soil content - the soil that is generally used is mostly manure, compost and soil mixtures instead of ground soil; appearance - raised beds generally make very decorative gardens because the gardener enjoys maintaining them.
They are perfect for the disabled gardener, those suffering from arthritis, and the elderly as they can be elevated to a suitable level so that bending over and kneeling will not be necessary.
Some of the other benefits of raised beds are: reachable - less bending and stretching gives the gardener easy access and makes maintaining and harvesting less of a task to perform; drainage - because the soil is above the ground it will not become compacted during heavy rains and will drain properly in preventing water-soaked soil;
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.
