  • Page F5 Gardening 1.jpg Gardening in raised beds has many advantages for the home gardener

    A raised bed is easier to plant because you don’t have to bend down as far. Weeding is also less strenuous because you can easily reach into the smaller area. Watering is more efficient since you have a much smaller area to water. Because raised beds are never walked upon, the soil is not compacted, which makes hand tilling a breeze.
