Looking for a better way to garden? Consider installing a raised bed.
Raised beds have been used for centuries for good
reasons, they are better for many plants and easier on gardeners.
Raised garden beds can double the results obtained from more
traditional vegetable and flower gardening techniques.
Drainage, rocks or poor soil are no longer an issue with raised beds, and the extra height
allows the garden to warm up more quickly in spring. Extra height can also help if you
have trouble bending.
Advantages can far outweigh the initial time and money investment. Raised beds
- require less fertilizer and water;
are easier to maintain;
promote better plant and root growth;
keep weeds from your garden;
prevent soil compaction;
provide good drainage;
serve as a barrier to pests such as slugs and snails;
extend your gardening season, warming up early in the spring and stay warmer later in the fall.
