Details

Farmstead raised garden beds are based on a 17th century design and handcrafted from Vermont White Cedar. These raised beds are perfect for growing vegetables and flowers, and the versatile design suits any landscape.

Strong and functional

Lumber is custom sawed to a thickness of 1¼ inches for greater strength and longer life. With cedar slot and peg design these raised beds cannot pull apart, as may happen with beds that are nailed or screwed together. Pegs are made from black locust wood. Wood is not sanded or treated, so it has an unfinished rustic quality.

No chemical wood preservatives

Unlike pressure-treated lumber, there are no harmful chemicals to leach into your soil. If you want to treat wood naturally, we recommend Eco Wood Treatment - a non-toxic, mineral-based formula safe for vegetable gardens.

Stack them higher and save your back

Wooden boards are 8 inches deep, which positions the garden 8 inches above the ground. They can be stacked 2, 3, or 4 high for raised beds that are 16", 24", or 32" high. For example, if you want a 16" high raised bed just purchase two kits of the same size and stack them.

Q: When stacking the Farmstead raised garden beds, what holds them together?

A: The weight of the soil within the beds holds them in place on top of each other and it will keep them from shifting if on level ground. Although it is not necessary, it is easy to bracket the beds together with some inexpensive hardware or wood from a local store.

Interior Dimensions:

Use interior measurements to calculate planting area

  • 2’ W x 4’ L = 1¼ x 3¼ ft. (4.1 sq. ft.)
  • 2’ W x 6’ L = 1¼ x 5¼ ft. (6.6 sq. ft.)
  • 2’ W x 8’ L = 1¼ x 7¼ ft. (9.1 sq. ft.)
  • 3’ W x 3’ L = 2¼ x 2¼ ft. (5.1 sq. ft.)
  • 3’ W x 5’ L = 2¼ x 4¼ ft. (9.6 sq. ft.)
  • 3’ W x 8’ L = 2¼ x 7¼ ft. (16.3 sq. ft.)
  • 4’ W x 4’ L = 3¼ x 3¼ ft. (10.6 sq. ft.)
  • 4’ W x 6’ L = 3¼ x 5¼ ft. (17.1 sq. ft.)
  • 4’ W x 8’ L = 3¼ x 7¼ ft. (23.6 sq. ft.)

Assembly:

Watch our video on the left! It takes less than five minutes to assemble these raised beds. No tools are required. Simply slip the end of one board through the slot of the other and secure with provided wooden pegs.

Raised beds can be placed directly on sod, lawn, or even a weedy patch. Once the bed is filled with soil, any weeds underneath will soon form a composted base. For best results, you may want to dig down a few inches to clear any large rocks. Fill with soil and your garden is ready to go!

    • What is the estimated life span of the Farmstead Raised Garden Beds?
    • Depending on the climate, 10 -15 years is an average lifespan.

  • From Dorothy Brandt at 7/11/10 12:39 PM
    • how high is the gardening bed that a person would be working? I have arthritis and would not be able to bend very far.
    • Raised beds for vegetable gardens are commonly 10" - 12" deep. Because the bottom is open, the roots can go as deep as needed into the ground.

      Raised beds can be stacked for additional height, and heights between 24" - 36" can be convenient for gardeners who have difficulty bending over. Rooting activity for most vegetables will occur within the top 24" of soil. When filling a deep bed with soil, save the best soil for the top 12".

    • Can these raised beds be installed on solid ground like concrete, and if so, what would be used as a bottom?.
      Thank you.
    • Yes, the Farmstead raised bed can be set up on concrete.

      All raised beds (not planters) are open-bottomed. So in your case, the concrete will be the bottom. The disadvantage however, is that the roots of your plants will have a limited depth, unlike raised beds that are placed on earth. You can correct this by adding height to your beds, and the Farmstead beds are designed to be stack-able for this reason.

      You could lay a double layer of landscape cloth on the bottom, and this may help limit the staining of the concrete by moisture draining through the soil. Also, it would be preferable if there was drainage provided. If you live in a wet climate you may consider drilling some small holes, about 1/4" wide, along the base of the lower part of the bed sides, just at ground level.

      I suggest you put a level to the concrete before assembling the bed to see if there is a grade. If so, you will only want to drill holes (if at all) on the down-grade side.

  • From Phillip at 6/17/10 8:02 PM
    • Can you stack the frames 3 high? My mother is in a wheelchair and I think that would be more accessible. Thank you
    • Absolutely. These are quite sturdy beds and can be stacked three or even four levels high without bowing out.
