Raised Garden Beds allow you to grow your own herbs and vegetables easily and comfortably. It doesn’t matter what your existing soil quality is like, you can now grow in quality, productive and water efficient soil and cut out most of the back-breaking digging.

The soil will never become compacted and your produce garden will produce healthier crops. You will also be conserving water and recycling organic household waste, not to mention the satisfaction of feeding your family from your own home produce. They are lightweight and easily moved around your garden when they are empty… perfect for renters who want to grow their own produce. Just empty them and take them with you when you move.

Raised beds are ideal for No-Dig Gardening. Using the no–dig method, crop rotation is no longer an issue as you are continually adding and replenishing the soil with each new crop. Your soil does not need to ‘rest’ between crops so you are harvesting more vegetables all year round. They can also be placed anywhere in your garden, and can be stepped into a sloping garden. Raised garden beds offer gardening opportunities for the people with restricted mobility, bad backs, young children and people with disabilities.

Other benefits include:

  • Ideal for small gardens and wind prone, open areas
  • No more bending or kneeling
  • Frost and wind protection for young seedlings
  • Provides a barrier for snails, slugs and pets
  • Water efficient gardening
  • Can be easily positioned (or moved) anywhere in your garden
  • Easily netted for young plant protection
  • Ideal to increase your growing area for a small space
