Raised Bed Systems

 For details about building and using a raised bed click here.

If you lay out your garden with the traditional rows and paths of our grandparents you are limiting your garden productivity simply by using that old design.  Raised beds offer more square feet of growing area than a row and path layout .  

The key to the raised bed approach is that the bed is just wide enough so you can comfortably reach the middle from each side and therefore you avoid ever walking on the bed itself once it is established.  You can now plant vegetables throughout the entire bed placing them so when mature, their leaves are just touching the leaves of adjacent plants.
