Urban gardening is now very popular these days because of food safety awareness, our financial economy, and because we want to be eco-friendly. Just because you only have a garden area that is very small does not mean you cannot use some small raised garden beds on a patio, deck, or back porch for some herbs, vegetables, flowers, or ornamental plants to enjoy.
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.

The 4x8 foot garden beds I bought, for instance, are 4x8 feet from end to end. But when you connect the boards at the corners, you lose a few inches, so the interior dimensions of the garden bed are actually a few inches short of the advertised size. In my case, my beds have an interior dimension of 46.25 inches x 94 inches. I refer to these dimensions as Usable Length for the remainder of this article.
