Vertical growing allows almost any gardener to find a space for melons. There are many advantages of going vertical with your melon vines. Space is the most obvious. What may have engulfed a 10 to 20 foot wide swath through the garden can be trellised to take up no more than a 3 foot wide "footprint" of garden space.
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.
