Gardening Increased Beds

Growing vegetables with a method called continuous yield technique is a common approach in many vegetable gardeners practice today. This system consists of creating an “instant” supply of food by growing more than one crop of the same plant each and every growing season. The crops are usually familiar fruits such as squash, tomatoes, cucumbers, and leafy greens such as spinach.

If you choose to create a vegetable garden using the continuous yield technique you should be prepared to do some work throughout the seasons to ensure your plants get the required attention each growing season. This commitment does not take away from the enjoyment you get out of gardening and you will enjoy planting vegetables year after year for the rest of your life.

Rewarded By Gardening

Gardening can be very rewarding for the dedicated gardener. Gardening a large garden is like being in a top business level and seeing all the different products your vegetables produce. When planning your vegetable garden it is important to keep things in perspective so that you are able to have a successful landscape full of healthy and beautiful vegetables. Planning your planting area and preparing the soil are very important.

Gardening with the continuous yield technique is much easier to accomplish using square foot raised beds. With these innovative gardening tools you can have a beautiful and productive vegetable garden in no time at all. If you need to get started planning your future vegetable garden there are a few important things to keep in mind. You need to think about the amount of space you have available for planting beds as well as the size of the rows.

Land Requirements

A square foot of land typically has only nine square feet of space available for planting beds. Because of this, it is important that you make sure you have enough room to plant all the vegetables you want. There is nothing more frustrating than planning a great garden only to find out the plants that should go in that bed won’t fit.

With raised beds you can spread your plants out to fill that little space and make the most of your garden. This is a major advantage over designing your garden around a single large plant. When using raised beds with vegetables you have the opportunity to grow many different types of plants with ease. The smaller plants can be stored away until you need them for cooking or other food preparation purposes.

Proper Yields Of Output

Using square foot gardening increased beds with a raised bedding method reduces your work in half. It is so much easier to be able to use all the space with ease. You have the choice between using two rows or four rows for your vegetable planting beds. You also have the option of using different heights for your vegetables. Having the ability to adjust the levels will help keep pests and weeds at bay as well.


Square foot gardening with gardening increased beds has allowed me to grow many more varieties of vegetables than I could before. Because the raised bedding allows for air circulation, germination and watering you are able to grow more vegetables than you would with traditional garden designs. Now that I’m more educated on this type of gardening I know I can take care of my garden much easier than I ever thought possible. I enjoy taking care of my garden more than ever before.
