Raised bed gardening has grown in popularity over the last decade or so. A raised garden bed is, in essence, a large planting box used for gardening instead of the traditional method of sowing plants directly in the ground. The raised beds or garden boxes add an aesthetic appeal to the landscape, while also providing many advantages to the homeowner such as making gardening easier on the body, better weed and pest control, a longer growing season, and potentially higher yields.
Raised beds are an easy way to get into gardening! Whether you purchase a kit or build your own.
