Planting Plans

Pizza lover? King of the grill? Crazy about salad? Whatever your tastes and whatever your space, we’ve got a garden plan for you.

You would enjoy gardening in a raised bed if:

  • You have some unused space in your yard (in a sunny spot).
  • You haven’t had much luck with in-ground gardens due to poor soil.
  • You like the look of a defined garden space.
  • You want your garden to double as an attractive landscape element.
  • You’d like your garden to be a little higher off the ground than a traditional bed.
