Raised beds

One advantage of raised beds is that they are not only suitable for gardens. They are the optimal solution for urban gardening. They give you the opportunity to be a gardener even in small, urban areas. You can also create a bed on your balcony or terrace at home.
Raised beds also have advantages in the garden. These include, for example, the comfortable and back-friendly working height. This also makes it more difficult for voracious snails to get in.
In contrast to a regular garden bed, you can adjust the composition of the filling exactly to the needs of the plants. If you fill the raised bed according to the layer system, decomposition processes take place in it, releasing heat. The higher temperatures provide your plants with optimal growing conditions.
Last but not least, raised beds are visually very appealing. They allow you a versatile garden design and you can use them to separate different areas or hide smaller eyesores behind them.
When choosing a location, the light conditions are important. These are optimal if you place the raised bed in a north-south direction. Make sure that no trees or other plants cast a shadow over it and thus steal the light from the plants. The location should also be protected from the wind as much as possible.
To save you a little watering work, I recommend that you set up the bed near a water supply if possible.
Do not place the raised bed on the balcony or terrace directly on the flooring. The subsoil partly prevents excess water from draining away, which can lead to waterlogging.
By the way, ideal conditions are offered by a location in the greenhouse, where it is much better protected from the weather than outside.
Raised beds are made of metal, wood, stone or plastic. Each of the materials has certain advantages and disadvantages.
Metal, for example aluminium, steel, stainless steel or corrugated sheet metal, is extremely weather-resistant and requires no extra lining inside. However, it is not everyone's cup of tea visually.
Wood has a very beautiful natural look. However, the material is more maintenance-intensive than the other variants. You have to paint it regularly with a suitable wood preservative to prevent the formation of a patina and other weather-related changes to the natural material.
Raised beds made of stone look natural and rustic at the same time. Natural stone has the advantage that it stores heat, which has a positive effect on plant growth. In addition, the beds are very stable. However, if you often change your garden design, a solid granite version is not the best choice.
Plastic, on the other hand, is lightweight, easy to maintain and weather-resistant. However, synthetic materials can leach into the soil and thus the plants. Especially if you want to grow crops, this is not ideal.
Because of the heat generated in the raised bed, you can start planting in spring a little earlier than with a vegetable bed on the ground. The planting time for various vegetable plants then extends through the summer to autumn.
With a suitable acrylic or glass top you can turn your raised bed into a cold frame and start planting even earlier.
In the following table I provide you with some planting suggestions for the individual months:
Month
Vegetable plants
End of March / beginning of April
Radish
Peas
Potatoes
End of April
Leeks
Onions
May
Cucumbers
Tomatoes
Zucchini
June / July
Cauliflower
Kohlrabi
Broccoli
August
Kale
Radicchio
Endive
September / October
Celery
Arugula
Parsley
You can also harvest delicious fruit from your raised beds - strawberries, for example. Depending on the variety, you can plant them either in April or in August and September.
If you want to use your raised bed for herbs, plant the seeds in spring.
In addition to useful plants, you can of course also design your raised bed with flowers. When sowing, follow the recommended times that also apply to the regular flower bed. You can plant bulbs as early as autumn and then enjoy the first flowers in spring.
It is best to fill your raised bed with compost or high-quality potting soil. How many litres you need depends on the size of the raised bed and whether you fill it according to the layer system or, which is the better option on terraces and balconies, completely with substrate.
To find out how much soil you need, calculate the volume using the formula width x height x depth in centimetres. If you divide this value by 1,000, you will know approximately how much soil will fit.
If you fill your raised bed in layers, only the top one will be made of soil. This should be about 15 centimetres. So the calculation at this point is: width x 15 cm x depth.
This calculation only works for raised beds with a square or rectangular shape. However, you can find helpful volume calculators online for planters in a wide variety of shapes.
For optimal growing conditions, choose the layer system when filling your raised bed. This consists of five layers. Each of them should be about 20 centimetres thick. Here is the order from bottom to top:
coarse pruning and branches
shredded prunings
compost
mature compost
Planting substrate
Due to the layer system, the roots are optimally aerated and find plenty of valuable nutrients.
If the planting of your raised bed consists only of ornamental plants, you can also simply give just like in a planter box or in pots only potting soil.
While metal and stone have no problem with moisture escaping from the soil, raised beds made of wood need to be lined with foil to protect them from this and thus from rotting. Without this, your painstakingly constructed bed will only last about five years.
Pond liner is well suited. However, you should not choose PVC foil. The polyvinyl chloride variants contain a relatively large number of plasticizers that can dissolve out and pass into the soil and plants. Films made of polyethylene (PE) or ethylene-propylene-diene rubber (EPDM) are more harmless and ecological.
Even more suitable for lining is bubble foil. In most cases, this does not require plasticizers - but you can also find products made of PVC here. In addition, the dimpled structure allows air to circulate in the bed and acts as drainage. Apply the foil with the studs facing the wall.
The right combination is particularly important for useful plants. Different vegetable plants, for example, have different nutrient requirements and in turn supply the soil with different substances. This means that they can either support or inhibit each other's growth. Mixed culture tables tell you which vegetables form a good neighbourly relationship and which should rather not share a home.
For both crops and flowers, the rule is: put large plants in the middle and smaller ones around the edges. This prevents them from taking each other's light.
To enjoy a sea of flowers, plant flowers that bloom at the same time together in the bed.
There are no raised beds that are exclusively intended for the balcony or terrace. But there are models that are particularly well suited for this.
These are usually somewhat smaller than raised beds for the garden. This makes sense not only in terms of the footprint, which is usually somewhat smaller on the balcony and terrace. Especially on the balcony, it is important that you keep the load-bearing capacity in mind. Raised beds plus contents weigh quite a few kilos. A large model with a corresponding capacity can, under certain circumstances, bring the statics to their limits.
Variants with feet or even legs, so-called table beds, are advantageous. On the one hand, they do not require any underlay, which is a must for beds that stand directly on the balcony or terrace floor. On the other hand, they provide a comfortable working height despite their smaller dimensions.
If you are looking for a raised bed that is suitable for the balcony or terrace, you can specify this in the filter options in our price comparison. This way, only suitable offers will be displayed.
If you are not only a hobby gardener, but also an experienced do-it-yourselfer, there are various ways to build your very own raised bed. As a rule, you don't need a lot of accessories. You can find all the parts and tools online or at the DIY store.
Simple DIY raised bed made of wood: For the bed itself, you only need four posts and boards or decking boards for the walls. It's best to choose untreated wood. The most important thing is that you prepare the area well. This means measuring, marking out, removing the turf, levelling the surface with a shovel and laying out a garden fleece. Then drive the corner posts into the ground and attach the boards to them. Use stainless steel screws that will not rust.
An even simpler raised bed made of pallets: Prepare the ground well here too. Now align two pallets at right angles to each other, place them flush against each other and connect them with screws. Do the same with the other two pallets. Screw the two parts together and your raised bed is ready. The straight transport surface of the pallets belongs to the inside.
If you prefer stone as the material for your raised bed, you can find suitable gabion grids in our price comparison, which you can assemble into a plant basket and fill with stones. If you dare, you can also build a permanent raised bed.
You can find detailed instructions and helpful videos for all variants on the Internet.
