical posts. The pieces are connected with specially designed PVC tees (provided) that are firmed up with screws (provided). A power screwdriver is needed to drill in these screws through the PVC and filler and into the metal conduit. A rubber mallet, padded hammer, or board is also needed to tap some of the curved pieces into place. In our experiments, it normally took about 20-30 minutes to piece together. This part of the unit can be built indoors and then rolled or carried to the garden location.
Original kit: The frame measures approximately six feet in diameter with a wedge (part of the keyhole) indented inward. Suggested height is just under 29-inches in height when panels are added.
Mini kit: The PVC tees are already mounted on the vertical posts. The frame measures approximately 42 inches in diameter and is a circular shape. Suggested height, when panels are added, is just under 29 inches. According to our calculations, this raised-bed garden kit is ADA compliant.
Original kit: There are 12 ridged panels that measure in height 28.5″ (approx.). Holes in the siding are pre-drilled at factory for use in attaching nylon ties to the metal frame or to adjoining siding panels. The panels slightly overlap as they are assembled, with the ridges running vertically. With two people connecting and securing the panels, it normally takes us about 35 minutes to put together. With one person, it would take slightly longer.
Mini kit: There are six ridged panels that measure just under 29″ in height. Holes in the siding are pre-drilled at the manufacturing plant for use in attaching nylon ties to the metal frame or to adjoining siding panels. The panels slightly overlap as they are assembled, with the ridges running vertically.
Original kit: Inside the keyhole garden sits a vertical 1 ft. wide (approx.) wire mesh cage that extends several inches above the height of the garden.
Mini kit: Inside the keyhole garden sits a vertical 8″ wide (approx.) wire mesh cage (cylinder) that extends several inches above the height of the garden.
