A raised garden is as easy to maintain as a container garden because the flower bed, vegetable garden or herb garden is developed above ground; however, it can be as large as you want it to be.

There are many benefits to this type of garden…

  • It is easier to prepare your soil because you don’t have to deal with the soil that is already there.
  • The soil is looser and easier to work with.
  • You can plant more per square foot because you won’t have to leave room to step around the garden.
  • Weed control is a lot less demanding.
  • It is a resolution for a rocky yard.
  • You will spend less time on your knees.

 


How to Build an Above-Ground Garden


You will need to build or assemble something to hold your garden. There are ready-made beds that you can purchase and assemble, or you can build the container out of lumber, used railroad ties, or you can get fancy and build it out of cinderblocks or brick.
Fill the garden with prepared soil that is appropriate for what you are growing.
Plant your plants.
Mulch the garden if necessary.

From then on out, you will care for your garden just like you would an in-ground garden.

I will be creating raised beds for my backyard flower gardens because the land is rocky. For my vegetable garden, I will probably have soil brought in; however, I am thinking about raising my veggie garden after researching the options.
