35 Creative Backyard Designs Adding Interest to Landscaping Ideas
I am looking forward to building my own garden this spring. I'll need a raised bed because the soil in my backyard is full of rocks and is too hard. I love the look of these beds, and that they're high enough you're not on your knees all day.
We're going to do something very similar to this in between our raised beds to grow pea plants on this summer. It will be like a living tunnel for the kids to play in.
Raised beds are a popular way to grow vegetables, and there are all kinds of styles. This raised bed is really done nicely. It can be covered as seasons change by spreading bird netting or greenhouse plastic over the pvc arches, plus tall plants can be grown on the trelises.
