Raised bed gardening – High Plains Journal: Horticulture

By Ray Ridlen

Building a gardening spot above ground level has many advantages. It can be built on top of poor soil areas and have perfect medium for growing flowers, vegetables or whatever crop you desire. In Oklahoma we generally have soil that needs to be amended. Building a raised bed allows you to create the perfect soil for your crop. You can also decide the location of the bed. You may place it in full sun, part sun or full shade.
