Because these beds are sitting above the ground it permits the air to circulate around the containers and allows the sun to warm them up quicker. This will allot for earlier planting and quicker germination especially in the colder climate areas.
This type of planting will discourage insects and specific vegetable pathogens that can stay in the soil over winter and planting that same crop in that bed will infect the crop.
Garden planner uses Square Foot Gardening techniques to generate a garden design and planting schedule that fits your family perfectly. EZ Garden was inspired by Heather's early attempts at gardening and the trials she experienced. Her goal is to make vegetable gardening easier for everyone, especially new gardeners.
When gardening in these beds only means you are growing your flowers and vegetables above the ground. You can create your own by building a wooden structure with drainage holes in the bottom and fill it with your favorite organic soil mixture. Concrete blocks, bricks, or just about any material strong enough to hold the garden bed and raise it above the ground can be used.
