This was my first organic, raised garden bed and compost bin. There are many benefits to having a raised bed such as: reduced back strain, better water rentention, more growing space, warmer soil earlier in the season, less soil erosion and better drainage. Raised beds warm up more quickly in the spring and drain better, allowing for a longer growing season and better growing conditions.
