Raised Gardens

Adding Raised Gardens

Many areas in the South East of England suffer from poor soil, and you may be finding it difficult to grow certain plants or vegetables in your backyard. Raised gardens are easy to maintain, and allow you to plant a wider choice of greenery in your garden. Floral & Hardy can design an outdoor space which has raised gardens as an interesting focal point, or to add colour to drab areas. Adding raised gardens is a good way to introduce different types of soil in your garden, and to make the best use of your outdoor space.

Why Choose Raised Beds?

There are many reasons that people choose raised beds for their garden. Whether it’s raised vegetable beds or planters, there are many benefits to using them instead of traditional planting methods.

Soil types

A common reason for adding raised garden beds is to overcome problems with the soil. Floral & Hardy work with many clients in the South-East whose gardens have rocky or clay-heavy soil. Planting in this soil is difficult, but adding a raised garden means that you can add the soil that suits the kind of plants you’re trying to grow. If you’ve had trouble getting plants established in the past, then some raised beds could help.


Poor drainage is another reason why your past gardening attempts might have been unsuccessful. Areas with heavy clay soil can often drain poorly, and therefore adding some raised gardens with proper drainage can make gardening much easier.


Raised beds can also help to save space in your garden. Plants have deeper roots, and you can grow a higher yield of plants in a smaller space. Therefore, they’re great for gardens where space is at a premium.

Easy maintenance

If you’re not naturally green-fingered, then adding some raised beds helps keep garden maintenance to a minimum. It usually just means some watering and regular weeding, and Floral & Hardy will be able to create raised beds that require minimal maintenance. Raised gardens are also popular for those with mobility problems, as it means you can enjoy gardening without too much bending or kneeling.

Garden design

There are lots of ways that raised beds could be incorporated into a contemporary or traditionally style garden. They can be installed in small gardens to allow for dense planting or can be placed in large gardens to break up space and make it more interesting. Floral & Hardy will be able to discuss some ways to incorporate raised beds into your garden and make them part of your overall garden design.

Raised beds are ideal if you want to grow vegetables and fruit, because they add extra drainage functions and make it easy for you to add new soil types to your garden. In a world where everything seems to be getting more expensive, it’s always a good idea to search for ways to cut costs.

Raised garden beds are perfect if you want to enjoy all the benefits homegrown produce offers your family, without the hassle of rearranging your entire garden.

The Benefits of Using a Raised Garden to Grow Fruit & Veg

There are so many fruit and vegetables you can grow in raised garden beds, so there are plenty of options to experiment and get more adventurous with your gardening.

Popular options for fruit include:

  • Currants
  • Strawberries
  • Raspberries
  • Blackberries

If you’re more interested in creating a raised vegetable garden then you’re in luck. You can grow most vegetables in raised planters, including potatoes, carrots, turnips, parsnips, and everything in-between!
