Starting a garden is no easy task, and it can be especially challenging if the terrain surrounding your property isn't amenable to the types of plants you'd like to grow. Enter the raised garden bed — a boxy unit that allows you to plant flowers, herbs, and vegetables just about anywhere outdoors. Here are 10 raised garden beds for your plants to call home.
An amazing value, this composite-wood unit is easy to assemble and perfect for smaller-sized outdoor spaces. At this price, it can be bought in multiples for creating a beautifully lush garden where there was just hard ground before.
This three-tier setup is made from rot-resistant cedar, and simply slides into place without any tools or construction know-how! Each of the slim rows can fit a different variety of plant so they can coexist without overpowering each other (we're looking at you, mint).
