Raised bed gardening requires less space than traditional gardening, and provides a great solution for areas with rocky soil, sloped terrain, or poor drainage. This user-friendly guide provides instructions for building your own frame, preparing the soil, planting, fertilizing, watering, and mulching. Includes cost-comparison tables for building raised beds and for various growing media, from mushroom compost to Miracle Gro, plus a sample design illustration for the most efficient use of space.
