Raised garden beds are a great place for your vegetable garden. Keeping things organized and at a comfortable working height, raised beds are both practical and attractive. The folks over at Mooses of the North have put together a great how-to that can get your garden organized in no time.
A over at Mooses of the North describes his quest for an inexpensive solution for his garden:
I looked around a lot for information about building raised beds. They can be as simple as a bunch of 2-by-whatevers butted together, or as complicated as...well...how much money do you have to blow? As it happens, and a recent run through the neighborhood I passed by a reasonably attractive raised bed that someone was selling. At only 2'x2', and with an asking price of $125, it was out of the question. But, it looked pretty good, so I mulled it over and came up with something similar.
Using cedar and some elbow grease they have created beds that are good for the environment and great for the look of their backyard.
