Decal Scotland provide landscaping services to the Uddingston area.
For most gardeners, one of the hardest parts of the hobby is all that bending down or kneeling to take care of the flower beds. If you are finding this is a bit of a struggle or puts you off gardening, then the idea might to have raised beds.
Raised beds are becoming more popular in landscaping as people realise these are an easier way to have the plants they want. Raised beds are usually made from wood and can come in a range of shapes and sizes. They are filled with soil or compost and the plants added then maintenance is the same as a garden bed – without the bending or kneeling.
It is often easier to keep raised beds in top condition and looking smart once they are in place. Plants are restricted to the space of the raised bed and they don’t grow out of control or over a path. The raised nature also means some pests can’t reach the plants as easily – many gardeners say if you use copper flashing on the edge of the box, slugs won’t crawl over for it for one.
If you have a boggy or damp garden, raised beds will let you grow plants you otherwise couldn’t because you can ensure better drainage. It is simpler to keep on top of weeds and you can even cover the surface in material such as wood chips to help keep it smart.
