Raised Bed Gardening

You Are Here: Home / Raised Bed Gardening

Raised bed gardening is a great way to garden for several reasons:  If your soil is of poor quality, if it’s difficult for you to bend over, if space is limited, or if you prefer the look of this type of gardening.  First, establish the location of your garden by determining the area of best sun exposure.  Next, fill the raised beds with a quality garden soil mix.  It’s usually called a 1/3-1/3-1/3 mix.  This equates to approximately equal parts of peat, coarse sand, and quality black dirt.  You will also want to amend this with some type of compost, manure, and 10-10-10 garden fertilizer.  Mix all of this well with a roto-tiller or a shovel and hard-tined rake.   Let a sprinkler run on it for 1-2 hours so your mix is well watered and settled in.  You’re now ready to plant.
