There's no getting away from the fact that gardening is hard work. So why not make it easier on yourself by reducing the amount of bending and lifting you need to do.
That's why many people are building raised beds and planters. As well as looking great, they stop invasive plants from spreading, reduce the number of weeds springing up between plants and of course are more accessible if you have problems with your back or knees or anything that makes low-level working difficult.
Of course you can use just about anything as a planter, from an old bath to used boots and they can look fabulous with trailing flowers or greenery. The disadvantage with movable containers is that they need moving periodically to remove all the debris behind and around them - and they can be very heavy when filled with soil or compost.
So a great answer is raised beds where you won't have to do any heavy lifting and they can be built at a height to suit you. We can create raised beds from wood or construct them from bricks. Either way you'll have easy-to-manage containers for your flowers, fruit and vegetables. There's little limit to what can be grown this way, so let your imagination run riot and fill your garden with colour and produce without breaking your back!
