This super easy to build DIY Raised Garden Bed is the perfect option for hassle free gardening!
DIY Raised Garden Bed
Supplies Needed to Make Your DIY Raised Garden Bed:
Three 8 ft. long Cedar Boards or Trex Boards
(I recommend a 12″ – 18″ wide board, depending on how much soil depth you prefer)
- When selecting your boards at the store, I recommend laying each board down on the floor (testing each flat surface of the board) to check for warps.
- Cut one of the 8 ft. board in half, so you have two 4 ft. long boards. If you don’t have a saw, your nearest Home Depot or Lowe’s will often cut the boards in store for you, at little to no cost.
- Select a sunny patch in your yard to assemble the DIY Raised Garden Bed.
- Using a level, place your 4 ft. boards across the end of your 8 ft. boards, creating a rectangular box.
- On the inside of each corner, attach and secure two L-brackets using galvanized screws (one bracket 2-3 inches from the top, and one bracket 2-3 inches from the bottom).
- If you have an irrigation system for your yard, you can now run dripper lines into your planter box. You can run the lines under the box, or drill a hole and run the lines through the side of the box.
- Once you have completed the raised garden box, you can add dirt and start gardening! Wasn’t that easy?
