10 Reasons why raised beds are great for the garden.

  • The added height can bring well-drained soil to a boggy garden, rooting space to a stony soil, or space to grow where there is no soil at all
  • They can be filled (and easily re-filled) with fresh soil that is free from weed seeds and diseases, and rich in nutrients
  • Vegetables and fruit can be planted more intensively, giving bigger harvests from a smaller space
  • The soil warms up faster than open ground in the spring, giving plants a head start on the growing season
  • By working on the beds from the sides, rather than treading on the soil, the plants roots will not be compacted, keeping them healthier and happier
  • The extra height off the ground makes maintaining the plants easier, with less strain on your knees and back
  • Raised beds can keep plants out of reach of rabbits and household pets
  • A raised bed or two is a great way to allow the less able to continue gardening and to introduce children to growing plants
