Grow boxes are container-based gardens which can be both soil or hydroponically based. They are usually square or rectangular and can be constructed using plastic, wood, concrete blocks or you can purchase a ready-made setup.

Grow beds, also called ‘raised beds’, is a popular type of grow box. They are self-built rectangular grow boxes and they have become very prevalent due to the ease of growing vegetables and allow for better control of pest and weeds. You can grow almost any crop in grow beds by adjusting the depth of the bed when constructing it.

Traditional grow beds can be filled with soil as the growth medium and are manually watered and fertilised. They are usually not lined with any ground cover which gives more space for root growth.
