At Action, we stock Easy Reach Garden Beds which are the perfect solution when you are faced with limited gardening space, or if you find it difficult to get down and work at ground height. Manufactured from Zincalume, Colorbond or Galvanised Steel, Easy Reach Garden Beds will also last you years.
If you’re new to gardening, start with just one garden bed. You’ll be amazed by how much it will produce and how much easier it is to manage. Gardening in raised beds lets you concentrate your efforts into a smaller area, which makes weeding, watering and tending to a lot easier.
There are many choices, but the main thing is to use a variety of materials. Beware of the stuff sold as topsoil; it’s hard to determine the quality of what you’re getting. For an Easy Reach Garden Bed, we suggest using no more than 2 to 3 inches of ‘topsoil,’ then filling it the rest of the way with other materials.
Some of these other materials include composted manure, various types of compost, shredded bark mulch and ‘black dirt.’ You can also scavenge a lot from your yard. Grass clippings, fallen leaves, household compost and sawdust are all good additions.
Fill the bed to the top, and mix these materials together as you go. And don’t forget to maintain that foot of mulch around each bed to keep the grass at bay.
