Fast, easy and budget-friendly raised garden bed

1170.jpgHi all,


Hope everyone is safe & well!

 

There has been an enormous surge of interest in veggie gardens of late & I think it's in-part due to people realising they can, to a certain degree, ensure their own 'food security'.


If you've looked at other posts of mine you'll know I'm a fan of the raised bed for veggie gardening as it improves controllability of conditions and makes the bed more accessible. So.... with most folks seriously watching their pennies at the moment I thought it might be timely to look at a raised bed on a budget. I also specifically tailored this one for those with a low level of DIY skills.


So... here's my latest raise bed project... Enjoy :smile:

 

There are step-by-step instructions for this project here - https://www.workshop.com.au/t5/How-To/How-to-build-a-simple-raised-garden-bed/ba-p/33471

 

Here's the materials you'll need to build the garden bed:

How are you going with your project @Dark?

 

When you've completed your construction, you might find this step-by-step guide helpful - How to fill a raised garden bed. It includes tools and materials that you would need.
