Ana's beds from fence boards are cheaper, if you can make that work for you, go for it. But, we imagined a kid sitting or walking or skateboarding along the edge of our garden and seeing a split or bowed fence board and earth and seedlings pouring out.

Building Raised Beds Raised beds have become very popular recently and you will need to decide whether you go for this option.

To add these climbers, I needed to create a raised bed. I thought long and hard about how I wanted to do this. Ideally I would have loved to have made it out of railway sleepers.I love the thickness and aged look of these, but at £10-£20 a sleeper, it was hugely beyond our price range.
The open-channel design of our raised garden bed boards insulates the soil in your raised garden bed. Soil stays warmer in the early Spring and Fall and cooler in the Summer. Regulated soil temperature allows you to grow earlier and longer into the season and assists plants in growing stronger and healthier, with more yield.
Putting a raised bed on a deck is a very cool idea. It puts your vegetables closer to where you want them right outside your door which obviously will be very convenient. Convenient is an awesome word when applied to a garden since it usually makes for a better maintained garden.
