Really want to plant a garden this spring, but our new home has all the lines buried under the ground. Has anyone had any success with a  raised bed garden??

Yeah raised beds work well. Make sure you are using good soil and do some research on how far the roots go of the different things you want to plant. This will help you figure out how much soil you need to put in the raised bed.

 Raised beds can work really well - I've never done more than plant some lily bulbs in them myself, though, lol.

I've only ever had one and grew a lot of ferns and fern-type plants in it. It worked great though, and my grandmother does almost all of her gardening in raised beds. Easier to tend to them at her age :)

I'm really wanting to plant veggies, like tomatos, Cucumbers, etc. :) Has anyone tried a veggie garden in raised beds??

All our likes are buried, nt you should be able to cell and have them mark your lawn showing where they are. There is s good change you could still plant.

That being said, you can have great success with a raised garden.
