  1. I have a farm and cannot stress enough the value of good soil. It doesn’t
    just “happen”. For raised beds. 1/3 top soil, 1/3 sand, 1/3 rotting leaves
    or compost. THEN compost cooking scraps (peels, veggies, etc) all winter
    and spring. (I gather in buckets on the back porch and empty every two or
    three days – we cook a lot,) I also add layers of leaves and ashes from
    the corn bonfire. Your only problem may be that the soil is TOO strong,
    especially if you live in the South and have bugs year round.

  4. I don’t like this way. I guess is good for some but for me it’s the roots
    of trees is why I want raised. If I was to dig down what is the point in a
    box?

  5. Favorably, these basic steps are merely suitable especially for beginners
    who has less knowledge on creating raised vegetable garden bed.
    Nonetheless, the information are being presented very well.

  8. Great vid and tips! Question: What do you think about putting one of those
    weed protection sheets underneath the raised garden bed? Will that hinder
    the roots? Is it okay to mix the dirt with compost/manure/etc?

  12. Great video. Thanks for the ideas. I’m planning on making my raised garden
    bed 4 by 10 so my son can reach the middle. It should be a fun project for
    the two of us this fall and something to look forward to when spring comes.

  21. Negative Comments!!! This project is very simple. If you think that you
    cannot handle cutting and screwing together a few boards then gardening
    probably gonna be too difficult as well. The steps of making a garden box
    are not unnecessary. You cannot just use any wood or screws. It must be
    naturally rot resistant wood and outdoor screws. Treated lumber has
    chemicals that will harm your soil and veggies. By the way raised beds are
    better than traditional crop rows-less compaction & better drainage
