  • Raised beds help reduce weeding as all of the soil is new and uncontaminated with weeds to begin with.
  • It is also easier to keep slugs and snails off the actual garden as you have the sides of the planter box as a barrier.
  • They certainly prevent soil compaction as the beds are designed so that you do not have to walk over the garden bed.
  • You normally get better drainage as the garden is raised up off the ground level,this is an asset for those who have water soaked soil.
  • You only have to water the actual garden itself, no water is wasted on the exterior i.e. path or surrounding lawn which is a huge issue for those on water restrictions.
