About this item

Raised-bed gardening is a popular gardening technique that allows growers to achieve greater yields while watering less. An opening section explains the basics of raised beds, focusing on the benefits of raised beds (easier maintenance, better drainage, soil amelioration, etc.) and explaining how to build, maintain, and compost with raised beds.

The heart of the book comprises instructions for building and maintaining 17 different types of raised beds, from the conventional-style bed to the more innovative "keyhole garden" that is particularly effective in hot and dry climates. Other raised-bed styles featured include rooftop gardens, raised-bed dining areas, and raised beds for children. The book concludes with plans for 5 planting projects, including an herb garden, a vegetable garden, and an ornamental garden.
