Beyond being a great landscaping idea, it can also help extend your garden’s season since the soil in a raised bed will stay warmer for longer. And it’s a great way to start a vegetable garden if your soil isn’t in the best shape.
Raised beds can be as humble or creative as you like. A raised bed planter can be a permanent fixture for perennial plants to settle in and mature.
The initial cost of getting your raised bed set up will depend on how elaborate you make it. Still, once in place, grown beds are relatively inexpensive to maintain than traditional gardens. They offer a lot of benefits.
Raised bed gardening involves growing plants in soil that is higher than the ground. You can most commonly do this with some enclosure or frame made of wood, stone, bales of hay, or even repurposed material like old dressers.
Raised bed gardens can fit just about any space. With creativity, you can create an entire garden sitting area.
