DIY Terrace Garden Bed
Is your yard uneven, or does it slope downhill? The sloping ground provides good drainage but it can present some problems for your vegetable beds. There is a solution! You can terrace the ground into level ‘steppes’ or build raised beds for the garden vegetable plots in order to keep the valuable soil in place.
Building raised beds is a great solution because they can hold together for years and require little to no maintenance. By simply reshaping the sloped ground in this way, you’re also creating a system where rainwater soaks into the soil rather rolling down it which prevents erosion.
