Ways to build raised garden beds

There are many ways you can build raised garden beds, whether it is a raised vegetable garden bed or a raised flower bed. Some materials available to create a raised bed are better than others in terms of quality, strength and texture.

Many reusable materials can be used to create the raised beds and this will also help the environment in recycling the unused materials. We might find brick blocks or cinder blocks around and they can be used to build the same effectively. You may also help your neighbors with their discarded materials to be used for your raised garden beds.

Some creative ideas can be used to select the materials like using old empty bottles buried to the neck in the soil as a raised bed. But you need to be careful while using them as they may break into small pieces with the possibility of them getting into the soil. Bottles are also very effectively used in Hydroponic Bottle Gardening.
