Raise Your Glass for Raised Bed Gardens

Raised bed gardens offer a simple and innovative way to create a healthy and productive garden.

Raised beds can be installed for a range of people in a variety of locations. From apartments with only small patios, to people with large back yards, they are a popular choice.

Benefits of Raised Bed Gardens

  • More control over the location of the garden.
  • Ability to choose the best soil for your particular plants.
  • More efficient draining.
  • Can be easier on backs and knees due to less bending and stooping.
  • Easier to keep out weeds.
  • Prevent soil compaction.
  • Provide good drainage and serve as a barrier to pests such as slugs and snails.
  • Sides of the beds keep your valuable garden soil from being eroded or washed away during heavy rains.
  • Ability to plant earlier in the season because the soil is warmer and better drained when it is above ground level.

Here at GCG, our raised beds just keep getting better.

Raised bed installations include root-proof bed frames constructed from Vermont-sourced cedar, trellising to support vining plants like tomatoes and beans, drip irrigation with an automated timer, and our custom-blended organic soil designed for successful edibles growing.
