The Benefits of the Raised Garden

They help keep the pathway weeds from your garden, provide better drainage, prevent soil compaction, and are a barrier to pests such as slugs and snails. The side barriers are a good way to prevent soil erosion during heavy rains. These soils are warmer and better drained, and this allows gardeners to plant earlier in the season.
