Whether you’re a novice or seasoned gardener, there’s one thing you can do to significantly increase the chances of growing a happy, healthy, and impressive garden – build yourself a raised flower bed.
There is a myriad of reasons that make raised flower beds superior to beds dug straight into the ground. Raised flower beds, besides being more aesthetically pleasing to your home’s landscaping than a hole in the ground, can also increase the quality of your plants. Best of all, they’re easy to create.
One essential benefit of using raised flower beds is that your prized petunias will now be higher off the ground, making it easier for you to care for them. A lot of us could use a little reprieve from back-bending labor; you don’t see many spry eight-year-olds tending garden.
Raising your flower bed has health benefits for your plants, too. When you fill your raised bed, you won’t have to till whatever dirt is found in the yard. Finding a good compost/soil blend will give your flowers or vegetables an ideal area for growth.
The confined space of the raised bed will also retain more heat from the sun for a longer period of time, keeping your crops warm and cozy. Drainage can be built right into the walls of the bed so that any excess moisture can find its way out – no fear of drowning your plants.
Raised beds allow for closer grouping of plants as well. This practice can increase crop or flower yield, use water more efficiently, and crowd out pesky weeds.
Bringing your flower beds off the ground also just looks better. If you take great pride in your home’s lawn care, like we at Professional Property Maintenance know you do, consider building a raised flower bed for your garden. Not only will it increase your lawn’s appearance, it may even increase your home’s value.
