Want a raised bed garden? This half-day project makes gardening easier and more comfortable. It’s higher than most raised beds, so you don’t have to bend over quite as much, plus it has a bench on each side so you can sit while you plant, weed, and harvest. This is an ideal garden set-up for older gardeners, folks with back or knee problems, or anyone simply looking for an attractive, unique style of raised bed to add to the yard. Cut the lumber yourself if you have some woodworking experience, or make it easy by having the boards pre-cut at your local home improvement store. Be sure to choose a level piece of ground in a well-drained area that gets at least 6 to 8 hours of sun per day. To help prevent weeds, cover the ground inside the bed with newspaper or landscaping cloth before filling with premium quality potting soil.
