To grow a vegetable, raised-bed gardening is a great way especially if your garden soil is poor or compacted or has poor drainage. And there is no bending over to pull the weed or harvest vegetables. It takes little space and can be built over a concrete patio. The drainage in it is superior to that in an in-ground garden bed.
Consider not building a raised bed on a wooden deck because when the bed is full of soil and water, its weight could cause structural damage. Line the planting bed with hardware cloth or chicken wire at building time if the raised bed sits directly on the soil to prevent visits from burrowing animals; grasshoppers and moles. Don’t forget to choose the location that gets at least 6 hours of direct sunlight each day. Now take a look at these 36 easy to make DIY-raised garden beds ideas below to inspire you.
