Elevated Raised Garden Bed
Why elevated raised garden bed?
1. It’s cheaper than store-bought.
2. It’s more comfortable to tend to (no need to bend over and hurt your back)
3. It looks so esthetically pleasing.
4. It might protect from small animals (let’s see if it will protect the garden from squirrels- would love to hear your ideas in the comments)
Make the frame
Attach 2x10s together to create a frame.
Make legs for the frame by attaching together 2x6 and 2x4.
Attach 2x2 in the bottom.
Attach 2x2 in the bottom to create support for the bottom of the garden bed and lay down 2x6s for flooring.
Make the grid
The store I went to didn’t carry lattice so I had to improvise. I used 1x2x8 to make dividers and just screws to connect them.
I ran into a problem of uneven ground. Our backyard doesn’t have much of even space and wherever it’s even, it’s in the shade most of the time.
I had to dig 2 holes for back legs and elevate the front legs.
When it was super stable it was time to add soil.
Time to grow your veggies!
