Watering strawberry plants.

 Image Number D4956-1

Nutrient runoff can be problematic for our local waterways, even from our backyard gardens. With raised beds, the water is contained within the boxed-in bed, somewhat like a potted plant contains water. This also reduces the amount of watering needed to grow plants like these strawberries.
