Raised beds are what's hot right now in gardening. Who wants to bend over and toil? Elevated garden beds make for easy planting and maintenance for the long haul. And they're fun. We love raised beds for several reasons. First, our clay soil is just not suitable for most plants. With our raised beds, purchased soil supplemented with organic compost is spot-on for our vegetables and plants. Secondly, our three raised beds lend an attractive element to our suburban block. They are unique! So we hope you enjoy this garden raised bed from Denny and Cheri Larimer of Apple Valley, Minnesota. Do you think I can convince Tom to build me yet another raised bed? Mother's Day approaches! Here's how Denny and Cheri built a 4' x 4' raised bed with four separate 2' x 2' planting areas and three varying heights. Just wait to you see the finished project.
Sure, we spent a boatload to build our raised beds. But you don't have to.
Here's how our Central New York friends, Josh and Beth built raised beds out of pallets for cheap.
[Almost nothing!] And guess what.....you can too!
Or at least go on their picture journey.
No time to build a raised bed? This one is super cheap and easy to use!
