Do you have a small space for gardening, and you would like to produce your fresh vegetables and herbs? Would you like to learn how to build your own raised garden? Then keep reading... Why Use Raised Beds in Your Garden? Raised beds are one of my favorite ways to garden for a wide variety of reasons, which you will learn as you read this book. For many people, raised beds to make their gardening more organized, neater, and easier to manage. If you have any mobility issues, it can reduce the impact on your back and the need to bend, meaning you can continue to enjoy gardening even if you cannot dig for hours and kneel on the floor tending your plants. Set up raised beds properly requires absolutely no digging, which makes them ideal for efficient gardener after minimal maintenance work. They are also suitable for anyone with any disability, which makes digging difficult or painful. Anyone who works and tries to keep on top of their garden will be happy for anything that reduces the amount of work they need to do. I found that when I was working and looking after young children, the raised beds made the difference between having a vegetable plot and not being able to manage one. In traditional soil planting your plants lean over on to the paths, which quickly become covered. You then end up having to pick your way carefully between your plants and will usually end up standing on your plants. If you have children visit your vegetable garden, then you will know just how hard it is to get them to stick to unclear paths. I have lost many a row of seedlings to enthusiastic children wanting to help but not realizing where the paths are. In a raised bed garden, the paths are clearly defined, so there is no accidental squashing of seedlings! It also means that if the weather is bad, you do not need to walk on muddy paths as you can easily create paved or barked paths between your beds. Raised beds can be made out of pretty much anything you want, most of mine are made out of wood, but I am building one out of an old bath and have several made out of reclaimed bricks! You will learn everything you need to know about raised bed gardening, from locating your beds and planning through to building, planting, and maintenance so you can successfully build your own raised beds and enjoy an abundant supply of vegetables from them. This book provides a complete guide to the following: Why people should choose raised bed gardening Building your raised bed garden Planning your gardening What to grow and what not to grow in your raised beds Planting and maintaining crops in raised bed gardens High-yielding garden: the secrets Crop rotation and planting techniques Irrigation Putting your garden together Pest control Raised beds tips and tricks Tips for growing healthy plants...AND MORE!!!

***BLACK and WHITE VERSION*** Don't you have solid, healthy soil to plant your favorite fruits and vegetables? Are you afraid to start growing because you believe you are harvesting inedible fruits and vegetables? Keep reading! This book will provide you with the solution. Raised beds are great if you are growing in an area with poor or contaminated soil because it allows us to grow many types of vegetables, except for root vegetables. Amending the soil for the whole plot can be very time consuming and quite expensive; however, with a raised bed, you can just amend a small area at a time, making it more manageable. If you have good soil under your raised bed, you can easily plant crops that need deeper roots, e.g. potatoes. This Book is for you if: - You imagine being able to finally eat genuine fruits and vegetables and stop buying them at the supermarket. - Gardening is unknown to you and you are looking for a way to get started with little money and little time available. - You imagine that you can finally have a garden that others envy you. If you have space and, more importantly, the time and energy you need to grow a large garden well, go for it. However, vegetable gardens that allow the proper use of growing space are much easier to look after. Raising beds are the right choice for beginners, as they make the garden more manageable. The bottoms of raised garden beds are actually open-which means that the roots could easily absorb water. In this way, the plants would get the nutrients that they need. Remember, if you own a dog, it can be a factor for plant destruction. In this case, build raised beds high enough so the dog can't get into them. This Book Covers: - How to Build a Raised Bed Garden with Little Money and without Taking Time Away from Family and Work. - The 7 Mistakes to Avoid When Building a Raised Bed Garden that Anyone Will Envy Irrigation Systems. - The 3 Secrets to Know to Install an Efficient, Economical, and Safe Irrigation System over Time. - Like the Greatest Gardeners, They Take Advantage of Companion Planting - Saving Time, Money and Effort ...And much more!

Do you love to eat fresh, healthy vegetables but don't have enough time to maintain a typical row garden? Well, in that case you are going to love raised bed gardening. These gardens can be best described as free standing garden beds constructed slightly over the natural terrain. But why raised bed gardens? The reasons are pretty simple and straightforward: When it comes to growing fresh, nutritious vegetables in your raised bed garden, it doesn't really matter whether or not you own a fertile piece of land. It's nothing like the traditional forms of gardening. To grow a raised bed garden, you don't have to be an experienced gardener either - it is a lot easier to learn and execute compared to traditional forms of gardening. Some of the benefits of raised beds gardening include: Raised bed gardening helps you achieve a better control over soil type as well as condition; and because the soil warms up a lot quicker, you can get started at the earliest too The gardening techniques are easy to learn - therefore even a new gardener can learn the tricks quickly In addition, it is easy to add cold frames, fences, trellis etc. into your raised bed setup when you are ready for more advanced gardening Because soil compaction rate is pretty low in this form of gardening, you are required to work much less - this of course is an added bonus for those who despite having the will, have not yet been able to embark on any gardening project due to lack of time The production rate is also impressive because with proper planning and execution, one can easily utilize every single inch of a well-designed raised bed garden for harvesting purposes This book covers: Why Raised Bed Vegetable Gardening When And Where To Plant Preparation How to Build A Raised Bed Garden Types of Raised Bed Top Vegetables For Raised Bed Tips Why It Is Suitable For You Planning your raised beds will take some time, and it is much better to do this on paper rather than wasting time and materials out on your vegetable plot. I did find that drawing my plot to scale on squared paper, cutting out the shapes of raised beds from paper and moving them around on the drawing worked well. It allowed me to maximize the use of my space and get the best possible layout without any work at all! Many first-time raised bed gardeners make the serious mistake of creating a garden which is too large to look after - and this is precisely why you should always kick start the project with a lot of strategic planning. Choosing an adequate size and layout of a raised bed garden is perhaps the most important factor associated with the task. The bottom-line here is that just like any other form of gardening, knowledge and planning (or the lack of it) plays a pivotal role in determining the success or failure of a raised bed garden. You need to make yourself familiar with a lot of aspects such as soil type, the correct layout, the best amount of sunlight, wind protection and so on before getting started.

ARE YOU LOOKING FOR A COMPLETE GUIDE ON VEGETABLE GARDENING? THEN KEEP READING... Vegetable gardening includes choosing a place, planning the garden, preparing the soil, selecting the plants and seeds, planting a crop, and cultivating the plants until they are ready for harvest. The final result is a new product to consume, share, or market. Anyone who's willing to spend some time daily to nurture the crops may grow a vegetable garden. It does not take a good deal of cash, time, or ability, though some of each will be useful. With practice and patience, your abilities will improve each year. Do not be discouraged if the first effort is not a massive success. Growing veggies takes some space, but not always acres. A vegetable garden may be on the ground or within a planting bed, however it does not need to be. Many vegetables can be raised in containers. By way of instance, enough lettuce for a salad could be raised at a 12-inch pot on the backyard. Insert several radishes and carrots, also raised in 12-inch containers, like sweetness and spice, and you get a fantastic start on a yummy salad. This Book Covers Introduction Greenhouse Gardening What Is Raised Bed Gardening Organic Gardening and Companion Planting What is Hydroponic Gardening Aeroponics Container gardening And Much More! Success, however, takes more than only somewhere to grow the vegetables. They need sun, water, atmosphere, soil, fertilizer, and maintenance. Once you have the setup of your new garden under control and done, the basic maintenance such as watering and putting a good organic fertilizer on it should be very quick and easy. A check for any unwanted dinner guest to your vegetables, again, should be a quick job. In fact, sometimes the evidence of these pests will be staring you in the face. I personally hold no mercy for these critters and head straight away for an organic spray or powder to remedy the situation. I do, however, take great care not to use remedies when my good bugs, such as, ladybugs or bees are active during the day. Even if you are growing your fruit and vegetables on high rise apartment building balconies, chances are the bad bugs will find them. After dealing with the bad bugs you can look forward to eating the fruits that your labors will give out. I can assure you that the hardest part will be testing out new recipes to use your delicious results and really, that will translate into a joy rather than a chore. There really is nothing like the feeling of popping down or out to your own garden to pick fresh ingredients for your favorite recipe. Don't be surprised when using the freshest possible ingredients your favorite recipe just got whole lot better. If you follow the steps in this book as to the setup of your garden and a few tools to make your life a little safer and easier, you will be able to sit and admire the new life that you have created around you in no time at all.

Loaded with practical advice and step-by-step guidance, Organic Gardening for Everyone takes a very personal and friendly approach to a subject that can be intimidating. It is a first-class primer on organic vegetable gardening, and an inspirational story about how anyone can balance the rigors of gardening with the demands of a modern, family-oriented lifestyle. In 2012, a California mom decided to start an organic vegetable garden. But she went about it in an unusual way: she crowdsourced it by launching a YouTube channel under the name "CaliKim" and asking for help. And then she started planting. As questions came up, she turned to her viewers and subscribers and they replied with answers and advice. As she learned, her garden grew successfully—even in the hot, harsh California climate. Her expertise also grew, and now she answers many more questions than she asks and has become a very accomplished home gardener. And CaliKim has a great story to tell: growing healthy organic vegetables for your family is not difficult, even for today’s time-challenged lifestyles. She provides complete step-by-step information on growing the most popular edibles organically, and also gives sound advice on how to take on the challenges of balancing a hectic lifestyle with successful growing—and how to involve the whole family in the process. You'll be rewarded for your effort every time you place a plate of natural, organic vegetables on the family dinner table knowing exactly what they are, what is in them, and where they came from.
