How do I raise an existing flower bed?

7 years ago

I put in a perennial flower bed this spring. We tilled it and then put down weed fabric. We mulched it once we had everything in.

This past weekend we poured a concrete sidewalk around the flower bed. Our issue now is that the rain water is going to pool in the flower bed. What would be the best way to bring it up to the needed level?

Do I need to dig it all up or can I just fill it in this fall/winter? I wasn't sure if the plants would come through the extra few inches of soil in the spring. Any help is appreciated! Thank you!
