With visual appeal, convenience and controlled soil conditions, it’s no surprise raised garden beds are gaining in popularity among novice and seasoned gardeners alike. Whether you’re just starting to work on your green thumb or have been tending your garden for years, you should consider adding a raised bed or two to your outdoor living space this spring.

Why Raised Garden Beds?

If you like the landscape design aesthetic of raised beds or are looking for a new way to organize your garden, here are even a few more benefits of raised garden beds:

· Convenience! Depending on their height, raised beds can be tended to without having to bend over, a plus for those who suffer from an achy back after an afternoon of tending to their garden.

· Control! Because they are self-contained spaces, raised beds require less fertilizing while providing an increased vegetable, herb, and flower yields. This also means less weed growth (and time spent weeding!).

· Conditions! Raised beds deliver reduced soil compaction, and, when properly setup, optimal drainage through the bed walls.

Types of Raised Garden Beds

There are many types of raised garden bed available at Dennis’ 7 Dees’ garden centers this spring. Everything from self-contained beds made of durable cedar to raised beds with legs that are ideal for urban gardening can be found in our four garden centers. If you’re looking for something more custom, our team can also help create raised garden beds unique to your yard and landscape. In addition to our custom options, you could consider the following:

· Raised Edible Gardens: Easily grow your own vegetables and herbs with a raised bed kit from one of our garden centers. Our freestanding, raised bed kits made from cedar enable gardeners of any level to enjoy edible gardening.

· Raised Cutting Gardens: If you’re reluctant to cut flowers from the your yard, but love the idea of keeping fresh flowers indoors, a raised garden specifically for growing and cutting fresh flowers is a great option that allows you to enjoy the beauty of your garden indoors.
