Raised Flower Beds

The newspaper will prevent any grass and weed seeds from germinating, but unlike fabric, it will decompose after about 18 months. By that time, any grass and weed seeds that were present in the soil on planting will be dead. It’s green, it’s cheaper than fabric, and when you decide to remove or redesign the bed later on, you will not have the headache you would with fabric.

Raised Beds inside the look of this!!! And the Dogs would stay out of the flowers when they are running!

Raised beds are the perfect way to start your own garden. Fruits, vegetables, flowers and shrubs can all thrive in the raised bed environment. The popularity of raised beds is on the rise because of their many benefits – reduce soil erosion, the ease of access to control weeds and pick...

Mow-over flower bed edging. Very easy to do at a very inexpensive cost! Will save you hours with trimming.

Baking soda neutralizes the ph in the soil and nothing will grow there. use baking soda around all of the edges of flower beds to keep the grass and weeds from growing into beds. Just sprinkle it onto the soil so that it covers it lightly. Do this twice a year - spring and fall.

Raised Bed Gardening. I love this layout. The stones create a pathway through the garden. Climbing plants can be planted along the trellis. Flowers can be planted along the path. Herbs and veggies can be planted in the raised garden beds, and are protected from little critters eating them before you do!

We want to do raised flower beds when we move...what a simple way to make them look delightful!

This looks almost identical to the raised flower bed I put in my former back yard. I miss that flower bed! I plan to put another one in my new back yard in time....

Raised flower beds, Beautiful steps. Could we do something like this for the Mary Garden by the ramp into the back yard?

Raised Flower Bed- I want to do this around our front tree since it's branches are so low it's a pain to mow around. Plus, then there's more room for flowers!

Our lot slopes from front to back, so we need a barrier wall like this to keep the water away from the front of the house. I like this idea much better than stuff we've come up with previously!

raised flower beds -- these pre-built ones are pretty but expensive to buy and can be built easily and more affordable.

    actually, these are just joint systems and separately purchased wood. The smaller joints on the first tier are about $10 dollars at Home Depot and fit a 6x2 plank. super easy to assemble and definitely a cheaper option! as for doing a fancy tiered system like this, it more just depends on your own creativity.

I like this raised bed with the built in bench.

Gonna be doing this on my patio to cover the big spot where the concrete is eroding and unpatchable.

Raised Garden Bed. Like this idea a lot. You can plant in the brick holes as well. Perhaps beneficial plants/flowers?

    Same here. And you can often find free ones at construction sites (ask for their leftover, don't just take) and buy cheaper ones at a block company that might have a little chip off or be what they call "seconds." I placed cardboard and thick newspaper in the bottom of mine; much better than plastic as it attracts the earthworms to come up and kills weeds just as well.

    I have 3 of these beds at my place and they are great! My first one was 2 bricks high like this, but I soon realised it didn't need to be that high so my other two are only 1 brick high. I have herbs and marigolds growing in the holes.
