Scout Regalia's SR Patio Garden box

February 5, 2010 |  6:05 am


When I wrote about Echo Park-based design firm Scout Regalia last week, I focused on its new outdoor table set. A colleague, however, was equally drawn to one of the firm's other designs, so I thought I'd share it here too. It's the SR Patio Garden box.

PATIO_GARDEN-02 Like the hip picnic table, the raised bed is designed with apartment dwellers and small-space gardeners in mind. The 18-by-30-inch box can easily fit on a small patio or balcony.

The box comes fully assembled for $185 or as a DIY kit for $95. The ready-made dimensions were designed to maximize the board-feet of the wood, says co-designer Makoto Mizutani, but you can build one to nearly any specifications.

The box is constructed with Forest Stewardship Council certified redwood and is lined with a textile made of 40% post-industrial recycled material. The kit comes with powder-coated heavy-gauge steel brackets, the drainage textile, hardware and all instructions (but no wood). Plants and soil are not included.
