Click on the tab that says "Techniques" to read all about this subject. Alan Chadwick was the person who brought the knowledge of raised beds to the USA in the 1960's, so he's a great source of information.

Raised beds can be any height you want. I make mine about 8" tall as that is the width on the lumber I had on hand.

We also built a number of raised beds at our community garden 8" tall. For the mobility-limited gardeners, we made them 2' tall and that seems to work well. It just takes a lot more soil mix to fill them.

MLeeG writes: I thought the idea of "raised" beds was so that one doesn't have to kneel. These are all beautiful but only 3 seem to be truly raised. Isn't the criteria that one should only have to lower to a sitting position? I'm planning one that even my husband will enjoy using from rolling chair. What's the best soil blend for Veggie gardening? And where can I get it inexpensively? Should I start with anti-gopher wiring along the bottom or even dig down an extra foot to add that?
