In many vegetable gardens you will see beds made from different materials – wood, stone, brick, metal or plastic. Cedar is one of the most popular choices because it is durable and will not deteriorate. Concrete blocks are also durable and provide the opportunity to create different raised garden parterre forms. The latter are ideal for sloping areas. If you planned your garden on a sloping plot, terracing the area is the first thing to do.
