Whether you are an avid gardener or just getting your feet wet, there is a pretty good chance you have heard of raised garden beds. But did you know that raised garden beds aren’t that difficult to make, and the benefits are plentiful?
If you have never made a raised garden bed, you may want to do some research online before you start. Cedar wood is a great material for the frame because it is naturally rot resistant. Also, before putting in the soil, it is wise to place cardboard on the ground to act as a temporary weed barrier. For the soil itself, you can use a mixture of topsoil, compost, and other organic materials to provide the plants a nutrient-rich start.
A raised garden bed can be a great activity for the whole family. Not only is building the bed fun, but harvesting the veggies is even more fun! If you have built a raised garden bed, are there other tips or ideas you can share?
