How to Build a Raised Garden Bed with Wood – Easy (EZ) & Cheap


How to Build a Raised Garden Bed with Wood – Easy (EZ) & Cheap
I’ve built a number of raised beds over the years, but so far this design is my favorite. The sides are 2 x 10’s and the top is capped off with a 2 x 4 shelf, which not only helps keep the 2 x 10’s from bowing out from the weight of the soil but also makes a great place to sit when working in the garden.

One Yard Revolution is all about growing a lot of food on a little land using sustainable organic methods, while keeping costs and labor at a minimum. Emphasis is placed on improving soil quality with compost, mulch, and compost tea. No store-bought fertilizers, soil amendments, pesticides, compost activators, etc. are used.
