Raised Garden Beds
Make the most of a courtyard, balcony or small outdoor space by setting up raised garden beds for herbs, vegetables or flowers. A raised planter box will allow you to create a contained, rich soil plot, perfect for growing your own vegetables and herbs for dinner! Raised garden beds are available in a range of different materials and designs. A raised planter box can be individually designed and constructed from recycled materials, whilst others will be ready made for immediate use. Raised garden beds made from iron are lighter and more easily portable, but wooden beds can be better for drainage. You can also purchase the various parts you need to assemble your own raised planter box online via eBay. There is a considerable range in terms of both new and second-hand garden beds available for online purchase, so you may potentially end up with a completely unique design by a keen fellow gardener for a fantastic bargain price!
