I like 4' which in my case is two blocks (pavers) wide. I have long
arms and can reach to the center of a 5' bed, but if I am growing
"vertical crops" (pole beans, asparagus beans, cukes, cantaloupe, etc)
in the center of the bed, it is much more difficult to reach higher
fruit with the wider bed. And by the by, I think that is 25% more

How wide do you make your raised gardens? I have one that is four
feet wide but am building another..consideering five feet....33% more
space but I have doubts. Thanks for replies.

Yes, I meant in my original post that I considered four blocks (16"
each) instead of three blocks wide.....I am impressed tho, by all the
ideas that I have seen in the responses here.
