The services that users value most when renting an urban vegetable garden

More and more people are choosing to rent an urban garden to grow their own fresh fruit, vegetables and herbs, even to promote sustainability and urban agriculture. Urban gardens offer a space to connect with nature amidst the hustle and bustle of the city. It is a place where people can enjoy the fresh air and tranquillity while working in their garden.

If you have your own vegetable garden and want to make the most of it and help other people to enjoy their harvests, here are a series of services that gardeners value when renting a plot.

A small grocery and consumables stall

Anyone who has a vegetable garden knows that it is not an easy job. That’s a lot of hours spent cultivating and caring for nature. Sometimes, however, we forget to take care of ourselves.

So after a long day’s work, it is also a good idea to take a break. Thus, it is important to have food products on hand through vending machines. Water, food… Everything you need to make the day more enjoyable.

Besides, haste is never a good thing and many times we can forget any utensil and many people appreciate having a small store to sell consumables such as: fertiliser, seeds, basic tools, it is not bad for anyone and we can continue with our tasks without having to leave the garden.

A personal space

Another service that is highly valued by people who rent an orchard is having a small space where they can leave their belongings when they come home.

Incorporating small rudimentary cupboards where gardeners could leave their tools and implements can make the difference between your plot and others.

In very hot months it is inevitable that the gardeners, while doing their chores, sweat and get dirty between planting and planting. For this reason, it is also advisable to incorporate toilets with showers. While this may be a bit more cumbersome, having a changing and washing area at the end of the day is not a bad thing.

Leisure area

Users often appreciate being able to connect with other gardening enthusiasts, share experiences and knowledge, and participate in horticulture-related activities and events.

Part of the business is based on people not only gardening, but also socialising with other hobby gardeners. It is therefore important to dedicate a leisure area with vending machines for drinks and a barbecue which can become an additional source of income.

Other valued services

The other part of the business, in addition to the sale of inputs, is the care of the orchards communal services at the customer’s request, when they cannot go to their orchard (watering, weeding, harvesting, etc.), at an hourly rate, and carry out work such as the use of the “mechanical mule” or a small tractor, depending on the cultivated area and the work to be carried out.

In addition, other aspects that those who wish to rent an urban garden pay attention to are that water is included in the price or that the plot is close to building areas and has ample parking space. 

These are the services most valued by those who want to dedicate themselves to urban gardening. However, we know that each person has his or her own needs. We would therefore welcome any comments from you on services that you think could also be valued.
