Gardeners everywhere are opting to learn how to make a raised garden
bed over the traditional garden as they begin to realize the great
potential for this type of gardening.
If you know how to make a raised garden bed, you know that it is
typically a framed or contained garden and it offers more control over
the quality of garden soil and moisture, provides greater accessibility
to crops, and is easily maintained from year to year with only a new
layer of nutrients applied at the beginning of your growing season.
For many reasons, raised beds are considered better environments to grow more vegetables. Raised beds are typically easier to weed, water and fertilize. Raised beds help better define limited space in small yards. There is literally less bending over and much better control over soil quality. Finally the soil heats up faster--always a factor in Skillin's Country!
