It allows soil to warm up earlier in the season, giving you a head start on planting and It keeps stubborn weeds from overtaking your garden.

So that's why they raise garden beds, I always thought it was for organization, like putting files in folders.

This doesn't prevent moles from digging in though does it? Unless the bottom is sealed? That would make it a container garden?

Pretty garden!! I like the combination of square wood raised beds with matching lattices. It really depends on your space want you're doing.

Wood square + lattice best for veggies, rock best for frontyard or show space, plastic or metal strips for invisible places.

Wood & lattice are great for veggie gardens, with climbers like beans, cucumbers. Wouldn't look quite right in the front yard though.

We use layers of garden edging too back at home in Indiana, cheap plastic strip in invisible spaces and rocks in prominent areas to form an aesthetic barrier.
