Do you want a garden but don't have the space? Or you just don't want to mess up your yard with a plow! Raised beds are a great way to raise a garden if you don't have a lot of space. They are also great if you live where the soil is rocky or full of clay.
The advantages of doing a raised bed garden are an expanded growing season, easy maintenance and high yields. They can easily be incorporated into your current landscape and be placed close to your home. For more information about raised beds, check out this Missouri Extension publication at
