I love my garden. I am often having a struggle with moles and gophers. I have found a solution by building raised bed gardens. I simply add metal screen to the bottom of each garden structure. The wire screen blocks out the rodents and becomes a savior for my plants.
The basic idea of a raised bed is that instead of battling against poor soil conditions, you build above ground, where you have absolute control over the soil texture and ingredients.
You can build a wood or stone structure to keep the bed intact. A raised bed garden is built on top of your native soil. You can plant anything from herbs and vegetables to perennials. They drain better and they require less maintenance than a conventional garden.
Add interest to your garden by collecting pots of all shapes and sizes. Unique pots and containers can introduce a creative design element in any garden with minimal space.
