Grow Your Own Vegetables in Raised Beds
Raised beds are a wonderful way to grow vegetables. They make the vegetables easier to protect from pesky slugs and snails while keeping clear pathways and stopping the spread of pathway weeds. Some people find raised beds to have better drainage due to less soil compaction, and soil can’t be washed away by heavy rains.
Raised beds bring the working area higher, reducing potential back strain by cutting out the bending down, and you can even sit on the edge to weed with sturdily-built ones. Beds can even be built high enough to be accessible from a wheelchair.
