Garden Box Kits

Building a raised garden box is an easy way to expand the use of your backyard. With affordable garden box kits available in several different sizes, they are simple to install and can be customized to fit your specific needs. Whether it’s growing a vegetable garden, planting flowers, or a combination of the two, it’s a DIY project anyone can take on.

There are two types of raised garden boxes to choose from, one with and without legs, both of which are affordable and come with all the materials you need to get started.

Benefits of a Raised Garden Box Kit

Building a raised garden box gives you more control over your plants and allows you to group them by what you want to grow. It also gives you room to start small and add to your garden over time.

A raised garden box kit includes all the various sizes of lumber and materials you’ll need to put it together. Regardless of whether you have a large backyard or a smaller patio area, you can customize the size to fit your outdoor space. It instantly boosts the aesthetic while also providing a place to plant all the fruits, vegetables, and flowers you’d like.

Another advantage of a raised garden box kit is it helps with pest control. In addition to the lumber and hardware needed for construction, it comes with garden box accessories, as previously mentioned, to place beneath the soil. This keeps critters from disrupting the soil and ruining your plants.

Also, building a raised garden box helps with water control, allowing proper drainage so the roots get enough water but not so much they become waterlogged. This helps to maintain the soil’s moisture to grow healthy vegetation while also reducing the chance of overwatering.

Where to Set Up Your Raised Garden Box

Most plants require ample sunlight for several hours throughout the day. Make sure your garden box is positioned in an area that won’t block the sun.

However, some plants like lettuce or other dark, leafy greens don’t require as much sunlight, so you will want to position those plants accordingly. Fortunately, the versatility of the kits means you can build them wherever will promote a healthy harvest. Having a garden box nearby filled with herbs and vegetables makes it perfect when preparing meals.
