Creating a square or rectangular timber-framed raised bed is easy, especially if the pieces are pre-cut to length.

Raised beds are ideal for growing vegetables, fruits and herbs. They provide better drainage on heavier soils and a deeper root run for crops like carrots and potatoes. Raised beds also lift up trailing plants, such as strawberries, which helps to prevent rotting. If you buy fresh topsoil that’s guaranteed weed- and disease-free, your crops will have a better chance of growing well.
