DIY Raised Garden Beds

Raised garden beds are great if you have anything less than good soil and are also kind on gardener’s back. They are great for growing small plots of veggies and flowers as they keep pathway weeds from the soil. Raised beds also prevent soil compaction and erosion, provide good drainage, and serve as a barrier to pests like slugs and snails. Raised Bed Garden Project Samples

Simple raised garden beds are obviously ideal for small gardens. If your yard could only use one or two garden beds, then these simple ideas are for you!

When building your raised garden, you would want to avoid chemically treated lumber especially if you are growing your own produce. The best woods to use for this kind of DIY project are cedar and redwood as both are naturally rot resistant.

You’ll need these materials:

  • 1×6 Cedar
  • 1×3.5 Cedar
  • Galvanized Screws
  • 20 ft of 2×2 Redwood

And these tools:

  • Measuring Tape
  • Miter Saw
  • Cordless Drill
