Gardening is an art that can be master over the years. A beautiful well-maintained garden has lots of effort that goes into. For few months, I have been into the practice of raising beds for my rooftop garden. I had gone through many literature on gardening and videos that actually explained how it works. I am so pleased to share this post on raising cheap garden beds for the reason, I was so joyed doing this part and the environmental benefits it gives you. Preparing a garden bed is very expensive, but there are certain methods through which one can have them raised in cheap and economical way.
Recycled wood– When you aim to raise garden beds, do not rush for costly wood in the market. This might kill your savings completely. Instead, you can use recycled wood available in railway sleepers or salvage yards. You will need the boards and the skate to attachment them together, so calculate your math and purchase according to your requirement.
Hunt down the Weed- Weeds is the main culprits to destroy your raised beds. The best thing I have done to get rid of them is to lay the cardboard and newspapers on the base after soaking them in the water for longer durations. This practice will keep the weeds and grass at bay.
Healthy Soil- The most important thing one must remember is to have a healthy soil for their gardens. Do not hesitate on spending amount on soil. If you go for a cheap deal, you might end up with mire of sand content that may not help to raise your garden beds.
One you have the soil ready, start laying the soil on the beds. Once they are laid properly, give surplus time for aeration by watering right quantity of water. A healthy garden is a result of healthy soil. Once your beds are ready with soil, you can go ahead with sampling the seeds. However, the best way to save your expenses is to grow your own seeds rather than purchasing them. This will result in more healthy growth of the samplings. Most of the seeds purchased fail germination resulting in wastage of money. Either you have to purchase those seeds from the authorised dealer, nursery or to raise them yourself.
