Raised bed Gardens

I am putting this post on my blog to let you all know about one of the good techniques in gardening - Raised bed gardening. I just came to know about this concept few days back as I was browsing through the net. So, I just did a little more research on the "Raised bed gardening" on net and I have put all my thoughts into this post :). Raised bed gardens are also called garden boxes. Garden boxes or raised beds are very similar to the planters, the only difference being, these garden beds and boxes are left with an open bottom so that the plants can root themselves into the natural ground and get nutrients from there instead of confining it to an area as in planters. A snapshot of the garden bed:

Also garden beds comes in many shapes and sizes as per our needs. The most popular garden bed shapes are rectangular garden beds, U shaped garden beds, L shaped garden beds, Square beds, octagonal beds and hexagonal beds. Also, garden beds could be made of materials like wood,steel,bricks,stones or with sheets and earth bags. These garden beds or boxes can be bought or even it can be built on our own.
