How to Fill a Raised Bed (And Save Money)

  • Published on:  8/20/2019
  • 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:
    "Sepp Holzer's Permaculture"
    "Gaia's Garden"
