I love raised beds and I am pretty sure I may never garden in the ground again. I like the neatness of the whole thing. I also think weeding is so much better. I did a lot of research and started small. Bit by bit I try to add a little every year. This year I am adding a 10′ by 30′ section. It will be enough for 3 more beds and a center bed. Hard to describe but you will see what I am talking about when its done.
