Details

Made in the USA from kiln-dried Oregon Cedar, a durable and naturally rot-resistant wood, these raised beds are sturdy and easy to assemble. Wooden boards are treated with a special non-toxic sealant to extend the lifespan of the wood.

Raised bed corners are half-lapped, with rods going down through the assembly, which keeps the corners from working loose. It's easy to stack the boards to make raised beds in many different heights.

Dimensions:

All boards are standard surfaced 2x6 with actual dimensions of 1.5"x 5.5". Two boards stacked on top of each other give the raised beds their base height of 11". If you order the 22" high raised bed, that's equivalent to adding another bed, except it comes with double-length pins.

The corner pins will be the same height as the bed you order, so you can put the bed on hard ground or a patio if needed, and the tops of the pins will be flush with the top of the bed.

Innovative Design:

Made in the USA

These beds are made from kiln-dried Oregon cedar, a rot-resistant wood that can be painted or stained, or left unfinished to grey naturally. The simple design of these kits allow wood to shrink and swell, for better strength and durability in wet/dry conditions. Hardware like screws and nails eventually loosen as wood ages. Our beds assemble with rust-free metal pins set securely through the ends of each board. So after years of exposure the planter won't fall apart, and yet can be disassembled by hand if needed.

Rot-resistant Cedar:

These raised beds are made from kiln-dried Oregon cedar—the strongest of all cedars. As strong as douglas fir and more rot-resistant than redwood. It's a fragrant, light colored wood with even texture and strong natural oils that help protect against moisture and microorganisms. To enhance the cedar's natural rot resistance, the boards are treated with a non-toxic silica-based wood stabilizer which hardens the wood and further extends its lifespan. The cedar's superior strength and durability means these raised beds last many times longer than most lumber found in stores. Perfect wood for long-lasting raised beds!

Assembly:

Watch the video on the left! Assembles in minutes, no tools necessary. Just level ground, stack boards and insert corner pins to create a long-lasting garden bed for your vegetables and flowers.

Easily build a cloche over these raised gardens. 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!

  • From russ baker at 6/27/10 1:48 AM
    • is there any bottom covering or just open for draining? is there a perferred ground preperation before setting up beds frames?
    • All raised garden beds are open-bottomed. (Garden 'planters' usually have bottoms.) This enables the roots to reach further into the soil to access minerals and nutrients which may not be available in your planting mix. This also permits the growing of deep rooted crops such as potatoes and carrots.

      You do not have to prepare the solid ground beneath the new bed, but it is advisable to at least break up the ground with a pitchfork, especially if the ground is well compacted.

      In our gardens, we dig about 12" down into the ground and break up the soil, and then add amendments like rock phosphate, then we build the bed over this plot of ground. We don't add fertilizer until the bed has been mostly filled with soil, since this gives the young roots from your transplants ready access to fertilizers which help them off to a good start. The fertilizers and soil amendments (e.g. compost, canola meal, vermiculite, etc.) should be in the top 6" of soil. Over time, the rain and your watering will allow these amendments to work their way down further into the soil.

      One other suggestion - go easy on the lime. The best time to add lime is in the fall because the lime has over winter to incorporate into your soil. Too much lime at planting time can actually slow down plant growth.

    • Can these beds be stacked on top of each other to make a taller raised bed?
    • Yes, the Natural Cedar Raised Garden Beds are designed to be stacked to any height desired.
      You can select the height of bed you want when ordering. This way we will send you the right height of aluminum rods to go through the corners and hold the bed together.

  • From Lisa at 3/13/11 4:06 PM
    • How is this wood treated? Are there chemicals in it that prevent me from planting organically?
    • The Natural Cedar Raised Garden Beds are made of Port Orford Cedar, which is naturally rot-resistant. This wood is chosen for making raised beds because it does not need to be treated in any way. These beds are ideal for growing organic vegetables.

  • From Beth at 3/29/11 2:11 PM
    • I live in Louisiana and we have alot of clay. Assuming I do not have good ground soil to use, how high should I have the bed to grow things like tomatoes, radishes, carrots, peppers, cucumbers and even corn?
      And what soil do I use to fill it?
      Thanks
    • Hi Beth,

      Most of the vegetable you want to grow can be grown in a raised bed depth of 11". This assumes there is some natural soil depth below the bed, even if only a few inches of topsoil over a clay foundation.

      The carrots are a root crop and, although we have grown carrots in a 12" deep bed, I think this is the minimum you would need. Same for potatoes. Corn is a heavy feeder and takes up a lot of room. We gave up on growing corn for these reasons, and because the price of corn is low in season.

      As for the soil, I would start with an assessment of what your current ground soil is like. You may be able to use some of your native soil to fill the beds 1/2 or 2/3 full.

      Gardeners know that gardening is really about building soil. You may want to have your soil tested so you have a baseline to work from. You will have to add to your native soil to make it light and 'fluffy'. We use peat for this. You will likely need to add lime, and rock phosphate. Finally, you will benefit by keeping a compost pile, as the compost will be your prime source of nutrients to add before each crop is planted.

      We also mulch our garden beds, which saves water and eliminates weeding, while benefiting the plants. The mulch gradually rots into the soil, building more soil in the process. Over winter, and between crop rotations, we also plant a cover crop of green manure which is cut down and worked into the soil before the new crop is plantes. This also contributes to building new soil.

      You can check our website and blog for articles about each of these concepts, just enter the term into the search box.

    • What about frost heaves. We have a lot of that here in the western Mass highlands.
    • Some gardeners cover their beds with black poly sheeting over winter for the purpose of keeing the rich soil amendments from washing through during the wet season. This also helps retain some soil warmth, possibly enough to prevent or minimize frost heaves. If the ground does rise in your garden area, these beds will accommodate the change in contour and shoud settle back in place as the ground settles. If there is any distortion in the bed, it would mean one or more of the aluminim rods may have warped a bit. It is easy to remove any of the rods and straighten them by laying them on a flat surface and stepping on them. They can then be reinserted through the bed corners.
      These beds are also easy to take apart and store in the garden shed, should you prefer.
