When selecting a raised garden bed, consider the style, such as metal sides or a wood frame (or both), and what you plan to grow. This metal and wood planter, sold by Gardeners' Supply, is 45 inches long and more than 15 inches wide, plus it is more than 15 inches deep to hold flowers, herbs and vegetables.
The homeowners wanted raised beds where they could plant annuals, vegetables, herbs and succulents, so designers added a series of steel planters to meet their needs. Since the space is visually connected to home office, the homeowners can enjoy the lovely view of their home grown goodies while they work.
Raised kitchen garden planters made the sloped front yard into a pretty and functional space. Redwood steps and gravel patches ease access between the beds. And the whole lovely scene can also be enjoyed from the shade of the porch.
This modern trough-style planter can be placed in gardens, and along driveways and walkways to grow flowers, herbs and vegetables. The raised planter, made of Zincalume steel and sold by Gardener's Supply, is 15 inches high.
Spaces underneath the deck can be unsightly, so screen the view under the deck with vines on hanging screens, says Holly Brooks of King Landscaping in Atlanta. If you enjoy gardening, animal troughs also can serve as planters, instead of traditional raised garden beds.
