How to build Raised Beds for framed Deep Beds

Sun Aug 21, 2016 5:51 pm

I have finally started building the frames for my Deep Beds in the new part of my Kitchen Garden. I will make 25 Raised Beds like this one.

It's a lot easier to do the painting before you start building the Raised Beds, so I've been painting in the Garage almost every evening over the last few weeks.

I'm planning a modular system where all the Raised Beds are 120x80 cm. More about my Garden Layout in this post: New Garden Layout Plan.

The wood I'm using is 2,1 cm thick - so I cut the Planks into 120 cm for the long sides, and 75,8 cm for the short sides.

I start by putting the short sides together. Since I want the Beds to sit solid in the ground, and also to be able to eventually have one on top of another - I put the corners together like this:

The two short sides are done:

Now put the long sides into place:

Done!

I am planning to build a similar raised bed today. Will follow your instructions. What color did you use? Is it non toxic?
