PATIO_GARDEN-02 600Spring is near. If you are thinking about going beyond last year's efforts of purchasing CSA boxes and farmers market produce to finally start that back-door or balcony garden, now is the time to consider.

Scout Regalia, a Los Angeles-based multitasking design practice in Echo Park, has a few options to kick-start your garden with do-it-yourself or assembled garden kits and reusable garden tags.

The company, established in 2006 by Benjamin Luddy and Makoto Mizutani, enhances everyday living with designs that correspond with space, furniture, home products and sustainability. The design firm participated in HDTS 2011 at High Desert Test Sites last October in Pioneertown.

Also featured on Scout Regalia's website is "cutsheet project," a series of instruction sheets created to help with at home projects such as the do-it-yourself planting table.

The garden kits range from $95 to $200. Scoutregalia.com.
