I am planning to start fruit and vegetable garden in my backyard. I have cleared a space for that. I am new to growing vegetables, so I would like to get some advice. I read that raised beds for a vegetable garden has a lot of benefits. http://inthebackyard.ca/garden-beds-beneficial/ It is easier to build, it helps control the weeds easily and perhaps better yield. When it comes to gardening, I trust nothing but word of mouth. I would like to know your opinion about raised garden beds. I heard that more people are opting this for gardening in small spaces. I would also appreciate advice on building the structure. Thank you.
