Raised beds made from corrugated steel are very popular. They are lightweight yet strong. The corrugated sheets are riveted together, giving a strong, neat joint.

The top edge of the steel is rounded to prevent injury.

On  longer beds, cross braces are used to stop the bed from bending outwards.

We paint the inside of the beds with a rubberised bitumen paint to prevent corrosion of the steel.

 

ADAVANTAGES:

They look great. They keep bugs out. Less  bending. No problem with surrounding grass growing into a bed.

They drain well.

They are light weight and moveable.

They can make a feature of a vegetable garden.

Pets are less likely to damage plants and gardens.

The width of the raised bed allows comfortable access to the bed.

There is no compaction from people standing on the bed, this means that the soil in your raised garden bed will be loose and well aerated for years.

Water is saved as all water stays below the plants. In a conventional low bed the water will spread out underground and go outside the reach of plants in the bed.

 

SCHOOLS

Raised garden beds are great for Schools as they are easier to garden in and to keep looking neat. If Children find the gardening experience easier and more productive, they are more likely to be inspired and to take up gardening at home. A group of children can be made responsible for a bed, and it a nice manageable area.

 

WHAT TO PLANT

Raised garden beds are good for vegetables and herbs. If placed against a wall, tomatoes can be planted at the back, and shorter vegetables in the front. It is easier to mulch plants in a raised bed, as the mulch is contained by the sides.

 

TRELLISING AND SUPPORTS

It is easy to put in poles or stands to support climbing plants, or to drape plant netting to protect vegetables from birds and insects.
