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.
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.
Spacing for anchors: Usable Length (in inches) / Total Length (in inches) * 12 inches. For my beds, I calculated a spacing of 11.75 inches for my 8 foot board by dividing the Usable Length of 94 inches by the Total Length of 96 inches and multiplying this by 12. My four foot boards require a spacing of 11.56 inches.
Circular raised beds with a path to the center (a slice of the circle cut out) are called keyhole gardens. Often the center has a chimney of sorts built with sticks and then lined with feedbags or grasses that allows water placed at the center to flow out into the soil and reach the plants roots.
