FAQ

Q: Are they safe to grow food in? 

A: Our Next Gen Birdies Beds are made from cold-rolled, 24-gauge aluzinc galvanized steel and then coated with a non-toxic, USDA-approved paint. The hardware is food-grade stainless steel. The materials are 100% food safe and will not leach into your soil, allowing for safe and healthy food production.

Q: Will the beds get too hot in the summer or hot climates? 

A: No they do not. Compared to standard wooden, concrete, and plastic beds - especially if made from a dark color or material, our Birdies Beds outperform in maintaining even and cool soil temperature. The superior reflectivity of the material keeps most of the heat from ever passing through into the soil. The bulk of soil within the bed quickly absorbs and dissipates heat from the thin, but strong stainless steel panels. 

Q: Are the beds bottomless? 

A: Yes, the beds are bottomless. This allows water to escape and removes the need to drill any drainage holes. By allowing the soil from your bed to touch the ground, you end up with superior, microbe-rich soil and healthier plants. 

Q: What are the beds made from? Will they rust? 

A: All of our Birdies Beds are constructed from 24-gauge cold-rolled steel with an aluminum-zinc (aluzinc) alloy coating. The aluzinc steel is 100% food-safe and up to 7x more rust-resistant and corrosion-resistant than standard galvanized metal. This ultra-strong metal is often used to make gutters, down pipes, and rainwater harvesting tanks. 

Like all iron-based metals, all steel will rust eventually. With proper care, these Birdies Beds are built to last 20+ years. We still have original Birdies prototype beds from 2007, which show minimal signs of rust and corrosion. 

You can improve the longevity of your Birdies Bed by keeping your soil free-draining within a 6-7 pH range and not using fresh chicken manure. 

Rust Prevention 

Q: Can I place the beds on hard surfaces such as concrete? 

A: If you're placing your Birdies Bed on pavers, concrete, tiles, or anything you don't want to stain, we recommend using a bed liner or geotextile fabric. 

To use, place your raised bed in position, then place the fabric on the bottom of the bed from the inside. Run excess fabric up each side and then fill your bed with soil. The fabric allows water to drain freely, but keeps soil from touching your surface. 

Optional: To further protect the surface, place thick builder's plastic down before placing your bed into position. Once the bed is filled, the excess plastic can be trimmed around the edge of the garden bed with an Exacto knife. 

Q: What is the thickness of your metal beds? 

A: Birdies Beds use 24-gauge cold-rolled Aluzinc coated steel. 

Q: Can the safety edging handle freezing temps? 

A: Yes, the Birdies Bed safety edging is UV-safe and designed to withstand both freezing and hot temperatures.
