Frequently Asked Questions
How much space should I have around my Raised Bed for proper access?
You should leave about 2ft of space around your raised bed to allow for easy tending, harvesting, watering, and weeding.
Does my raised bed need to be in full sunlight?

What are the benefits of Raised Garden Beds?
Raised garden beds allow you to elevate your planting area off the ground, giving you more control over your soil composition, efficiency with growing space, consistent soil temperature via insulation, weed control, and more!

Should I Mulch my garden bed?
Mulching around the plants can help the surrounding soil retain moisture and prevent root systems from drying up. When Mulching, make sure to leave space around the stem of your plants to prevent mold formation on the stem.
How far apart should I Sow my Seeds?
The spacing of your seeds is specific to the plants that you are growing. Refer to our Know & Grow Guide for plant specific information.

We recommend using a 1:1 mixture of compost/manure and light potting soil/screened topsoil for raised garden beds. Kellogg Raised Garden Bed & Potting Mix, Bonnie Harvest Select Raised Bed Soil, and Miracle Gro Potting Mix are all great options to fill Raised Beds. The key is to have a light soil mix, with the appropriate pH and plenty of nutrients.
