In the garden, there are many working situations in a bent position for a long time: sowing vegetables, weeding plantations, preparing the soil, harvesting beans … tiring and uncomfortable, being lowered to cultivate your vegetable garden generally causes back pain quite quickly , especially if your gestures and postures are not correct! By putting the ground at your height, the raised vegetable garden allows you to grow your vegetables upright with ease.
The three big advantages of raised vegetable gardens!
-Little space: Raised vegetable gardens take up very little space and allow you to grow vegetables and fruits regardless of the space available. Despite their small size, they make it possible to obtain abundant harvests.
-Whatever the ground: Filled with a balanced substrate, raised vegetable gardens allow gardening in places where soil is absent or of poor quality (clayey, compacted, too sandy, etc.).
-Less effort: Raised vegetable gardens can be very high above ground level and allow gardening without breaking your back, small in size and aesthetic, they are easy to maintain. Pests and weeds can be more easily controlled there.
