Raised garden beds or garden beds, are popular and productive gardening methods. Here gardeners can easily produce vegetables, flowers and other plants in the least amount of savings land, labor, money and time.
The advantages of raised beds:
Raised garden bed higher than the surrounding ground and constructed in a geometric way, there is an additional way without damage to the plants. Bed protects plants from the path of weeds and other pests like slugs and snails. It also protects the garden from soil washed away by rainwater. The weeds are easy to pull as the soil is loose. Even vacationers do not need to remove the weeds when crops grow close to each other, as the weeds can not compete with grain.
Raised garden beds and save time; labor and money as you need to dig, fertilize, and water only in beds, not on Earth. Growers who are unable to move freely to find raised beds the perfect solution as they can care for plants, sitting in a wheelchair or on a solid bed frames.
Raised garden beds bottomless and open to the ground, allowing plant roots further into the earth to collect the available nutrients in the ground. Here grow better as the soil in the beds is deep, loose and fertile.
How to build raised garden beds:
Raised garden beds above ground level and consist of fertile soil surrounded by a frame to hold it in place. The frame is usually made of wood, stone or concrete blocks. Among them, wood is a better and environmentally friendly. The selection of the most sustainable wood takes longer to sleep, even ten years without repair.
The beds are separated from the ways in which gardeners care for plants. Before setting up bed gardeners have to lose the soil with a fork and to dig in the soil about 6 to 12 inches deep. It’s better to mix soil with the upper and lower layers together for better rooting. Choosing a Sunny location is best place for horticulture.
Raised garden bed can be any length and shape depending on location. As a rule, beds 28 to 30 inches in height, in width 4 feet to 8 feet and a width of 4 feet to 12 feet in length, so you can easily get to the center of the bed without stepping on it. The depth of the beds for rooting of plants are best to 6-12 inches.
