5 Easy #DIY Raised #Garden Bed Projects that are Attractive and Practical!

Raised garden beds are a fantastic way to utilize yard spaces, large and small. Whether, planning to add new vegetable beds, a herb garden, or flowers for you, the #hummingbirds, butterflies, and #bees, the plants (and insects) will thank you as they flourish from the many benefits of growing in raised gardens.


Raised garden designs can be as simple and inexpensive of a #DIY project, as an arrangement of straw bales, recycled wood, or basic pallet garden, to more ‘concrete’ options including the use of cinder blocks, paving stones, bricks, and rock.

In all reality, wild and crazy gardeners out there will make a raised garden bed from just about anything they can get their dirty gloves on, that will hold soil! Design ideas are endless.

In my search for raised garden ideas to incorporate into my own edible garden designs for the upcoming growing season, a handful of basic ideas have moved into my “Favorite” pile. These guys made the cut primarily because of the cost, labor intensity (or lack, there of…), sustainable attributes, and overall, attractiveness.
