A comprehensive manual to gardening in raised beds, with information on everything from construction, maximizing space and maintaining your garden.
Raised bed gardening is the fastest-growing garden strategy today, and Raised Bed Revolution is the definitive guidebook to mastering this consistently proven and effective gardening method.
Raised Bed Revolution provides you with information on size requirements for constructing raised beds, height suggestions, types of materials you can use, and creative tips for fitting the maximum garden capacity into small spaces—including vertical gardening. Enhanced with gorgeous photography, this book covers subjects such as growing-medium options, rooftop gardening, cost-effective gardening solutions, planting tips, watering strategies (automatic water drip systems and hand watering), and more. The process of creating and building raised beds is a cinch, too, thanks to the extensive gallery of design ideas and step-by-step projects.
This gardening strategy is taking serious root. Why? Several reasons:
· Raised beds allow gardeners to practice space efficiency as well as accessibility (the beds can be customized to be any height).
· Raised beds permit gardeners to use their own soil, and they can be designed with wheels for easy portability if partial sunlight is a problem.
· Water conservation is easier for gardeners who use raised beds.
· Pest control is assisted because most garden pests can’t make the leap up into the raised bed.
