Over the years, I have shifted from in-ground gardens to raised bed gardening. We have moved around a lot over the last few years and the gardens in homes (we bought) seemed to be in very poor condition or were just too small. Raised beds are an easy way to build up boxes with new healthy soil and get great results.
I do more vegetable gardening than flower gardening now that we have invested in the raised bed gardening idea and I have consistently had the best gardens over the last few years. New raised beds require fresh healthy soil, which provides an abundance of growth. I only use SEA SOIL Potting mix or Essential Soils with SEA SOIL in my raised beds.
If you asked me which is better, raised bed gardens or in-ground gardens, I would say raised bed gardening. The height just works for me and makes me excited about gardening again.
Part of the excitement for me is my family (wife, daughter, two sons) have taken a big interest in the food we eat and where it comes from, and how it's grown. We found that there really are not many answers looking at a sticker (if you're lucky) on vegetable or fruit, which might only say what country it was grown. We are now growing a variety of vegetables in our raised bed gardens and we know exactly what it takes and what exactly goes into growing our veggies.
Oh yeah, another good thing with raised bed gardening is my dogs cannot walk or dig in my vegetable garden now! Raised bed gardens are easy to fence off to keep kids, dogs, chickens, bunnies, birds, etc. out.
Even though I am not that old, raised bed gardens to me are easier to plant, maintain, weed, till and the biggest plus (for my having arthritis) is I don't have to bend over all the way to the ground.

Not the Landfill. All of our bags, pallets and pallet wrap can be recycled. Our plastic is made from no. 4 LDPE (Low-density polyethylene) plastic which can be recycled by returning clean, dry, empty plastic bags to recycling drop off centers or retailers and municipalities (curbside collection also) that provide designated plastic bag recycling. Wooden pallets can be reused or recycled at designated wood recycling areas with your municipality.
We believe that all soils should have a required minimum set of testing standards when it comes to growing. That is why we contacted O.M.R.I. years ago to start the process of approving SEA SOIL. We regularly test our SEA SOIL for heavy metals, ecoli and even fecal coliforms to make sure SEA SOIL is the best choice for gardeners and growers.
