Why buy raised garden boxes and raised flower beds?
Got a green thumb? Some of the best investments you can make when cultivating your inner gardener are using raised garden beds. Raised beds or garden boxes are a good solution for creating a simple flower or vegetable garden in a smaller square footage. They can be made of wooden planks, metal sheets, or other materials that form a box which rests directly on the ground. Raised garden boxes have an open bottom to allow for the plants’ roots to grow.
But what are the advantages to buying a raised flower bed or raised garden box? Here are just a few of their many benefits:
- Soil won’t erode away like it does with traditional in-ground gardens. Garden soil and mulch are kept within the raised garden box, which is helpful especially during rainstorms when topsoil would wash away in other gardens.
- Weeds and pests have a harder time getting into your vegetable garden and flower beds when in a raised garden box. This lets plants to grow more freely without as many hindrances!
- For gardeners with back pain, having to bend down to tend to your garden can be a strenuous endeavor. But raised boxes are higher up for less bending over. Gardeners may even be able to sit on the edge while they water their plants if their raised garden bed is strong enough.
- The open bottom found in raised flower beds and garden boxes can give your garden the potential to grow more and more. Elevated planters, on the other hand, have a closed bottom or barrier that keeps soil in the garden planter, but that gives less room for roots to expand deeper.
