Why is it raised?

What is the particular benefit of it being raised?

@SethBrown @3rik @plants no idea if this is OP's reasoning but raised beds are significantly more accessible. Bending down to garden is very difficult for many people.

@ehashman @SethBrown @plants yes, this and also I like to see my plants more close, so I love to put them somewhere up, where I can be closer.

But of course, such a bed - raised or not - also has a way more volume of soil in comparison to a regular pot.
