    I like the modified row design, was glad to learn that traditional rows are OK too, I thought all permaculture gardens had to be keyholes! Thank you!

    This is my back yard key hole garden project!
    It is working well in Calgary, AB Canada.

    Hoping to transform this into cold frame.

    We have raised bed gardens currently and live in zone 8b in Central Texas. Is there a rule of thumb for average rainfall or something similar that would tell us if raised beds are more suitable for our area vs traditional?

      {HHA Coach} Hi Clay! There are many factors that come into play when considering raised beds. Soil temp, rain fall, easy of access & control of soil quality to name a few. While there is no set rule of thumb for whether or not a raised bed is the right fit for your lifestyle, a little digging into what feels perfect for you will help you to decide your next steps.

    Haha have just added a raised bed (made with stone) two weeks ago and now wish i had done this module first! Think I may have to change it as will nearly double the space if I get it right

      Hey Asha!

      YES! I am not saying don’t use raised beds in dry climates, because there are some instances where maybe it makes sense, BUT be aware that raised beds cause soil to try out quicker and therefore require more irrigation in arid and semi-arid climates.
