Vegetable garden - Knowledgebase Question

Hallandale, FL (Zone 10)
Question by darla_schmit

I want to make a raised garden bed in the back yard right behind the house. What should we put between the house and the bed and what can we do to help with limiting the run off from the house?
I don't want to plant the garden just for it to be destroyed from the run off.

Darla,

I apologize for this delayed reply to your gardening question and hope it is still helpful to you. I would either consider using rain gutters and downspouts to reroute the water or use a trench/swale to reroute it from the garden area off to the side.

Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening year in 2007. Please stop in again soon!
