Do you have any suggestions for where to put metal raised garden beds if you're new to them? To be honest, metal raised garden beds should all fit in different positions.

Where to place the metal raised garden bed?

The metal raised garden beds could be placed on concrete, grass, soil, rocks, or fallen leaves. In general, raised garden beds can be placed securely as long as the ground is level. Gardeners can use a good raised bed kit and a suitable location to place the Zn-Al-Mg steel raised garden beds not only for future convenience but also as a special decoration for their backyard garden.

It’s recommended to place some rocks at the bottom of the raised garden bed. The soil in a 32-inch raised bed may settle and compact over time, and there is, of course, a filler factor. The rock at the bottom of the bed provides more space for excess water to drain away from plant roots.

On the concrete ground
We don't have to worry about weeds growing around it if we put it directly on the concrete ground. After being exposed to sunlight, the concrete floor will be hot enough to warm up the soil in the garden bed, accelerating plant growth, especially in the spring.

On the soil 
Putting it on soil or grass allows the microbes in the garden bed to exchange with the microbes in the grass or soil, allowing plant roots to grow downward. However, if you need to put it directly on the grass, be aware that the grass at the bottom may have a potential pest and disease hazard, so remove it first. In many products by Vegega, an 8" high metal raised garden bed is preferred to be placed on soil or grass for more growing space.

On the leaves
It’s OK to place it on the leaves. Because fallen leaves and wood are natural fertilisers for plants after fermentation, it is possible to build a garden bed directly on the leaves. However, you need to make sure that the garden bed is securely placed and that there are no pest problems around.

Factors to consider when placing a garden bed

Sunlight exposure

The first thing to consider, no matter where it is placed, is sunlight. Light is essential for most plants, including fruits, flowers, vegetables, and grains, and sun-loving plants require 6 hours or more of direct sunlight per day.

Location

Placing a garden bed in a vent, as well as in low, wet areas, is not a good idea. A strong wind can easily blow off the branches and leaves, and the low, wet area can easily cause water to stagnate or the soil to stay soggy. So, choosing a broad and dry area is the best option.

Water source

Generally, we can choose to water manually, or we can install an irrigation system or a pull water pipe to water. But either way, being relatively close to the water source is more convenient for irrigation, isn't it?

Pest problems

We don't have to worry about the remaining pest problems if it's placed directly on the concrete ground. However, if it is placed on land or grass, it is necessary to consider whether there has previously been a pest problem in this location, and before placing a raised bed over it, cleaning that area of weeds is effective in inhibiting the pest problem. If you've had this problem before, think about changing the location or fixing the issue before putting in the garden bed.

Conclusion

For most of Vegega's metal raised garden bed kits, it doesn't matter where they are placed as long as they are securely placed. Some of these restrictions are for the gardener's future convenience and efficiency. 
Of course, there is a small suggestion for the bottom of the raised garden bed;place the raised garden bed's outer packaging—the outer cardboard box—on the raised garden bed's bottom. This is an effective way to reduce weeds and protect against some pests. The most significant benefit is that the cardboard will decompose some organic matter over time, improving soil nutrition.
