What is Durable Greenbed? Composite Raised Garden Beds
In short: Made with nothing but 85% mineralized wood and 15% cement, Durable GreenBeds (based on the the Faswall® green building system) is among the most environment-friendly and healthy building materials available.
Non- Toxic Woodchip Mineralization
The main component of the GreenBed is a unique material called Faswall, a woodchip/Portland cement composite material invented in Europe and used to build high-performance, sustainable buildings. This woodchip-cement block was invented in Europe in the 1940’s for building high performance, sustainable homes and commercial buildings. It is rot-free and non toxic due to the unique mineralization process of the wood fiber.
GreenBed wallpanels are made from this same remarkable rot-free and non-toxic material.
Better than the rest:
Other materials used for gardening beds such as wooden panels, plastic boards, cement blocks, railroad ties, and pressure-treated wood have either short life, and/or toxicity issues.
Organic. Really. And Recycled.
Faswall® wall construction materials are made entirely of organic and earthen materials: 85% mineralized wood chips from recycled wood and 15% Portland cement and slag cement — nothing else. The wood content of Faswall® block is 100% clean recycled pallets.
Durable GreenBed: The Only Raised Garden Bed You’ll Need
The mineralized wood product used to manufacture Faswall is also used to create Durable GreenBed, which are raised bed garden kits for home gardeners. The beds are sturdy and are rot resistant – for that reason, they last four times as long as traditional wood beds. The product contains a high percentage of recycled materials, all of which are nontoxic, meaning they will never release harmful chemicals into the garden. GreenBeds are also affordable, attractive, and come in easy-to-assemble kits that even the novice DIYer can put together themselves.
