I am an avid raised bed gardener. Raised bed gardening makes it easier to work in the garden and control weeds and soil conditions. They are the ideal environment for using the Square Foot Gardening Method. My husband has now built me 10 4′ x 8′ raised garden beds. He created rabbit proof raised garden beds that are designed to be able to attach chicken wired along the outsides to keep the rabbits out.
