How to Build a Raised Garden Bed
“I couldn’t help but repost this raised garden that we built last year. We got more veggies from it than we expected last year and are in the process of replanting for this year’s harvest!
I wanted to build something substantial but small enough to easily maintain. I also wanted something kid and wife friendly so I made sure there was a nice bench top. This was a great family project, my son had a blast building our garden and planting vegetables. So here is how Brayden and I built our vegetable garden.”
I’m itching to get started on this year’s garden, how about you? Well, if you are, start out by building yourself one (or two, or three) of these raised garden beds. They’re simple to construct and will reward you with fresh, homegrown veggies. This post recommends you use pressure treated wood, but if you’re not comfortable with that, then go ahead and choose some wood that you are comfortable using. My husband and I used red cedar to build ours. And just a tip: if you want to get more out of your gardening space, try planting using the square foot gardening method. Have fun building!
