How EarthBox® Original Works


The EarthBox® Original gardening system is a low-maintenance, fail-proof design determined to fill the needs of the home gardener of any skill level. Since not all home gardeners live in the same area, there are many challenges to finding the perfect container gardening solution for everyone, but the EarthBox® does just that! Combining science—and a ton of testing—with great design and American manufacturing, the EarthBox® container gardening system was designed by applying a variety of tried-and-true commercial growing concepts to a small footprint to produce better results than traditional in-ground gardens. The following diagram explains in detail how the EarthBox® growing system components all operate together:
