Why raised garden beds?
Before putting in raised garden beds, we wanted to make sure we were aware of the benefits. And the drawbacks because there are some.
Growing vegetables in garden beds helps control weeds.
And because the garden beds are raised, it’s easier on your back and knees when it comes to planting, caring for the vegetables, and harvesting.
Since those beds are clearly defined spaces, nobody will be walking on soil. Veggies like fluffy soil, not compacted down by foot traffic.
It’s easier to put good soil into a frame instead of having to dig it into the existing soil at ground level. Amending the soil later is also easier.
