Have you ever thought to build a Raised Bed Garden, but you don't have any idea on how to get started with? Do you have small space? Do you think your land is unsuitable? Raised-bed gardening is resorted when adequate gardening spaces are not available or when available soil is inappropriate for gardening. It gives multiple advantages to gardeners like improved soil, suitable planting time, simplified weed/pest control and most of all, increased yield. Its advantages far outweigh its disadvantages and is thus a preferred method of gardening, in limited spaces, for amateurs as well as professionals. The development of raised beds requires an understanding of complex farming systems that use many of the methods and principles of permaculture. Employed effectively, they can assist in controlled recycling, avoidance of soil degradation, conserve its nutrients, and development of a sophisticated irrigation system. Inside this illustrated guide, you will understand the involved techniques. An effort has been made to impart an understanding of raised bed gardening in a methodical and easy to learn manner. The reader will be able to conveniently grasp a complete understanding of the subject and embark on the project with complete confidence.

But it's true potential can only be realized, if it is undertaken, after attaining thorough understanding, attained through reading a structured material, to guide you through this truly technical nature project.

When the inspiration hits to start an organic garden, many novices could benefit from a guidebook that speaks directly to their enthusiasm, their goals, and, of course, their need for solid information that speaks a newbie’s language—from the most trusted source for organic gardening methods. In Rodale’s Basic Organic Gardening, general garden-building skills (from "Do I need to dig?" to "Where do I dig?") and specific techniques (from "How do I plant a seed?" to "How much should I water?") are presented in growing-season order—from garden planning and planting to growing and harvesting. Many other need-to-know topics like soil, compost, seeds, pest control, and weeds are explained in simple language to ensure success, even on a small scale, on the first try. More than 100 common garden terms are defined, and Smart Starts sidebars offer doable projects to build confidence and enthusiasm for expanding a garden when a gardener is ready. A flower, vegetable, and herb finder highlights easycare plants with good track records. Plus, there are no-dig garden methods, simple garden layouts, and tips and hints inspired by the most popular page views on OrganicGardening.com. With a "no question is unwelcome" approach, a troubleshooting section lessens frustrations and encourages experimentation. Rodale’s Basic Organic Gardening is everything a beginning gardener (or one who’s new to gardening organically) needs to get growing and keep a garden going strong all season.
