A Good Idea, Well Executed - By Heather Oberg on March 30, 2015
My husband contributed to the Kickstarter and picked up a Seeding Square. We have used it for a couple weeks and are really happy with what it does. I already have radishes coming up and you can see them in a clear pattern, everything else is weeds. Using the pattern stretches the seeds and it is fun to mix thing up with fast maturing and slower maturing plants. You could have some fun designing your own checkerboard garden. This is a great tool, and works as easy as advertised.
It’s a great product especially if you use the Square Foot Gardening method. - By SFG4U on March 30, 2015
As a Square Foot Gardening (SFG) Certified Instructor I can tell you that this will be coming with me to all the classes I teach. It's fun to use and very sturdy. In SFG we plant our seeds very strategically. This way if something green pops up where it's not supposed to, we instantly know that it's a weed without having to wait until it gets big enough to identify. Since there's no "handle" sticking up it's easier to store than other similar seed spacing products - plus it takes only one product and not three for the different spacing distances. The little funnel and the wand (dibble) with a spoon on the end of it make it easier for my grand kids to help me in the garden. It's a well-designed and thought-out product, and it's just plain fun!

Garden is Growing and Daisy Scouts are Excited. - By Lynne Ober on May 28, 2015
I love to garden and this year I wanted to involved some of the neighborhood kids. We have a park where people can plant items. So, I purchased a seeding square and hoped for the best. Now I'm delighted and so are the kids who are helping me. It’s a foolproof system that guided the Daisy Girl Scouts through each gardening step. All they had to do was follow the color-coded template to plant a well-organized square-foot grid. It made them read (those pesky instructions) and then to communicate with each other before we started.
We chose the seeds we wanted to grow and then found the corresponding color holes, so our seeds were perfectly spaced. A pre-marked depth wand helped us plant at precisely the right depth, too. A seeding spoon and funnel allowed us to easily handle the seeds and get them planted.
Now our plants are growing in a pleasing grid formation, which also makes weeds very easy to spot. This product helped us optimize every inch of space, so we have more planted. This simple system is great for urban gardeners with limited space, gardening with kids, or any first-time gardeners who need a little help and my Daisy Scouts did.
Now they are so excited to know that they will each have some fresh veggies to take home and eat. Hopefully this will start them on a healthy eating track.
GREAT IDEA – By Joeline on June 18, 2015
I haven't had a chance to use the seeding square yet as I had already planted my square foot garden before I saw this product. I am impressed with the quality. I am always planting things too close together. I plan on buying 1 for my grandkids ages 7 & 9. My grandson always wants to "harvest" my garden when he comes to visit. I think the bright colors and easy planting guide will make it so much fun for them (with Mom's help).
(5 stars) Great gardening tool – By Shane on June 18, 2015 - This is a very handy tool for anyone with a home garden. Takes a lot of the guess work out of how far apart to plant different plants. Plus my kids enjoyed helping me with it.
Right on target – By Bill on June 19, 2015
As a square foot gardener since forever, what a perfect way to get squared up in the garden. Fast, efficient, damn clever. It's the better mousetrap when you weren't looking for one!
Works Great! – By Jack on June 21, 2015
As a square foot gardener, I had made a similar item out of plywood and drilled holes. This planting square and it's small tools works great and makes seeding your beds fast and easy. Well worth the money.
Genius – By Leon on June 21, 2015
A remarkably simple and effective tool for planting. If you are a fan of Square Foot Gardening, you know Mel B. would approve. We use it in our raised beds. Highly recommended. By the way, we laminated the seed guide.
For collapsing brains ... – By Lynn on June 23, 2015

Great Help – By Christine F. on June 29, 2015
Seems very sturdy and clear to use. Marvelous system for the new gardener or gardeners with limited space. Can't wait for next spring!
By Becky on June 29, 2015
Sturdy, easy. Great idea.
Fantastic Tool – By Jack on July 19, 2015
I have been using square foot gardening ever since the early 70's. This little square is so simple to use I can't believe how easy it was to plant my okra in my 4x4 raised bed. Everyone should add this tool to their garden tools. What a timesaver it is. BUY ONE!!!
Life made easier – By Rebecca on July 19, 2015
Just started using raised garden beds, and this has made planning and planting so much easier and quicker. I am hoping that my garden will look as pretty and organized as the ones in the pictures....and with this planting guide I feel like I have a head start.
New Toy- by Karen on July 19, 2015
I bought this for my Son-in-law who knows nothing about gardens but started one this year. He was having his birthday party and stopped everything to open and read directions. I think next year’s garden is going to go much smoother and this will let the kids join in to help plant. I think it will be used a lot starting next year.
Five Stars – By Laura Umphries on July 30, 2015
Exactly as described. Can't wait to use it.
Amazing Product - By Chip Collins on Feb.9, 2016
I just wanted to say I've followed you sinceKickstarter. You have an amazing product and it has a nice story behind making it. My birthday is coming up (February 13th) and my mother-in-law always overdoes things with tons of gifts. This year I told her all I wanted was two Seeding Squares. I'm planning to put them next to each other and just leap frogging one over the next so I can plant even faster. I just opened up my shipment from the Grommet because I couldn't wait until my birthday. These Seeding Squares are everything I hoped they would be! I can't wait to start using them in all of my gardens. I really hope you have a lot of success with selling these. I know I'll be spreading the word about your product! Thank you for taking the leap and sharing your idea with the world!
