Are you looking for a new garden idea? Try building inexpensive raised beds for your garden. PreparednessMama has created a new garden in her suburban backyard and she’s used cedar fencing for the garden boxes.
Cedarwood has remarkable stability, it won’t change it’s size or dimension despite weather, humidity or temperature conditions. While many types of wood will warp when subjected to moisture, cedar stays straight and flat which makes it perfect for fencing and garden boxes.
There are several great reasons to grow in raised garden beds.
- They are easy to handle and clean.
- You can walk all the way around them for easy harvesting and
- You can thin plants without getting dirty.
- The small space keeps you from needing to walk on the soil, which means there is more room for plants and a bigger harvest.
Her plans for inexpensive raised garden beds call for using six, 6-foot fence planks. There is minimal cutting in the project and once finished your boxes will measure 6 ft x 3 ft.
