Garden / June 10, 2018 /
Raised beds offer excellent drainage. Soil compaction in no longer an issue, so working the soil and weeding will be much easier. Every square inch of soil will go towards food production as none will be wasted underfoot. Depending on how high you choose to build your raised beds, you could completely eliminate the need to bend over. At worst, even if your raised beds are only a foot and a half high, you would not be bending as far.
If you have limited outdoor space, be it a small yard, shared courtyard or balcony, a container garden may be the thing for you. One of the great things about container gardening is the ability to grow almost any vegetable and many varieties of fruit, given the right conditions and space enough for an appropriately-sized container.
