An Easy Guide To Building Raised Gardening Beds

What is a raised gardening bed and why is it better in every single way? Well, not only does it look pretty, but it produces better soil, better drainage, and not to mention it is way better for your back. They are better if you have poor soil because you can obviously choose the soil you fill your bed with and in doing so you can create a rich, ideal environment for you veggies to thrive in. Lets be honest, you'll be happier and so will your carrots.

My grandmother swore by raised gardening beds. She would spend hours outside with her flourishing radishes and carrots and things that I only have just begun to realize the awesomeness of. It helped that as she got older she could just sit on a short stool, or even on a comfortable outdoorsy pillow and still sit by her garden and help it along. Plus if you are having some serious mobility issues, you can always build the sides of the bed higher. Not only will your deep rooting vegetables appreciate it but then you don't have to spend hours bent over and can create a nice perch on the edge of the box for yourself.

Since this is a DIY, you can customize it whatever way you want. If you want a more traditional look, you can opt for the wooded sides. If you want more industrial cinder blocks are an inexpensive alternative. You don't need to break the bank at those hipster markets for fresh produce, you can just look into your handy gardening beds in which you have your own rich soil and an environment of such comfort for your potatoes that you'll be jealous of the life they're living. And as always, the benefit of growing your own anything is that you know exactly what is going into your food. And isn't that a nice peace of mind? Who knew that Raised Gardening Beds could help you leave a healthier lifestyle?
