This urban garden post was brought to you by UrbMat from UrbnEarth.  All opinons are mine.

Spring is coming!  Spring is coming!  I know it's hard to believe with the cold temperatures in the United States, but it really is coming, and that means that it's time to start thinking about your Spring garden.  And now there's a great solution for urban gardeners, too!  We have a big backyard with lots of room, but there was a time when we had only a small space for a garden.  I was bummed because I wasn't sure what I could grow in such a small space.  UrbMat has made it super simple for city dwellers with only a patio, fire escape, or small backyard, to have a boutiful urban garden.

The UrbMat was created to help families, educators, and kids learn about gardening and protecting urban resources.  It is an easy to use, easy to grow garden that isn't high maintenance.  The 2' x 3' UrbMat allows you to grow 12 herbs, flowers, and vegetables in any space.  All you need is six inches of healthy soil, water, and sunlight.  It can be placed on a raised bed or exisiting soil.  The UrbMat is also reusable, so it's good for the environment in that respect, too.  Just purchase more GrowUps next year (and the years after that…)

Other great aspects of the UrbMat:

  • non-GMO
  • deters weeds and pests
  • built in drip line saves water
  • fast and easy setup
  • great for all ages
  • plants can be grown in most areas
  • GrowUps are made with organic nutrients, clay, compost, earth worm castings, chili powder, and non-GMO seeds (each UrbMat comes with 30 GrowUps including arugula, basil, carrots, catnip, cilantro, chard, lettuce, marigold, parsley, kale, radish, and spinach)
  • plant types are color coded, pre-spaced, and integrated with companion planting
  • no digging required!
  • garden staples secure UrbMat to soil
  • full warranty for 12 months

I cannot think of a more perfect product for a beginning gardener or a city dweller – just give it a little love and TLC and the UrbMat does everything else for you.  Of course, as a parent, I think of how awesome this would be to encourage a love of gardening, as well as a major teaching tool, with my kids.  With a little help, the Captain could have his own little UrbMat garden!

  1. I LOVE this idea. My thumb is anything but green but actually think I could use something like this!

  2. This is really neat! I wish I had somewhere to put a gardening bed!

  3. What an original idea – great for kids! My daughter would love this!

  4. What an awesome idea. I love that it is non_GMO too!

  5. Pretty sure I *need* this! I'm not a natural green thumb, so this would be so much simpler!

  6. Looks like a really cool idea! We have a small space, so this would be great for us.

  7. Looks like  a wonderful product for those in small spaces or just starting out with gardening! Great for kids too.

  8. Wow – that's really interesting. This would be awesome for kids too to have their own small garden area to take care of themselves.
