The whole point of raised beds is that they don't become compacted because they are NEVER walked on.
Because of that they may not be suitable for plants that need very firm soil, like sprouts.
They are a blessing psychologically. It is far more daunting facing a whole plot that needs hoeing, rather than a raised bed which can be weeded in no time! I love them!
