Gone are the days when having a vegetable garden meant a massive commitment of time and effort. Nowadays, people are creating raised garden beds just about anywhere and it’s so much easier! Heck, I’ve even grown things on a wall. Raised garden beds are perfect for busy families, those with limited space, and casual gardeners alike. I’ve rounded up the most easy and creative raised gardens from around the internet, most of which can be completed in just one weekend.
Each collage shows photos of the garden beds in groups of five, then the links are below. I like to split it up this way so you have a visual of each project without being overwhelmed!

If you have a limited time and wish to skip the DIY, I scoured Amazon to find several highly-rated kits where the hard work has been done for you:
- Cedar Raised Garden Kit
- Tiered Raised Garden Bed
- Raised Garden Bed Kit
- Elevated Garden Bed
- Big Bag Bed (just unfold fabric and go)
- Deluxe Garden Planter
- Viagrow Tomato Planter Kit (under $20!)
So whether you like to DIY or D-I-Don’t, there’s a garden bed idea to fit your needs. I’ve always wanted to make one, but with our house up for sale this summer I’ll have to live vicariously through all of you for another season!
