Raised Vegetable Garden Ideas

There are so many wonderful vegetable garden ideas.

If you want to grow a vegetable garden and add beauty to your backyard at the same time, you’ll love these ideas. There are plenty of ideas for small backyard gardens, raised garden beds, garden beds with fences, unique metal garden beds, and vertical gardening.

One thing to keep in mind when designing your own vegetable garden is the type of garden bed you’d like.

Raised beds are common because they add more beauty and tend to be easier to upkeep. There are many great plants to grow in raised garden beds, although taller crops like corn don’t do as well. I highly recommend adding some flowers that are easy to grow to your garden for an even prettier raised bed.

If you’re renting or have a small urban garden, fabric garden beds are awesome!

When the season is done or you have to move, you can pack them up. If you get snowy or very rainy winters they’ll last longer placed in a garage over winter. These raised garden beds from Pannow are made of a proprietary fabric material. These beds are highly durable, UV resistant, with exceptional air flow. This helps the soil and root systems and allows excess moisture to easily drain away.

I love raised beds that have double height.

Although they take up more soil, they’re also taller for easier gardening and harvesting. The one below is from Mill Hollow Works.

Buy an 8 x 12 Prefab Garden Kit with Deer Fence! This is such a neat vegetable garden design. Deer can jump very high, but need space on the other side to land. This design that you can buy from Outdoor Living Today is fantastic!

    • Hi Ciara! Great question. I meant store the whole thing (soil and all) in a garage or covered area. If it’s exposed to the elements (if you do get snow and lots of rain for example) during the off-season it won’t last as long. The water can expand when freezing potentially causing damage. I hope that answer helps!

  1. Thank you, Isis Loran, for putting together everything in the raised garden bed for plants. I think you have covered all the major points in this article, I will share this with my network as well.
