The raised bed garden design makes it easy to grow a lot of vegetables in a small space. You can eliminate and manage a raised bed easily, and you can get a bountiful crop of it if you want to design it with care. It is important to consider the location of the bed, the construction and the layout of the plantation in advance to enjoy the greatest possible harvest.
Find a place that will receive at least six, and preferably eight to ten, hours of full sun every day. Vegetable plants do better with at least eight hours of sunshine each day. If they receive less, they cannot grow well or produce a little. A nearby water fountain will also make your gardening easier and more convenient, as it will be a position next to a garden shed or storage area and a composting bin or pile.

The beds can be constructed from cedar, redwood or a recycled wood product such as Trex. Other options include blocks of bricks, stone, and ash, although these can get too hot in hot climates and the plants overheat. Do not use treated wood, as the fungicide used in it can seep into the garden floor and mix in your vehicles. Build your beds in a size small enough that you can easily reach the center of the bed to plant, brush and harvest. Beds should be at least 10 inches deep to grow most plants, and possibly deeper for root vegetables such as potatoes, carrots or beets.
