Raised Foundation Planting Beds

Generally, you'll see homes built on raised foundation pads like this in areas that flood or that have a lot of standing water in rainy seasons. Around my area, where we don't have a lot of flooding, we see older raised homes with raised planting beds that were or are farm houses built in the middle of fields that are flood irrigated.

If you're building a new home, it's a good idea to do a landscaping analysis of your lot and area to prepare for any circumstances that aren't obvious or present. And while building your home on a raised foundation isn't a common practice, it may be necessary.
