Galvanized Steel Raised Beds. Great idea! Easy on the back, keep weeds down.... attractive, too! I'm wondering how long they last? No instructions on how to make them on the blog post but it can't be difficult. There is a gallery of other raised beds for inspiration gathered by the blogger. Thanks to my friend, Nicole, for pinning this!
Raised garden bed from crates - fab bit of recycling! There's no instructions in the link, but we reckon it'd be easy enough to build. We love the fact that you don't just get to plant stuff in the main part of the bed, but in the ends and side too! #homesfornature
I did this because there is no digging in my rock solid ground. Did not cover the holes but use them for herbs and annuals. I also lined with weed barrier cloth and used rebar in several places for stability. I love it and makes maintenence super easy.
How to Build and Install Raised Garden Beds by Popular Mechanics: Well suited to novices, raised gardens allow you to customize the soil bed and maximize the use of space by setting plants closer together and increasing yield while decreasing water usage and crowding out weeds. The raised bed improves the warmth of the bed due to increased sun exposure, improves drainage, and best of all, saves your back! #Gardening #Raised_Beds #Popular_Mechanics
