An L-shaped bed is a type of garden bed that fits in corners. These beds can be used in conjunction with gardening infrastructures to support larger vegetable gardens.
L-shaped beds create extra privacy when vines and trellises are added to the base. These beds can be placed on sand, dirt and lawn surfaces. Naturalyards recommends planter bottoms for beds that are placed on patios, decks or rooftops to protect the surface and enhance drainage. Adding barrier cloths to planter bottoms is an alternative if the soil is toxic. The beds should be placed on an even surface, in an open area, with plenty of sunshine. Adding a drainage layer is optional, and the bed should be filled with soil mixture before planting.
