If you are looking to create a small garden in your yard or near your home to grow vegetables and fruits or different types of flowers, a raised bed is worth considering.
Raised beds and planters can solve a number of problems. They make spacing your lawn and garden very easy and eliminate the need to till the soil. You can build them high off the ground to be easy on your knees or your back.
They also improve drainage. If your soil is sandy or mostly heavy loam, raised beds filled with just the soil mix you want make planting a breeze. Raised beds also warm up faster than garden beds, which is ideal if you live in a cold climate and want to maximize the number of growing days per year. And bonus, they’re easy to fence off, keeping your prized plants away from hungry garden visitors like rabbits!
