What does gardening in raised vegetable bed mean? And why should you use this form of gardening? In case you have already seen photos of raised bed crops, you would have thought that they look like large planters that allow the growth of various plants far from the real soil. Very often it happens that they are made by man. And it’s true, you too can create your own with a little help using wood and planning. This type of gardening also has many advantages.
This form of gardening is beneficial for both plants that you plan to grow and for yourself. An example of how you simplify your life is that when you grow plants at a high level, it means that you don’t have to bend over and crawl all over the garden while weeding. It’s easier while on your knees, believe me! This is also an advantage for older people who otherwise have to bend over and crawl in the garden and it is almost impossible for them.
Another advantage in raised bed agriculture is that it allows for excellent drainage and plants grow well. There is also a lot of sunlight available. Soil erosion during rains is a big problem, but only until a raised bed plant is adopted. In this way all the necessary minerals and nutrients remain in the soil and contribute to the healthy growth of plants. It also helps to place the woods in this part of the garden. Because if the water does not drain, it is extremely dangerous for the plants that are planted there. In raised bed agriculture the advantage is that this never happens because they are above the ground and the water is able to pass easily. Water retention is perfectly managed and controlled in this way.
How to create one
If a garden with a raised bed is what you want at home or in the gardening area, then it is a fairly simple process that you need to follow. First create a perimeter that surrounds the area of the plantation or where you intend to build the raised bed garden. Normally wood and some other materials are used to do this. Place a huge layer of sand on the bottom of the bed to help drain the water. The bed can be made short or tall as desired and the depth and width can remain unchanged. Accumulate it with top soil or clean dirt that contains all the nutrients needed to aid plant growth.
This form of gardening, I would say, is the ideal way of gardening. Although it takes some time for installation. Once the work is done, it becomes extremely easy to maintain the garden.
