Getting Creative with your garden layout!

Field or Flat Stones make excellent raised beds! They are long lasting and durable. However, once established you don't want to move them. The stones can be free standing or held together wih mortar. Some unique stones planting beds feature a 3-to-4 foot tall wall with a space in the center for soil and plants. This create a lanting space thats potected from animas and warms up quickly in the spring. Other similar meterials such as concrete blocks, bicks and pavers can be used. In a small bed, remember concrete materials can leak like into the soial and rise the pH.
