This also makes more space available for intensive crop production. They can be created over large areas with the use of several commonly available tractor-drawn implements and efficiently maintained, planted and harvested using hand tools. This form of gardening is compatible with square foot gardening and companion planting.
Raised garden beds add new measures to the experience of gardening. Garden beds that we raise above the ground give the gardener with just a balcony a place to grow flowers or a vegetable garden.
Companion planting is something to consider when planting in your raised vegetable garden beds. Companion herbs and companion vegetables help in the control of insects and will improve the health of the garden.
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.
