Useful information

Selecting the best spot for your Goody Foody Garden

Select the spot with the most sun, away from overhanging branches, and on as flat a surface as possible.

Children will likely play in the garden, so use common sense and avoid goals, swings etc and busy footfall areas.

The beds are lined allowing them to be placed on any surface including stones, slabs, driveways and lawn. Bear in mind lawn will be affected by having the bed placed on it, so check the family are ok with this. Do not place the beds on decking as it will eventually rot the wood.

The beds can be placed anywhere around the property so the best spot could be in the front garden or to the side of this house; what is important is to get the maximum amount of sunshine.

The completed Goody Foody Garden measures 1.8m x 0.9m x 0.3m, so you will need at least 2.5m x 1.5 to move around the perimeter of the bed on at least two sides.

Delivery

We will deliver your Goody Foody Garden and other items from the roadside directly onto a driveway or private, accessible garden.

Our Gardeners will manually lift the goods, so we hope you will understand that goods cannot be lifted up or down flights of stairs, or over any walls, fences, hedges etc.

Gardener appointments

When you book an installation or maintenance check you will be asked to select an available date and time and this will be confirmed with a Goody Foody Gardener.

Installations take approx. 1 hour and maintenance checks are 20 - 30 minutes.

During the Covid-19 restrictions, all deliveries and beds will be built without any contact or instruction directly from the gardener. Please do not have any contact. You will be provided with lots of ways to get support and ask questions via email, guidebooks and our What’s App group.

Once the installation is complete, a further two follow up visits from the Gardener, 6 weeks apart, will ensure your new vegetable garden has the best chance of success. After the Covid-19 restrictions are lifted you will receive lots of face to face advice and expertise, and can ask as many questions as you need, to build up your knowledge and confidence.

You can book a maintenance visit from a Gardener at any time, either with the latest seasonal plant sets to plant in your Goody Foody Garden or without.

You cannot reschedule or cancel the appointments within 24 hours. If you do need to cancel or reschedule, please contact us as soon as possible to allow our Gardeners to manage their appointments and ensure the live plants are not in transit.
