RAISED BEDS AND GRAVEL - make a lovely, manageable, organized garden. They keep pathway weeds from garden soil, prevent soil compaction, provide good drainage and serve as a barrier to pests such as slugs and snails. The sides of the beds keep valuable garden soil from being eroded or washed away. Raised garden beds also reduce back strain when bending over to tend the bed.
