Constructing Raised Planting Beds in a Growing Dome Greenhouse
For those of you who may be considering building a greenhouse dome kit from Growing Spaces, we provide a selection of pictures from Growing Dome owners of their garden’s raised bed designs. In the Growing Dome, usually, there is an outer raised bed, a circular pathway, and then an inner raised bed. The beds generally are anywhere between one and two-foot-high depending on the personal preference of the owner and raised bed design is entirely up to the owner of the Growing Dome. Over the years, we have found our owners use recycled plastic lumber, redwood, Douglas Fir, plywood, sheet metal, adobe, rocks, recycled pallets and many other methods of creating the walls for the raised beds.
Growing Dome owners can also call us to obtain plans and cut lists for common internal raised bed designs. Be sure to check out our video tour of the Growing Domes we have on-site in Pagosa Springs, Colorado for additional raised bed design ideas. An important consideration is that the Undersoil Ventilation System is installed inside the planting beds around the interior perimeter of the foundation wall. Lastly, know that our Growing Dome Advisers are always happy to discuss exterior raised planting beds and other customization options for your Growing Dome.
