Wooden raised beds make a practical choice for raised bed gardening. Typically, these beds are made of cedar so they are naturally resistant to rot and insect infestation. Raised beds made out of wood are easy to place in any tight space, making them an excellent choice for urban gardening as well. Whether you want to try your hand at gardening on your condo porch, or simply want to elevate your garden to alleviate back pain, wooden raised beds are the right choice for any gardening desire.
The 4×3 cedar raised bed is a standard sized, quality gardening bed. The size is great for a variety of herbs, or for several vegetable plants without overwhelming a tight space in your backyard or deck. Cedar is the highest standard for raised bed gardening, so you can trust this bed will provide insect-free gardening for healthy plants. The 4×3 size is practical for a beginner gardener who doesn’t want to get overwhelmed, but is also a clear choice for the more advanced gardener who can invest in several cedar raised beds to elongate their garden and grow an abundance of vegetables and herbs.
After staying a few days in one of the many Portland romantic hotels, it’s time to head east to Central Oregon to continue your getaway. Central Oregon offers some of the most diverse high desert landscape of any location on the planet. The geological structures are phenomenal and Oregon is a Mecca for geology students and researchers throughout the world. From Crater Lake to the Cinder Cones just south of Bend, to the high water level just a few feet below the desert surface, this ‘wild west’ adventure is not only for academics, but for anyone who enjoys the great outdoors.
Central Oregon romantic getaways may include a stay in the largest city, Bend, but nearby Sisters offers more rugged outdoor allure. For example, the Five Pine Lodge is an excellent example of rugged exposure with luxury accommodations and five star amenities. Just south of Bend, Sun River is an upscale golf resort community with impressive luxury homes available for daily, week, or month rentals. Sun River is also just half an hour from skiing at Mount Bachelor. In Summer months, fishing, white water rafting, hiking, backpacking, and rock climbing can be part of your next central Oregon romantic getaway.
