Why Is It Better To Create A Raised Garden Bed?

Here is advice on how to build a raised garden bed for your backyard. Raised garden beds are fairly easy to construct and even easier to maintain.

  • Easier access and more comfortable gardening, due to less bending and kneeling
  • Greater productivity, producing higher yield for the area thanks to better drainage and deep rooting
  • Ideal for smaller spaces (versus a conventional row garden)
  • Overcomes rocky, poor, or abused soil by creating the ideal growing mix
  • Allows for a longer growing season, since you can work the soil more quickly in the spring in frost-hardened regions
  • Makes gardening easier; for example, intensive planting creates shade
