Are you using a raised garden bed system in your gardens? Raised garden bed benefits are many, and they are perfect for new gardeners as well as veterans. A raised garden is quite possibly the easiest way to garden; just build, fill and plant!
Raised Garden Bed Benefits
My garden is a raised garden bed farm with a few containers too. I add more boxes every year and we are getting cut our produce costs a little more each year. You just can’t beat homegrown, organic, vegetables and fruit; right from your backyard. So what are the benefits of a raised garden bed? Let me tell you!
1. Easy to start
You don’t need to till or dig up a large area to prepare it for planting. A raised garden bed is already built, or you build it; set it down and fill it with soil.
2. Almost no weeding
I see a lot of sites claiming that raised beds have no weeding. That isn’t exactly the case. You’ll have a lot less weeds but if the wind blows, you’ll still probably have a few. Remember to build your box on top of a layer of weed control; this can be cardboard, newspaper or weed cloth. I used weed cloth but I know some people don’t like it; it just gives me longer protection.
