I have somewhat limited space so creating raised rows uses up a lot of space. Do you really need to use raised rows? If so, is it specific to certain vegetables? Is it for rain water control or just to easily mark where things are planted?
I know things like yellow squash say something about making 36" mounds but .... really?
Cucumbers say the same thing but I think no mounds with the trellis would work fine.
So I"m asking what is the purpose of raised rows and mounds and do I really need them?
Thoughts - thanks in advance!
