Lazy Beds

Lazy beds are small plots of land, where the soil has been piled into long, narrow, raised mounds. These beds were used to grow a range of vegetables or crops, especially potatoes. They were often used in areas with shallow or poorly drained soil, as they provided a good depth of soil with good drainage.
