The Best Place To Place The Raised Garden Beds

Whether you want to grow lodgings, vegetables or ornamental plants, the garden beds plan must consider the location. Proper planning of your raised garden bed can promote plant growth and ensure that each variety can obtain the required light, water and mature space. Considering the location of the bulge can also reduce pest problems, nutritional deficiencies and reduce your workload.

Plants have very specific requirements, depending on the variety. For example, placing plants in low light places limits growth and productivity. Similarly, placing plants in places where the soil is too wet or too dry can affect overall health. The convex layout needs to consider all plant factors. These can be found on the seed package or on the plant label.

The optimal location for a raised garden bed depends on many factors.

 

Sunshine
Soil porosity
soil texture
Soil nutrient level
Soil pH
Storm dew
Water availability
Previous pest problems
Distance from home
Close to trees
Microclimate

Assessing the site before planning a raised garden bed will help prevent future problems that may endanger plant health, or simply make the care bed difficult. Drawing up a plan is a good start, just like paying attention to the amount of sunshine throughout the day.

Garden bed plan tips

Once you have considered all the factors, you can mitigate some situations. Soil health is a big problem, but it is fairly easy to modify. Low nutrient soils benefit from organic materials or slow release fertilizers. If gravel materials are used before planting, those with poor drainage will have better penetration. Soil pH can be adjusted with lime or sulfur. The soil test will tell you what you need to add to make the soil sweet or acidic. The target soil pH is between 6.0 and 7.0. If the convex layout is far away from the water source, install drip irrigation pipes to wet each plant.

Plan your raised garden bed

After determining the best location for the raised garden bed, it is time to build it. Many gardeners just pile the soil into a rapidly rising bed, but as time goes on, it will usually be eroded, and the locally applied water will roll off the bed. Bordering the bed keeps the soil within the site in some way and helps to retain water. The border need not be gaudy. Items such as old bricks or cement blocks, wood, rocks, or logs are easily available and inexpensive and may not be beautiful. Galvanized steel raised garden bed is a good choice. The open bottom also allows earthworms to enter the bed, and sends the excrement of organic earthworms to plants. This is the best organic fertilizer by far, with enough drainage area. After you make the bed, start to grow!
