Best Places to Place Metal Raised Garden Beds
If galvanized metal raised garden beds are new to you, what are your thoughts on placing them? Honestly, nosstagarden's metal raised garden bed kit will work for most places.

Metal raised garden beds can be placed on concrete floors, grass, soil, rocks or fallen leaves. In general, elevated pots can only be placed safely if the ground is level.

For gardeners, choosing a good raised bed kit and placing a metal raised garden bed in a suitable position will not only facilitate their future maintenance, but also serve as a special decoration for their own back garden.

Our metal raised garden beds can be placed on concrete floors, grass, soil, ground, foliage, and indoors. Whereas indoor raised bed garden kits require a support base.

Some rocks are recommended at the bottom of the 32-inch garden bed, as the soil will settle and become compacted over time. The rocks at the bottom of the bed increase the space for excess water to drain from the plant roots.

If you put it directly on the concrete floor, you don't have to worry about the surrounding weeds. Concrete floors can get hot enough to warm the soil in garden beds when exposed to sunlight. It also speeds up plant growth. It is not good?

Placing it on soil or grass allows the microbes in the garden bed to exchange with those in the grass or soil. But if you need to place directly on grass, be aware that the grass at the bottom will grow and absorb nutrients from the flower bed. It can also increase pest problems. If you plan to put it in grass, it's best to pull the grass first.

Just put it on the leaves. For plants, fallen leaves and wood are fermented natural fertilizers, so flower beds can also be placed directly on fallen leaves. But you need to make sure the garden beds are well placed and there are no pest problems around.

Weeds can easily grow near fallen leaves, so it's best to place your flower beds where weeds won't grow. The fallen leaves can be fermented in the middle layer of the flower bed, and can also be covered in the outermost layer. Seeds or seedlings are also fine.

With most of nosstagarden's metal raised garden bed sets, it doesn't matter where you place them as long as they are secure. Some of these restrictions are for the convenience and efficiency of the gardener's future care.

Of course, there is a small suggestion for the bottom of the metal raised garden bed; that is, you can put the outer packaging of the nosstagarden metal garden bed - the outer carton - on the bottom of the metal garden bed. Not only does this improve drainage issues, it also increases air circulation and keeps pests, weeds, and more at bay.

Factors to consider when placing metal raised garden beds

A: Sunshine: No matter where it is placed, the first thing to consider is sunlight. Light is essential to most plants, such as fruits, flowers, vegetables and grains.

Of course, plants that don’t like sunlight can also be considered indoors, but it should be noted that the metal raised flower beds of nosstagarden have no bottom, so if they need to be placed indoors, you need to find a material to fix the bottom just in case. Soil seepage.

B: Putting garden beds in vents is not a good option. Strong winds can easily break branches and leaves. Therefore, you may choose to place your garden beds in a sunny, well-ventilated location.

C: Pest problem: If it is placed directly on the concrete floor, there is no need to worry about the remaining pest problem. But if you put it on land or grass, you need to consider whether there has been a pest problem in the place before. If you have had this problem before, consider changing the location or addressing the problem before placing your garden beds.

D: Water source: Generally, you can choose manual watering, or you can install an irrigation system or pull water pipes to water. But either way, it's always more convenient to be near a water source. In this way, as long as the water is not enough, we can water it in time.
