Raised-bed gardens are becoming increasingly popular, particularly for those with limited space, problems with soil quality or other constraints.

Beginning with an overview of the many benefits of raised-bed gardening, the author outlines the basics, including soil, placement, design, tools and materials. He follows with step-by-step instructions for building 15 types of raised beds, including green roofs, keyhole gardens placed around composters, raised beds on concrete and hugelkultur beds on decomposing logs. The last section presents 30 additional projects, including a Japanese garden, systems for collecting rainwater, terraced beds and even a garden pond.

Filled with color photos and illustrations, planting suggestions and helpful maintenance tips, this is an excellent book for anyone considering alternative ways to garden.

Softcover, 8 1/2" × 11", 192 pages, 2016.
