** COLOR EDITION** If you want to learn how to build a raised bed garden, then keep reading. A raised bed garden is essential for anyone who wants to create a more complex agricultural system designed to be more space-efficient and to produce the most yields. It is a proven, tried, and tested method for raising production level and quality, allow gardening efficiency in small spaces, and it even saves time and money. It even allows itself to be more efficient for using soil known for being difficult to work with, such as clay. Traditional gardeners have been making use of raised beds to grow their vegetables for many years. They would double dig the beds, creating circular or rectangular mounds a foot or so high with the sloping edges on the sides of the beds. This is especially effective in areas that receive lots of rain since it guarantees good drainage. Additionally, it allows a bit more space to grow your veggies. Typically, experienced gardeners are the ones partial to this gardening method. They do this as a way to avoid the numerous challenges surrounding seasonal gardening. But this doesn't mean novice gardeners should not attempt to employ this gardening technique as they make their way into the wonderful world of gardening. Because raised bed gardening is usually used to grow edible plants, be very careful of the kind of materials you use. For instance, if you use wood that has been treated with toxins or railroad ties, this might seep its way into your vegetables and herbs. Instead, experienced gardeners use cedar wood or eco-friendly lumber. This book covers: -Planning your garden & building structures -How to build a raised bed -Types of raised bed gardens -Keyhole raised beds -How to build raised bed from bales of straw -Raised bed garden designs -Benefits of raised bed gardening -Soil -Planting -Growing and harvesting -Plant profiles (part 1) -Plant profiles (part 2) And much more.. There is nothing like looking over a well-tended garden filled with row upon row of beautiful shades of green foliage, colorful blooms, or lush, healthy vegetables. However, it can take years of hard work, toiling away to achieve this picture I just painted. While some gardeners love spending hours in their gardens, mixing soil, tilling it, watering, and weeding, not everyone has that much time on their hands or the inclination to spend so much of their free time on gardening. The answer is a raised bed vegetable garden. Not only do raise beds make vegetable gardening less of a chore, but it is also a lot easier. You can grow more plants in raised beds than in the same sized area on the ground. The beds are higher, so no more backbreaking work or kneeling down between rows to do the weeding or harvesting. Raised beds are very convenient; if you spread mulch along the paths between your beds, you can quickly run out while you are cooking to cut a handful of herbs without getting your shoes muddy or dirty. Raised beds are attractive landscape features. They make your garden look neat and tidy, and you can even dress them up with details like corner posts or paint them to match the color of your garden furniture.

Growing plants in raised beds have many great benefits. One of the most significant benefits is the ability to produce more from the same area. Elevated bed gardens can double or triple the amount of space harvested produce! This is because the square footage required for pathways is considerably reduced, and more space can be dedicated to plants. Another great advantage of growing in elevated beds is that you can change the soil quality more readily, and you can also grow plants in highly inhospitable soil. Gardening is no longer limited to yard-houses. Today, one can build an indoor beautiful, and serene garden. Many people now use raised beds for indoor gardening. These beds are suitable for flowers and vegetables. Additionally, the height of the beds decreases the back pressure you get when dealing with traditional garden beds with constant bending.

I was seeing these raised garden beds in a friend’s home. She loved gardening. She also had back trouble. So crouching down in front of her beloved flower and vegetable as well as herbal garden in order to de-weed them was purgatory to her. And then her handy do-it-yourself practical husband said, “Why don’t we raise the crops and plants in beds which are waist high?” And he immediately set about building 4 feet wide beds, in square shaped blocks with wood. The soil was raised above ground level, and placed in that wooden frame. The results were amazing. It was only 10 years later that I found out that raised bed gardening was being practiced extensively all over the world. Avid gardeners were making bed frames out of concrete, rock, and even wood. They made the containers to their own particular requirements, with dimensions ranging from 1.0 m to 2 m, depending on the space they had. Gardening in containers is all very well, but raised gardening eliminates the use of pots. And best of all, as my friend told me, “I do the gardening on my raised bed. Himself –(her enthusiastic DIY gardener husband) plans to plant plants which love the shade under the raised beds. In that way, we are utilizing every inch of the soil, as well as lots of space above ground level. What a sensible way to make gardens in limited spaces.” She has the right of it. And this is possibly the reason why so many people want to know all about raised bed gardening in rich organic compost laden soil. So as you are one of them, let us start with how we can utilize every square inch of our land, economically and beneficially, by making raised beds, how to make them, how to take care of them and how to enjoy their harvest. I definitely advocate natural methods for gardening, so I am going to tell you about the best organic and natural gardening practices, which people all over the world have been using for centuries. Take advantage of our technology in other aspects of gardening like watering, etc., but still use the old natural methods for fertilizing the soil.
