My wife and I are planting raised garden beds for the first time this Spring. I had plans to level the ground where the raised bed was going to make it look nicer. But my mother-in-law, a master gardener herself, suggested a gradual slope for the bed because the dirt underneath where we were planting may not be the highest quality.
She thinks a slope for water drainage might be a good idea. Not sure I totally follow this, but curious what the community thinks?
