Ten Raised Garden Beds To Inspire You

Raised garden beds, they seem to be the way to grow these days, so if you have been thinking of making some for yourself and are looking for some inspiration, look no further. 

Use logs to impart a rustic feel to your raised beds.

You could also get that rustic look by using old corrugated galvanised steel in different shapes.

This  gorgeous garden is actually part of a school playground in Clapham, London,  I think all schools should follow this example.

Try using different shapes in the garden to add some visual interest like this garden designed by Casa Smith Designs.
The owners of this garden have planted a dwarf lemon tree in the centre of the star bed.

Using retaining wall blocks makes it easy to add curves to raised beds.

  1. What great ideas, Jan. I agree with you that every school should have food gardens, and thankfully my boy's does. Chickens, too. All to learn about where food comes from and what goes into growing what we eat. Meg:)

    1. How lucky are your boys, they are getting an education that most kids will miss out on.

  2. Appreciate your ideas. In this world now a days all food has become poison by adding many medicines to get more yield. So when we grow in our houses we will not add too much of medicine for the yield and that will be healthy one.

    1. It is terrible the amount of chemicals used to grow food these days which is why I try to grow as much as possible for myself. Thanks for dropping by my blog, I'm glad that you enjoyed the ideas I shared.
