    It's nice and clever, but as you said, it won't work for everyone… down here in Central America, where it rains for 8 months, means your plants are gonna drown…also in the tropics, you might think that because everything is green and we got them tropical rainforests, soils are good… NOPE.. Top soil and humus is good.. if you start digging deep you get the awful rock hard clay soil… The sad part is that due to erosion and enviroment destruction, we got a lot of clay soil to work with… So down here sunken is not an option..

    I live in a not so warm and very high humidity area so I'll go for raised beds but if lived in a hot arid area I would go with this sunken beds no question. It's really important to understand we need to adapt to the soil and area we live in. Thanks.

    It all depends on your local conditions. I have one sunken bed that I grow the veggies that suit that. I used the soil from that to partially fill my raised bed. The rest are just normal level beds. I mainly use the raised bed that are susceptible to bugs (easier to deal with then raised I find, especially if you need to pick them of individually) or need extra drainage. The rest go in the normal beds. Whatever suits you local conditions.

    Thanks for the video. I live in a hot dry climate like you, 120f days regularly… I have raised beds on wheels because its so easy to make a shade frame along with the bed, and easy to have a clip on, clip off shade cloth to protect against sun and wind. So easy to create the right soil to fill it. I used straw bales to rot into a base of garden soil – cheap way to fill it. The primary point of raised beds is to avoid the digging, no? As you so rightly point out, if you have medical issues, and no brawny lads to hand… it's not that efficient!
    I think you mean raised beds set on the ground, but if they're even higher, it's much easier to create micro climates for them.

    The idea is fine, but the smugness of the delivery is a tad annoying. FYI, one more reason people created raised beds is when the property is built on ledge. In any case, happy gardening and best wishes!

    Sunken beds cost same as raised beds if you have underground diggers… such as gophers

    Interesting video but it felt like getting gardening tips from a rapper at times… Kind of awkward.
