Here is a short introduction to My Kbun garden beds, pots and planters :
THE MATERIAL… all of our garden beds and planters are made either from bamboo, terracotta or wood.
THE SIZE… from big to small, we have it all! Our bamboo hanging, free standing and vertical pots as well as a variety of the terracotta planters are all a great fit for patios and balconies. Some are ready to use as they are, others can be hung with the rope or attached to the wall with mounting brackets. Some garden beds are easy to set up without any tools and others are easily assembled with basic tools. It can be a DIY set up, otherwise our team will be happy to do it for you. Vertical garden bed assemblage and taller hedge raised beds are perfect against the house or boundary walls to create stunning border gardens along a perimeter of your lawn or driveway or to create a visual separation between different areas of your garden. Most importantly, My Kbun garden beds can be for gardens of many shapes and sizes!
THE TYPE…you can choose between pots, planters, free standing or hanging/mounted types of planters, raised, terraced and vertical garden beds.
THE PURPOSE… smaller bamboo planters and terracotta pots are perfect for growing leafy greens and microgreens if you like to eat your veggies very fresh, young and tender. They are also great for mini cactuses and succulents or smaller decorative plants. Vertical and hedge garden beds are taller and with the right soil mix ideal for growing all the Mediterranean herbs. Of course, they can also be used for growing vegetables, especially those with deeper roots like tomatoes or for ornamental plants and flowers. Raised and terraced garden beds are great for growing vegetables, providing that you choose the right depth and size. The pyramid garden is perfect for growing culinary herbs with different sun and humidity needs

MANY SHAPES AND SIZES
All of our garden beds can be assembled in many combinations of length and width. Bamboo raised beds have a fixed height. Some wooden garden beds have a fixed height; the frames of other types can be stacked to whatever height you desire. Terraced garden beds are the most versatile, created by stacking the frames of same width and different lengths, which results in various depths within one garden bed. Plants have different soil depth needs to develop a healthy root system and with this solution they can all be grown in the same garden bed. With wooden frames in our offer you can also create L shaped or U shaped (keyhole) garden beds of many sizes. Options are almost limitless!
EASY UP, EASY DOWN
My Kbun garden beds can be a good option for home gardeners who can’t or don’t want to make permanent changes to the property. Garden beds in our offer are aesthetic, practical and can be temporary if you wish so. They can be placed directly on dirt, lawn, or even a weedy patch (weeds underneath will soon form a composted base) without any structural changes to the surface beneath. Growing in garden beds can add to your yard an enchanting greenery with many benefits for you and your environment! Once emptied of soil, they are easy to relocate if needed. The barren patch of ground left behind can be replanted with the grass. With regular watering and a pinch of fertilizer, the grass will cover the ground in no time.
There is a lot of talk about self sufficiency but ultimately, we are dependent beings. We need people, we need other living things and creatures and we all together need Earth. Self-sufficiency or not, sustainability should be the path to follow to preserve what we depend on. In the last decades our life seems to be turning increasingly more around consumption. We have every right to enjoy life and look for ways to make it fun and comfortable!. There are many ways to do so, some more ethical and sustainable than others. Without reflecting on the far stretching ripple effect our choices have on our environment (social and natural), we are jeopardizing not only our future lifestyle but especially the life quality of all the generations to come.
At My Kbun it is important to us to find garden solutions that sustain the environment and natural resources. For creating and maintaining a garden not every solution or option is 100% green, we have yet to find a bamboo watering can! Many times we are limited to either more or less ecological options. Whatever choices we make in our offer, we think a lot and consider many parameters before making a decision. If you look at our products and think of a better alternative that could improve our sustainability, we would love to get in contact with you and hear about it!
ARTISANAL & NATURAL
Our garden beds are all handmade and have a rustic feel. They are made in Bali by local artisans who mostly have basic hand tools to work with. After selecting reclaimed wood, the main work left is cutting and assembling. When frames are joined by an old style interlock design, the cutout shape of mortise and tenon are visibly a work of an artisan, which adds a sentimental charm to the product. Terracotta tiles are made with manual press, sun dried and then fired above coconut husk fire. We don’t use any chemical treatment or finishing on any of our garden bed frames. All the materials will age with time, without the chemical protection the signs will be visible a bit sooner. We offer you a natural look but if you would like to customize your garden beds with some varnish or color, it should be easy to do so .
