How to Build Raised Beds

If you are thinking about starting a vegetable garden, now is the time to plan. I highly recommend that you build raised beds. You can grow more vegetables in a smaller area and control weeds and soil conditions

    Raised beds are a great idea for any number of reasons.

    Thanks for the comment Debbie. I planted grass between my beds last year. That should fill in and really look nice this year.

    I build my flower boxes & such in the basement during the winter months. Anything bigger is left in pieces that are easy to assemble once outside. I even put raised beds in the front yard w/ herbs, blueberries, strawberries, & flowers. Can't wait for spring!!!
