Also know, how high should flower beds be?
Height. Most raised beds range from 6 to 12 inches, with some as high as 36 inches. In general, the worse the underlying soil, the deeper you will want a bed to maximize the amount of good soil available to plants. And, more depth means more room for roots to grow.
Additionally, should flower beds be mounded? The raised soil gives plant roots a few more inches of growing room, and the edging keeps the soil in place. Other gardeners make mounds as they dig. As is true for the slightly raised beds just described, the mounded soil ensures plenty of depth for root growth as well as excellent drainage.
