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.

These days, more and more people are discovering the joys of playing in the dirt though grown-ups might prefer the term "gardening." Food gardening is especially hot, with nearly 20 percent more households hopping on the food-growing train during the past five years. Renewed interest in gardening may be due in part to the local food movement. Locavores are interested in having greater access to healthy, high-quality food, knowing where their food comes from, and supporting the environment and the local economy. Gardening (especially organic gardening) certainly fits the bill!Gardening has also been shown to have significant health benefits. For starters, it encourages people to engage in other behaviors and activities that promote wellness. For example, gardeners consume more fruits and vegetables than non-gardeners. When gardeners choose to grow food organically, they're reducing their exposure to pesticides and potentially eating produce with a higher nutrient content. Gardening also reduces stress and improves mental health. And it counts as moderate-intensity exercise, which can help people live longer lives.Raised bed gardening is not a new concept. Traditional gardeners used to double dig their beds to form rectangular or circular mounds 1-1 1/2 ft. high, with sloping edges. A standard practice in areas receiving plenty of rain, it ensured good drainage, besides providing a bit of extra space for growing vegetables.This type of gardening also proved to be perfect for many companion plantings such as carrots and onion family vegetables. The carrots went on the flat top of the beds and enjoyed the deep soil while the onions and leeks planted on the sides all around protected the beds from pests.The benefits don't end there, so it's no surprise that modern gardeners are increasingly embracing raised bed gardening, albeit with a new twist. The sloping sides of the earlier beds have been replaced by solid frames that give them a well-defined look. This way, the beds can be as high as you'd like them and prevents soil runoff during rain.Modern raised beds are relatively easy to construct on your own, making them an excellent option for many. The frames are built with bricks, concrete blocks or timber, and filled up with good soil and plenty of organic matter. With ready-to-assemble kits and prefabricated, food grade plastic containers available, anyone can now have a few raised beds to grow their veggies.
