One of the advantages of raised garden beds is drainage

With light rainfall almost every day for the last two weeks, the ground is beginning to become saturated with moisture in this garden south of Dallas.
One of the advantages of raised garden beds can be seen clearly as flooding is occuring around these beds. The raised soil within the frames is staying above the surface of the surrounding water, and therefore the beds are keeping seedlings from being totally immersed.
