Enclosing the Back Porch With Raised Garden Beds
My back yard got a major makeover with the addition of raised garden beds to enclose my back porch. The porch was pretty plain before, without much curb appeal. I decided that I wanted some raised beds to grow herbs and veggies without having to bend over to harvest my crops. I worked with a local landscape company- Doc and Eric Hurt of Landscape 360 out of Birmingham Alabama- to come and build these raised beds for me out of 100% cedar. You can see pics of the process below.
Here is the area before construction began.
During construction- they added the cedar underpinning around the perimeter of the deck to serve as the back of the raised bed.
Here is how they worked around the support post.
And then it was all enclosed!
This project took them about 1.5 days to complete.

And finally, here is the before and after of the finished project. My veggies and herbs are growing happily and already producing a little crop for me. I'm excited to see how these do all summer long!
