Raised Garden Bed Kits

Updated on September 13, 2014

Raised Bed Gardens For an Easy Gardening Style!

If you like to garden, but hate to bend over so much to weed it or for harvesting, then a raised garden can make it all a little easier. There are raised bed garden kits that will elevate the surface of the soil just a few inches, and other kits that will bring a garden bed to waist height!

Raised bed gardens have more to commend them just saving your back. Because the mass of soil is above the rest of the ground, it allows it to warm up more quickly in the spring so you can plant earlier if you want to. It also allows for good drainage.

Another advantage is being able to put good soil and amendments in one area, without wasting them on the walkways as you do in a regular garden.

Because you can reach in from all sides, you can plant the entire surface, and not worry about leaving space to walk through the plants.

It's a super way to garden. Why not try a raised bed garden kit today?

Lifetime Raised Garden Bed Kit

I like this raised garden bed kit because it's made of tough high-density polyethylene, so unlike wood, you don't have to worry about chemicals used to keep the wood from rotting getting absorbed into your food plants. Nor do you need to be concerned about the wood rotting or cracking, or giving you splinters as you work on your garden.

It's easy to put together, Since it's stackable, you can make a deeper 4x4 bed, or two beds that are half as deep.

Another cool feature with this kit is the enclosure that will cover the bed and allow you to put your plants out earlier without worrying about the frost.

Should you decide later you want to move it, that's doable as well. You can take it apart and reassemble it in a new location.

It's just an all around nice kit for a reasonable price. Can't you just imagine it full of tomato plants or strawberries, and all that juicy goodness you can grow?

Raised Garden Bed Kit

Suncast 6 Panel Tiered Resin Raised Garden Kit

I love the way this has a higher tier on it. Looks very elegant! I don't know which I like better, with it planted in veggies, or herbs, or flowers, or what. It is just a neat raised garden bed system.

This one was placed alongside a fence, which is a pretty nifty idea as well.

That makes a nice edging bed.

This raised bed garden kit is 48-Inch by 48-Inch by 18-Inch. You can arrange the panels however you prefer. Do it like the picture, or make two beds... just whatever you like best. It's an easy DIY project.

It's got lots of good reviews. You can read all of them HERE and more information about this tiered raised garden bed kit.

Elevated Raised Bed Gardening

Want a raised bed that's even higher? And in fact, doesn't even touch the ground? Then you need an elevated garden bed.

I like these as they are made of cedar and naturally rot resistant. You can put them on a porch or patio or add them as a decorative touch in your yard somewhere. Whether you want to grow vegetables or flowers, you can pack this full of plants.

Granted, you are limited somewhat by the root depth. If your plant needs a really deep root system, then one of these wouldn't work. But that still leaves a lot of veggies that would grow nicely in this elevated raised bed garden!

Even Higher Elevated Raised Bed Garden!

Gronomics REGB 24-48 24-Inch by 48-Inch by 30-Inch Rustic Elevated Garden Bed

Want a really high raised bed garden? This elevated garden bed puts it up there about waist high, to make it really easy to week and care for the growing plants.

It is also made of 100-percent western red cedar, and the parts of the raised garden bed kit slide together easily. I like that it's actually made in the USA as well.

For someone in a wheelchair, or that doesn't want to bend over to work in their garden, this would be a really good choice.

All New Square Foot Gardening

If you're new to intensive gardening techniques, this is a classic book on the right kind of gardening techniques to use for a raised bed garden.

You don't have to do a lot of digging is one big advantage.

These gardens also work well "going vertical" ... using a net or trellis of some kind to allow plants to vine their way upwards.

This book is good for both the newbie or the experienced gardener.

Anyone can use this concept. It makes gardening a fun way to garden!

Raised Garden Bed Kit in a POT!

Get a Big Bag Bed!

Instead of a raised garden bed made of wood or plastic boards, here's one that is actually a sturdy, reusable bag. Whoever named it must have had a sense of humor. Got to love that alliteration, Big Bag Bed!! Sounds like something out of a fairy tale... look out for the Big Bag Bed!

But it's no fairy tale these are a cool way to get a raised bed in your yard or garden, and quite economical as well!

This is a good sized growing bed, being 50 inches wide x 12 inches tall, thus giving you 13.5 square feet of growing area. So you've got a good bit of growing space there!

It's weatherproof, and has good drainage.

The most common comment about these raised garden bed pots is that they are so EASY TO USE. Just put it where you want it, put the dirt in it and plant!

As with other raised beds, the dirt will warm up faster, and drain more quickly as well. It's a great way to grow a small vegetable garden, or maybe some herbs. You can even put a patch of flowers somewhere in your yard, whever you want it!
