Garden Ideas: Raised Garden Beds

Raised Bed Garden Design Ideas

Make your garden look great with raised garden beds.

Raised garden beds are a great way to add a garden to many yards. Raised beds can give more crops in less area, and are better for those who can’t or don’t want to do the bending and stooping that often comes with traditional gardening. There are many types of ways to build a raised garden, from building one yourself with scrap lumber to buying an attractive cedar raised garden kit.

The different Styles to consider

But one of the most popular ways to make a raised garden is to use a vinyl raised bed kit. These plastic garden kits offer a great compromise between the cost of the high end wooden beds to the sometimes less than aesthetic appeal of the scrap lumber approach.

Plastic raised garden kits also have the advantage of coming in a number ofcolors. You can find them in an attractive white color that is reminiscent of a picket fence, to a brown color that simulates real wood, a gardener’s green, to a utilitarian black.

One other very popular style is the Wallrock beds that are made of vinyl but look like rock or concrete. These come in either straight or curved sections, so you can make a round planter that will look great with yard statues alongside them.

Another feature of many plastic or vinyl bed kits is that they are extendable, and with some they can also be built into shapes other than the traditional rectangular shape. They also come in a variety of heights, so you can tailor the bed for the vegetables or flowers that you plan to grow, and by combining multiple heights you can create a tiered effect in your landscape.

You can use a smaller raised bed or box on a patio or balcony for a planter, and there are a couple of these that are designed to be self watering, so you can leave them unattended for much longer.
