Base plate for beds made of WOOD is supplied with V-shaped tracks, which has to be mounted on the inner side of the bed. The base plate is made of a double plastic layer with inner slats.
Use of base plate:
The base plate is used in the following situations, where you:
• Want to avoid the soil in the bed coming into direct contact with the underlying layer – as for example wood flooring or flagstones.
• Use GrowWater self-watering system, where the wicks must stand on a solid surface without sharp edges and objects.
• Want to fit wheels or legs to the bed. It is then necessary for the bed to have a base.
NB: The base does not make the bed waterproof.
