When growing vegetables in raised garden beds using the Square Foot Gardening method, your beds will need to be sectioned off into one-foot sections called planting squares.
Number of anchors per board: (Usable Length / Spacing for anchors) - 1. For my beds, I need 7 separators for each 8 foot board and 3 for each 4 foot board.
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.
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.
