Tips for your own raised bed on the balcony

Raised beds are trendy. Not least because they also make gardening possible in urban areas. In addition, weeding is hardly necessary – snails and mice are less likely to tamper with berries or vegetables.

Even on the balcony of a rented apartment, it is possible to create a raised bed and harvest fresh vegetables or herbs from your own cultivation. The maintenance effort is relatively low. Apart from regular watering and occasional fertilizing, hardly any work is necessary. Provided that a few important points are taken into account in advance.

Choose a suitable location

The location of a raised bed on the terrace or balcony is an important point that you should think about in advance before buying a raised bed or creating it yourself.

It is also important to note that weight restrictions sometimes have to be taken into account on terraces and balconies.

Choose the right material
