raised bed

It is undeniable that more and more people are combatting the large supermarket chains and becoming more self-sufficient; Raised beds are the perfect solution, allowing even a concrete yard to be turned into a flourishing vegetable patch. Our timber raised beds are perfect for creating a fertile growing environment wherever you wish by piling soil and compost into a timber structure to create a raised platform for growing. Our raised beds are also stackable and come in a variety of sizes so you can really explore your options!

There are several benefits to choosing a raised bed to help with your growing as opposed to just a run of the mill soil bed:

Firstly, by having the beds raised off the ground, less strain is put on the lower back whilst gardening. Whilst this may seem like a small issue, over time years’ worth of grafting in the garden can take its toll, so a raised bed can make it that bit easier. As the beds can be stacked as high as you like, this will also help gardeners with disabilities or restricted movement still get the most of their gardens.

Due to its raised height, any excess water in the bed will be drained out, leaving perfect growing conditions for your plants. Having your plants raised off the ground also means they are less likely to attract slugs or even weeds.

One of the main uses of raised beds is to create a growing environment tailored to what you wish to grow, that you may not be able to find in the soil in your garden. Some plants require specific pH level in order to grow and it is much easier to put your required soil/compost into a raised bed rather than re-soiling your garden! One of the advantages to tailoring your growing environment is the added bonus of companion planting. Companion planting is planting two plants side-by-side that help each other to grow.

All of our timber is sourced from sustainable sources, treated with a preservative and built with zinc plated fittings for durability, so you won’t need to worry about needing to replace them every season!
