How to Build a Raised Vegetable Garden
Whenever I’m trying to make something like a raised vegetable garden, I’m focused on gathering supplies as cheaply as possible. I ask around and see what my friends may have lying around before I head anywhere to buy supplies.
Build a Frame
After I have the supplies I need, I start working on the actual frame to the raised garden bed. The frame needs to be as big as you’d like your garden to be. However, some garden lovers opt to build several raised garden beds instead of just one because it makes things a little easier space wise.
Stir Up the Soil
You will want to take the time to stir up the soil underneath the raised vegetable garden to help water drain properly. After you have stirred up the soil underneath the raised garden bed, you’ll want to add a rich soil to the top of the garden bed to top it all off.
Make sure the soil has plenty of nutrients in it because this is what will ultimately help your veggie garden reach its fullest potential. There are lots of potting soils or raised garden soils to choose from
Go Ahead and Plant
