    Here are some of the great benefits a raised garden can bring you:

    • No weeding! Weeds don’t grow in my raised garden beds like they do on the ground or in traditional raised beds

    • No bending over or backaches

    • Great for apartments, town homes, small yards, and patios

    • Put it anywhere the sun shines

    • No dogs, gophers, rabbits, armadillos or critters getting your garden

    • Reduced insects and ants

    • Take it with you when you move – a raised garden bed is completely portable

    • No roto-tilling or preparing the ground, use nutrient rich soil right from the start

    • Great for the elderly

    • Easy access from all angles

    • Great for people in wheelchairs or walkers

    • Plus, save on your grocery budget by growing your own food
