How to Fill a Raised Bed (And Save Money)



You can fill a raised bed for free or for greatly reduced cost. Being aware of how much soil you need and what your options are can save you money when you fill a raised bed. Gardener Scott shows three different methods for filling raised beds and discusses the great expense when choosing to use store-bought, bagged “garden soil”. Most gardeners can use soil and organic materials in their landscape to fill raised beds and create a healthy soil environment for plants. Similar to Hugelkultur, burying branches can fill the bottom half of raised beds and no extra cost.

Hugelkultur books:

“Gaia’s Garden” https://amzn.to/2mHU7fV

You can help support the GardenerScott channel in three ways and it won’t cost you anything:
1.) Be part of the community by liking videos, subscribing, clicking the bell, commenting, and sharing.
2.) Watch the ads whenever you can. It just takes a few seconds and helps me a lot.
3.) If you use Amazon and want to buy anything at all, click through with this link: http://www.amazon.com/?tag=gardenerscott-20
It doesn’t cost you any extra, but it helps me pay for plants, gardening supplies, and all of the other costs associated with running a YouTube channel.
