Welcome To Garden 4 Life!

For many years, Gardening Revolution has been changing the way people garden all across the country. Originally owned and operated by Len Pense of Strafford, Missouri, the company’s soil-less, weed-free growing system has inspired gardeners to think (and plant) outside the rows.

Today, Gardening Revolution has moved and re branded to Garden 4 Life, but its mission remains the same. “Garden 4 Life ties in perfectly with our goal of helping families live healthier, more fulfilled lives,” says the new owner, Curt Rankin from Lebanon, Missouri. In late 2017, he and his wife, Dawn – along with their son, Chais, and his family – purchased the business from Len Pense.
