There are many benefits of raised beds for gardening. One of the most obvious benefits is that you can garden in a raised bed even if you have poor soil. The improved drainage in a raised bed also helps to avoid waterlogging, which can kill plants. Another advantage of raised beds is that they warm up earlier in the spring and stay warmer later into the fall than traditional gardens. This extends the growing season for crops, allowing you to grow more food! Finally, raised beds are easy to work with and can be customized to fit any space or need.
