Bob Vila's 5 "Must Do" July Projects

Still perfecting your summer garden? Have you ever considered the many benefits of a raised bed? You can build one yourself with lumber, stone, concrete blocks or just about any framing material. One advantage is that gardening even one foot off the ground relieves back strain. More importantly, raised beds give you control over factors normally left up to nature: soil nutrients, water drainage, and erosion. Learn much more about raised beds and other worthy summer pursuits in 5 "Must Do" Projects for July.
