Vegetable gardening in a raised garden bed. alot of people ask us Why should I use a raised bed? Here’s why we think raised beds make sense: Protect your soil from traffic, this ensures the soil doesn’t get compacted by walking on the soil. Choose your soil. Many gardens have shallow soil of poor quality which won’t be sufficient to feed demanding vegetable plants. A raised bed can be filled with imported soil to your specification. Easier to manage. You’ll have less trouble with encroaching weeds from the surrounding area. The extra height makes weeding a raised bed much more comfortable as bending is reduced. Neat and Tidy. If you’re growing in your back garden you don’t want to ruin your view with an untidy plot. Raised vegetable beds create a neat, easy to manage growing area. Warm Quicker in Spring. Raised beds will warm quicker than the surrounding soil in Springtime from the heat of the sun on the sides. This allows you to get going a little earlier as growing depends more on soil temperature than outside air temperature. Raised Beds Aid Growth. The rich deep soil means you will get more vigorous growth from your vegetable plants and in many cases can plant at closer spacings making a small area more productive.
