Global Implications

We believe Pyramid Garden can change the future. Drought is a very serious threat to many parts of the world. Aside from growing organic produce up to 30% faster, Pyramid Garden’s unique internal spraying system reduces water consumption by up to 80%! Combining Pyramid Garden with alternative sources of energy, such as solar power, would have an even bigger implications on the environment and people’s lives. Pyramid Garden’s potential for global impact is truly remarkable.

Why It’s So Special

Pyramid Garden’s 4X4 size allows 32 sq ft of growing surface, giving you the ability to grow up to 136 plants at once. Not only can you plant a greater variety and more plants,  but you can also plant in stages, assuring all the plants don’t ripen at the same time.

Because of its sloping, 4 sided pyramid design, Pyramid Garden allows for more sunlight compared to other systems with flat, vertical sides. This, along with its unique nutrient delivery method, increases plant growth up to 30%.

Since Pyramid Garden doesn’t require soil or even a constant water source, it can be used just about anywhere:  A patio, yard, balcony or even inside your home with a grow light. Just plug it in to any conventional outlet and your ready to grow!

How Pyramid Garden Got "Kick-started"

While on vacation my wife and I stumbled upon a greenhouse filled with white pyramids with enormous amounts basil and lettuce growing out of them. Being avid produce growers ourselves, we had to find out about this. Allan, the Pyramid Garden inventor, came out and greeted us and told us all about his revolutionary new way to grow organic produce more efficiently. Although Allan’s greenhouse was set up for commercial use, we couldn’t stop thinking about how everyone could greatly benefit from having a Pyramid Garden in their home. We talked Allan into sending us a Pyramid Garden. After witnessing first hand how incredibly easy, fast and beneficial it was, we quickly partnered with Allan in order to get Pyramid Garden out to as many households as possible. You could say it was match made in heaven, with a side of parsley!

 FAQ:

What is Aeroponics? 

Aeroponics is the process of growingplants in an air or mist environment without the use of soil or an aggregate medium.

How many plants can I grow?
The Pyramid Garden, with the panels included can grow up to 136 plants. The plants holes are spaced out every 6 inches. This gives you the flexibility to space out your plants depending on how much room they need to grow.

How long does it take to set up the Pyramid Garden?

It should take you approximately 20-30 mins to put together. It will take you 15-60 mins to plant your garden. This depends on the type of plants you are installing. For example, if you are installing soil based seedlings, it will take some time to clean the soil off the roots. Ensure you do a really good job to alleviate clogging issues.

How long does it take to grow plants in the Pyramid Garden?      

Plant growth and harvest times vary based on the type of plant. Typically plants can be harvested 3 weeks after seedling transplant. (leafy greens) Of course this depends on environmental conditions.

How often do I change the water?

It is advisable to change your water every two weeks. This will allow for fresh nutrients to the plants and cleaner water. If your water contains a lot of chlorine, its best to leave the water in an open environment for 24-48 hours. This process allows the chlorine to dissipate.

How do I start the Pyramid Garden?

Easy! Just plug it in to any conventional outlet, add nutrients to the water, check your pH balance and you're ready to grow!

How do I configure my plants on Pyramid Garden?

Each plant has its own set of requirements for growth. Depending on what you are growing, place your plants accordingly. For example, if you are growing vining plants like tomatoes, cucumbers, and green beans; plant them on one side of the pyramid. Or plant them on the lower level of the pyramid for easier trellising if required.  A little research on the plant you want to grow, will alleviate future problems.


Where should I place my Pyramid Garden?

The Pyramid Garden can be placed anywhere where there is a good light source. Light is a requirement for highly productive growth. If you live an area where there is high intense summer heat, it would be advisable to provide some shading.

How much space do I need for the Pyramid Garden?

You need 16 sq. feet. The dimensions for the Pyramid Garden are 4 feet by 4 feet.

What is the Pyramid Garden made from?

The planter is made with a food grade polyethylene core which is laminated with a UV resistant stove lacquered aluminum for superior strength. Pyramid Garden will last for many years to come!

Pyramid Garden Needs Your Help!

We need $45,000 in funding to buy the forms used to create the molds of the trays and reservoirs. It will also help finance the other essential components such as the watering system. The funding we hope to receive here on Kickstarter will allow us to go in to full production.
