In the planning stages for building a raised garden bed? This plan from Goats and Greens has some nifty features you might want to try.
I am in the planning stages for building my new raised garden beds. I love to see how people are creative with their ideas and I’m sure there are many features of this garden box that I will end up incorporating when I build my own.
Goats and Greens made herself four raised garden bed boxes that are 12 long and 4 feet wide. She says the finished boxes turn out to be around 18 inches tall.
I liked how she used two kinds of materials in the beds. The bottom construction is pressure treated wood and the top portion is made with cedar. She has fabric lining the bottom of each box and has also added gravel as a stabilizer and to help with drainage.
Because these beds are so long, stabilizing cross pieces are added over the bed in two sections. This will keep the beds intact over the years and could also help with sectioning the growing area.
Be sure you take a look at this sturdy plan for building a raised garden bed from Goats and Greens. On with the Hop!
Welcome to Farm Fresh Tuesday #8!
I’ve teamed up with my terrific homesteading buddies for a weekly blog hop and we’re super excited that you’re here.
What is a blog hop? It’s a place for bloggers to put their most recent articles about topics that interest you. It’s like searching for all the things you love about homesteading without having to scroll through a google search on individual topics. Each week you’ll find a new blogger and a few new articles that you’ll love.
My Co-hosts for Farm Fresh Tuesday are:
Lisa Lombardo of The Self-Sufficient Home Acre read her latest article – Carrot Zucchini Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting
Annie Lewellyn of 15 Acre Homestead read her latest article – How to Make Money on Your Extra Produce
Tamara Reid of The Reid Homestead read her latest article – How and Why You Should Prune Tomato Plants
