To celebrate the launch of Gardenista, we're inviting readers to submit pinboards of favorite urban gardens (fire escape, rooftop, balcony) on Pinterest. The prize? A Cedar Bed-on-Legs (valued at $299.95), courtesy of our friends at Agrarian. Here's how to win: Follow Gardenista on Pinterest . Create a pinboard titled "Gardenista Urban Gardens" featuring images of your favorite urban gardens, rooftop gardens, house plants, windowsill gardens, and more. Pin at least 15 images to your board (feel free to pin more), with five images pinned from Gardenista . Post a direct link to your pinboard in the comments section by 6pm PST, Sunday, June 3. Our judge is Gardenista correspondent Kendra Wilson, who lives and gardens in rural Leicestershire and writes for the Observer and the Guardian; the winner will be unveiled on Tuesday, June 4. To get inspired, see our Urban Gardening board; below are a few of our favorite garden inspiration images.

Above: The 2-by-4-foot Cedar Bed-on-Legs gives the gardener control over soil conditions (which means less fertilizing), optimal drainage, and the elevated design reduces the need to bend over while gardening. The raised bed is perfect for use on a balcony, deck, and other small spaces. Handmade in the US from FSC-certified red cedar; valued at $299.95 from Agrarian.
