Raised garden beds have many benefits. It’s a small-space gardening technique that ensures every inch of space is used which means more food or flowers in return.
There’s also better soil with raised garden beds since you’re starting off with a fresh blend of soil along with fewer weeds since raised beds are densely planted.
Raised garden beds come in a wide range of sizes and shapes. The more soil depth you have, the more freely the roots of your plants and vegetables will grow. Increased soil also holds more moisture, which means less frequent watering.
For optimum plant growth and productivity, your raised garden bed should get at least eight hours of full sun every day so be sure to place your garden in the sunniest area of your yard.
You can build your own raised garden bed using a variety of materials. Whether you choose to use cedar, galvanized steel or concrete blocks, you can build your garden bed with ease.
