chris chapman: roll out vegetable garden


english designer chris chapman wanted to make planting vegetables and herbs at home less work with his
roll-out vegetable mats. the design aims to make home food production as simple as possible and easy to
maintain for busy individuals and families. the design features a mat pre-treated with fertilizer on its
underside and a series of seed pouches which slowly biodegrade over time. this arrangements allows the
plants to develop before coming in contact with nutrients, increasing the chances of germination. the mat
is made from corrugated cardboard and come sin a variety of options each suited for different planting
seasons. small signs designate which plant is where, making harvesting a breeze.
