Created easily from ordinary 2×4 and 2×6 lumber, these attractive beds look great anywhere. Even better, at 3′ wide x 6′ long x 18″ deep, they allow a lot of space for growing. The raised beds are easy to create with the most basic of tools. In fact,all you need is a tape measure, a drill, drill-driver and a saw. The beds use just (3) 2 x 6 x 12’s, (2) 2 x 6 x 10’s, and (5) 2 x 4 x 8 boards to create the entire unit. Although traditional untreated lumber works great, you can also substitute rough-sawn or even cedar if you wish. We prefer using traditional lumber or untreated rough-sawn simply for cost. And because both contain no additives, there are no worries when growing vegetables or herbs. Not only do they fit easily into smaller yards or on patios, they are extremely low maintenance. By their very design, the “raised” nature of the beds allow for easier access for planting, watering and harvesting.
