How much space between raised veg beds?

michael_in_chicago(z5)February 4, 2014

Can anyone weigh in with some comments? I'm moving to a new house with a new garden. My current veg bed area I created myself with raised veg beds and spaces between them at 12-18", yes, inches. It is far too small, I realized later.

At the new place, I'm thinking of spacing them 3' to 3.5' apart. Anything I need to consider - size of garden carts, etc.?

Mower width is important if you plan to mow between the beds, and that's usually 22 inches for a walk behind. Most people cluster beds with narrow pathways between them, with wider corridors down one side for easy access with carts, etc.
