Wooden Raised Beds

Wooden Raised beds made at Newtown Community Garden from untreated Welsh larch

raised beds

Raised beds make growing your own veg and herbs easy:

You can set one up in almost any garden, on a hard surface (e.g. a patio) or a soft one (e.g. a lawn)

Fill it with a mix of good soil and compost – it will give plants the conditions they need to grow well

The sizes of the beds mean that you can reach to the middle from the sides, so you never need to tread on the soil – there is no compaction (so no digging!) and you can pack lots of plants into a small space

The extra height and friable soil in the beds makes planting, weeding and harvesting easier, and you can easily cover them with fleece or netting against the cold or pests.


Robust, long-lasting and attractive beds, built by growers for growers
