Details

Made in the USA from kiln-dried cedar, a durable and naturally rot-resistant wood, these raised garden beds are sturdy and easy to assemble. It is easy to stack the boards to build taller raised beds.

Raised bed corners are half-lapped and secured by rust-proof metal rods inserted during assembly. Unlike screws and nails, which loosen as wood ages, these metal rods keep the corners from working loose as wood shrinks and swells over time.

Features & Benefits:

  • Long-lasting raised garden beds for vegetables and flowers
  • Assembles in minutes, no tools required
  • Strong corner pin construction
  • Wood is protected with a non-toxic waterproof sealant
  • Made from kiln-dried Oregon cedar

Dimensions:

All boards are standard surfaced 2x6 with actual dimensions of 1.5" x 5.5". Two boards stacked give the raised beds their base height of 11". Three boards stacked makes a 16.5" high raised bed, and four boards stacked makes a 22" high raised bed. Corner pins will be the same height as the bed you order, so the tops of the pins will be flush with the top of the bed.

Innovative Design

Made in the USA

The simple design allows wood to shrink and swell, for better strength and durability in wet or dry conditions. Our raised beds assemble with rust-proof metal pins set securely through the ends of each board. So after years of exposure these raised beds will not fall apart, yet can be disassembled by hand if needed.

Durable Cedar

Oregon cedar is as strong as douglas fir and more rot-resistant than redwood. It is a fragrant, light-colored wood with an even texture and strong natural oils to protect against moisture and fungal decay.

Cedar boards are kiln dried and finished with a non-toxic waterproof sealer, which hardens the wood and further extends its lifespan. Our wood long outlasts most lumber found in stores.

Assembly:

Watch our video on the left! These raised garden beds assemble in minutes, no tools required. Just level the ground, stack boards and insert corner pins.

To build a cloche over these raised beds, you can leave the corner pins slightly protruding and then slide some thin pvc pipe over them, bending the pipe in a hoop to the other side of the bed. Then drape clear plastic over the pipe and affix with zip-ties. Now your garden is greenhouse ready!

    • I have aspen in my backyard with an extensive root system and suckers which come up. I am thinking I should use landscape fabric under the beds. Also I have occasionally seen the mounds of dirt and hole which are made by moles/voles. Would it be good to put down a 2" mesh wire under the beds to keep them out?
    • The aspen is a problem. We have been there, and found the only solution was to dig a trench along the inner fence line separating the garden from the Aspen. The trench was 12" wide and down to hardpan, about 3' - 4'. Sheets of HDPE plastic were set in on edge so the top edges just protruded above the soil surface. We saved the rocks from the digging and threw them in first on the bottom, then put the dirt back in. The migrating Aspen roots were revealed when digging the trench, and cut. The roots on the garden side were then pulled up.

      The HDPE sheets were available at no cost from a feed store where they were used on pallets of feed during shipping. There are other materials you could use of course.

      If you suspect moles or voles, we recommend that you use 1/2" or even 1/4" hardware cloth (galvanized mesh) across the bottom of the beds and bent up 3" along the inside edges, where they are stapled in place. Then fill your beds. The 2" mesh you mention is not enough for long term protection from burrowing pests.

    • I'm thinking of a garden along the south side of my garage (plenty of sun) but the ground is uneven tapering from front to back. I would like to keep it level can you bury part of the sides? (one end maybe flush with grade while other end be raised 12"-24" depending on length of garden) Any suggestions?
    • You are making a good decision in wanting to make your beds level even though the ground is sloping. Yes, you could bury part of the sides to acheive the effect, but it's not the most efficient use of lumber since the buried part will rot. With a bit of sawing, you can have a lower back and higher front (e.g. one board high in the back and two boards high in front), by cutting tapered sides. You can use this method regardless of the direction of the slope.

  • From Maria at 6/1/13 1:24 PM
    • I am planning to order a couple of 16.5 inch high beds and installing them in an area where there is existing turf grass. Do I need to place landscape cloth over the grass or remove it to prevent it from coming up in the garden, or is the depth of soil placed on top of it sufficient to deter the grass from growing?
    • The depth of soil in your bed will prevent any grass from emerging through. You do not need to remove your lawn, but we advise that you dig in and turn it over a foot or so, as this will speed the breakdown of the clods of grass and will let you identify the soil type beneath the bed and remove and rocks or woody debris. There is no need for landscape cloth. Just fill you bed with soil, add amendments, and get growing.

  • From Lita at 7/3/11 6:52 PM
    • A native Washingtonian I am, I have a closed in back porch (with a cement floor) that gets MAJOR sunlight. Will a garden bed work on under those conditions? I want to start my own garden, but the thought of starting it outside where the critters can eat the fruits of my labor frightens me. Especially being a garden virgin
    • Some gardeners have used these beds set directly on cement patios. Our advice is to ensure the drainage can escape the bed (if the concrete is uneven it should drain OK, or you may need to drill a few small drain holes near the bottom of the bed sides). The main consideration is to check how the cement floor drains. It must drain away from the house.
      Secondly, you will need to get a bed that is at least 11" high to have enough soil for root growth. In outdoor raised beds, the roots can go down into the ground, but they are limited in your situation.
      You should be able to grow inside your porch for these reasons, but you will also need to check how much sun gets in. You will need at least six hours of direct sunlight on the bed for adequate plant growth.

  • From Patti at 4/10/11 4:10 PM
    • If I buy 3 of the 4'x8'x11" kits, is it possible to configure them to be 2 4'x8'x15.5" beds?
    • Hi Patti,
      Yes, you can reconfigure the beds easily. Your 3 beds, each 4' x 8' x 11", can be assembled into 2 beds, each 4' x 8' x 16.5".
      Please note that your math had the two taller beds at 15.5", but actually the height would 16.5".

  • From Anne at 2/19/11 9:16 PM
    • I like the Natural yellow Cedar 4' raised garden bed. But how should I determine
      which height to order? Which is the most practical and easiest to work in? I am
      trying to decide between the 22" or the 33"?

      Also would these raised garden beds do well in the South Jersey area?

    • Hi Anne,

      The raised beds in our gardens are all between 11" and 20" in height. The most common height for raised beds is 11|. If the bed is set on ground (rather than a cement patio, for example), the plant roots can go as deep as they need.

      The deeper beds give you the advantage of easier tending because you don't have to bend down as far. However, the deeper you go the more stress is put on the sides of the beds. The design you are looking at addresses this and so the deep bed may not be a problem. But the added soil depth means you need more soil. Most vegetables don't need over 20" of soil to grow well.

      Yes, these beds will do well in the NJ climate region. Having raised beds will let you start planting a little sooner than if you planted in the ground.
