Raised Bed Gardens
Raised Bed Gardens
Raised bed gardens have many advantages. They greatly reduce soil compaction because you never have to step in the bed. You can easily garden from outside of the bed. This helps the plants because it is easier for them to get air, and helps the gardener because he/she can sit on a stool and garden. Besides, the bed is raised, therefore less bending. Plants can also be planted closer together because you don’t need any place within the garden to step, you can reach all the plants from outside the bed. This increases productivity and reduces weeding. (Plants usually grow larger in raised bed gardens, so be sure not to overcrowd the garden). Another advantage of raised bed gardens is that they drain away moisture better than regular gardens, so rotting roots are never a problem. In areas of the south, especially Florida, where saturated soil is a major problem, raised bed gardens is the best way to garden. In raised bed gardens you are able to control the soil conditions and can even vary conditions for different plants in separate beds. Water, fertilizer, compost and mulch can be applied more carefully and correctly because they are only needed for the bed. Studies have shown that raised garden beds produce up to twice the vegetables and flowers per square foot of regular gardens. After their set-up, raised bed gardens need less maintenance than conventional gardens.
There are many different options for raised bed gardens, including material, shape, and sizes (length, width and height).
The following curved raised bed gardens are made of recycled plastic. Besides being eco-friendly, these raised bed garden kits are insect and rot resistant, and long lasting. The beds improve drainage for your plants. They are easily assembled with a hammer and screwdriver, and do not require grass or lawn. This makes it easy to use them in unusual places, like decks or rooftops. I invite you to view some beautiful raised bed garden kits.
