Are Raised Beds Better for Gardening?

When you are about to start a garden, you have the choice of planting in raised beds or in-ground beds. 

Raised beds can offer more advantages to you as a gardener. But this may depend on your individual wants and needs.

As the name reveals, a raised bed is a planting vessel containing soil at a level above the ground. You may create one using wood, bricks, stones, or synthetic lumber.
