The Natural Form Garden mattress is a hybrid mattress that is unlike the hybrid mattresses that we have come to know and love. Instead of a coil system, the Garden mattress has a layer of air chambers that act as a support layer.

Similar to an air bed, the sensation of sleeping on a Garden mattress makes you feel as though you are weightless, thus relieving pain and pressure off your main pressure points.

With adjustable firmness controls, you are able to choose a firmness level that would suit your preferred sleeping position making the Natural Form Garden mattress a good choice for most types of sleepers.

Who should buy the Garden Mattress?

  • Back, stomach and combination sleepers
  • Couples with the same sleeping styles
  • Those who suffer from chronic pain and back pain
  • Those who would like to be able to control and adjust their beds

Firmness

The Garden mattress is probably the “tech-iest” mattress we’ve tried thus far, with its self adjusting firmness controls. Found on either side of the bed, the exterior dual sided dials are used to adjust the Garden mattress to become either softer or firmer. They also have an optimum setting, that self adjusts according to the sleeper’s weight and sleeping position. Natural Form actually suggests that you keep the mattress on the Optimum setting for the ideal mattress firmness.

Now, we always recommend side sleepers to go for softer mattress and strict back and stomach sleepers to go for firmer mattresses. Medium to medium firm mattresses are great for all types of sleepers except for exceptionally petite side sleepers. The Natural Form Garden mattress is what we would classify as medium to medium firm. This means it would work well for almost all types of sleepers except for strict side sleepers who weigh less than average.

That said, some average weight sleepers have found the Garden mattress to be a bit too soft for their liking so this really would fall into a matter of preferences at the end of the day. People who are used to thicker mattresses may also find that the Garden mattress can be somewhat too thin.

Construction

The Garden mattress features a mix of foam layers between its air chambers. Topped with a Merino wool cover that helps regulate body temperature, the Garden mattress also features a comfort layer made up of CertiPUR US high resiliency foam. More responsive than regular memory foam, this foam layer contours to the body, providing pressure relief.

Right underneath the comfort layers sits air chambers – 8 on each side – that helps with support as well as pressure and pain relief. To control these chambers, there are exterior dual-side dials on both sides of the mattress that allows the sleeper to control air pressure without the use of pumps or electronics. The air chambers are also componetized to help the mattress last longer without any danger of leaks or damages.

Sleeping on a Natural Form adjustable bed can take some getting used to for a first timer but if you are someone who are used to sleeping on an air bed then this is going to feel slightly similar. The differences end there though. Natural Form adjustable beds like the Garden mattress combine a proprietary Pressure Free technology with premium, eco-friendly materials to create an entirely new sleeping experience that is approved by most health institutions and chiropractors across America.

The air chambers sit within a polyfoam base that literally keeps them together while providing a sturdy, durable base for the whole bed.

While the Garden mattress mattress is inherently more responsive than memory foam mattresses, it offers the same motion isolation capabilities as it is noticeably less springier than innerspring mattresses. This makes it a great option for those who share a bed with a partner.

As mentioned previously, sleeping on the Garden mattress for the first time may take some getting used to for newbies and as someone who belongs to that group, it took a couple of nights for me to get used to the almost weightless feel. There is no sink-in, coddled feel to the Garden mattress which makes it a great option for those who suffer from chronic pain such as fibromyalgia.

Sizes

The Garden mattress comes in 10 different sizes, including a not often seen Olympic Queen. The mattress measures 10″ in thickness. It is compatible with most beds and bed frames but would Natural Form recommends pairing this mattress with an adjustable bed to be able to reap its full benefits.

If you prefer a mattress that’s slightly thicker and are a sufferer from back pain – whether chronic or temporary, you might want to look into Natural Form’s award-winning Refresh mattress.

With up to 10 times more the number of air pods used compared to the Garden mattress, the Refresh mattress offers even more support and pressure relief, making it a solid choice for those who might need extra help when it comes to managing any back or spine issues.

Who should buy the Refresh mattress?

  • Those who suffer from back pain
  • Hot sleepers
  • Couples with the same sleeping styles
  • Those who prefer slightly thick mattresses

Firmness

Natural Form mattresses’ firmness levels can be controlled by the sleeper, thus making it a great option for all sleeper types, be it stomach, back or side sleepers.

Because the number of its air pods are significantly more than Natural Form’s flagship mattress, heavier individuals may find that this bed could provide them with the support and relief that they would need. On the same note, sleepers of average weight may find that the Refresh mattress might be softer, which could cause problems for strict stomach sleepers. As a combination sleeper who tends to sleep mostly on my stomach, I did feel well supported.

Couples who share a bed might also like the Refresh mattress, especially if they have similar sleeping styles. Because of its hybrid blend foam layer, it has minimal motion transfer so you can sleep soundly even with a fidgety partner, or a fidgety pet. I felt as though I get the best bits of an air bed and the best bits of a memory foam mattress combined when sleeping on a Natural Form bed.

Construction

Similar to the Garden mattress, the Refresh mattress features a foam layer with an air pod system as its support and base layer. It also comes encased in a cover that’s made from natural Merino wool, that’s been proven to regulate body temperature. This means that if you sleep hot, the mattress can help keep you cool and of you sleep cold, then the mattress can help warm you up. This makes it a good choice for people who live in varying types of climates.

The top comfort layer is made up of 3″ of CertiPUR-US certified hybrid foam blend that is more responsive than memory foam. I definitely did not feel as though I were being swallowed up by the bed. The responsiveness also helps those who suffer from pain, as this allows them to move about the bed more freely.

Beneath the comfort layer lies the air pod system, which is different from the Garden mattress which has air chambers. The air pod system in the Refresh mattress can house up to 80 pods no each side, depending on the mattress size you choose. Similar to the Garden mattress though, the air pod system is also a patented technology that is exclusive only to mattresses by Natural Form.

These air pods can be manually controlled by exterior dual sided dials so you can choose a firmness level that’s just right for you. I prefer mattresses that are not too soft and not too hard and being able to choose a mattress firmness by twisting a dial feels very much like I’m in control which I like. Natural Form does recommend to keep the bed on its ‘optimum setting’ which is a setting that actually conforms to your weight and body shape. They recommend to keep it on this setting for the first two weeks to reflect the correct volume and pressure to displace your body weight.

The air pod system lies within a foam casing that also acts as the base. This keeps them together while keeping the mattress layers intact. This also helps keep the mattress stable, unlike regular air beds that tend to wobble around.

Sizes

The Refresh bed comes in 10 different sizes, including a Split California King. It measures 11″ thick. It is compatible with most bed frames and bases but Natural Form recommends that it works best with adjustable beds.

  • Twin
  • Twin XL
  • Full

Durability

Since the mattresses comes shipped full-sized, Natural Form offers an in-house setup and delivery – similar to white glove delivery – for a nominal fee.

What makes up an awesome bed? First of all, it should be comfortable, it shouldn’t let you sleep hot and it should provide ample support and pressure relief. Basic stuff.

But everyone’s own personal circumstances are different, everyone’s preferences vary. A perfect mattress for me may not be the perfect mattress for you. But sometimes, a mattress can come close, especially if you have the option to try out different firmness levels within just one single mattress.

Made for everyone, from lightweights to heavier individuals, the Euro mattress is the thickest out of Natural Form’s mattresses. Featuring the same air pod system as the Refresh mattress, this mattress is a great option for all sleeper types.

Who should buy the Euro mattress:

  • All sleeper types
  • Couples
  • Hot sleepers
  • Those who suffer from chronic pain such as fibromyalgia
  • Heavier individuals

Firmness

Just like with Natural Form’s other mattresses, you have complete control over the Euro mattress’ firmness levels. You can go from soft to firm to not too soft and not too firm and back again. This makes it a good choice even for those who share a bed with a partner with different sleep positions.

Once you get your new bed though, Natural Form recommends that you keep the mattress on the ‘optimum setting’ for the first two weeks so the bed can properly conform to your body shape and body weight. After that, sky’s the limit but we have found that a lot of people like to keep their Natural Form mattress in the optimum setting as they come to realize that it is the scientifically perfect pressure setting. After trying out the Euro mattress, I have found this to be true. Those who weigh over 250 lbs though may find that the optimum setting may be a bit too soft for them so they should probably choose the firm setting to get more of a medium feel.

We have found that motion transfer is fairly minimal, even with its air pods so it is not at all comparable to an air bed even though it technically is.

Construction

The thickest out of Natural Form’s mattresses, the Euro mattress features 4″ of CertiPUR US certified high resiliency, hybrid foam blend that, unlike traditional memory foam, does not have any of that ‘stuck in the mud’ feel. The responsiveness adds to its pressure and pain relieving properties especially when combined with the air pod system.

The newest out of Natural Form’s proprietary tech, the Euro mattress utilizes a helix air pod system that features up to 84 pods, depending on mattress size. This air pods offer pressure relief while helping to support the body. I almost felt weightless when sleeping on the Euro mattress, and for someone like me who suffers from mild scoliosis (and impeding old age), this is heaven.

There’s no danger of popping any air pods as they are enclosed in a foam layer that also acts as the mattress base layer. You can control the air pods (and the firmness) by twisting the dual sided dials to get to your desired firmness level. No need for air pumps or remote controls that can get lost.

One thing about the Euro mattress though is that some verified reviews have noted that upon getting their new bed, there was a slight plastick-y, new mattress smell emanating from it but this can easily be remedied by airing out the mattress in a well-ventilated room for 24 hours prior to first use.

Like its counterparts, the Euro mattress comes with a Merino wool cover that helps regulate body temperature to help keep you cool while you sleep. This wool cover is removable and machine washable, which is a convenient way to help keep your mattress fresh and clean. Be forewarned, wool tends to shed in the wash. This is natural. For further care instructions, you can revert to the care manual that will come with your new mattress.

Sizes

The Euro mattress comes in 10 different sizes including a Split King. It measures 13″ in thickness and is compatible with most bed bases and frames.

  • Twin
  • Twin XL
  • Full
  • Full XL
  • Queen
  • Olympic Queen
  • King
  • California King
  • Split King
  • Split California King

Durability

The Euro mattress comes with a 100 night sleep trial, should you wish to see if this mattress is the best bed for you. It is backed by a 10 year warranty when you do decide to keep it. To maintain its quality and extend the longevity of your mattress, we always recommend to use a mattress protector.
