Raised garden beds are the shortcut to a plentiful supply of fresh fruits and veggies, even in the first year.
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.
There’s also better soil with raised garden beds since you’re starting with a fresh blend of earth and 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. You can quickly build your garden bed using cedar, recycled plastic, galvanized steel, concrete blocks, or any other raw material.
Let’s look at some of the most creative garden beds you can make in your backyard from concrete blocks.
