Building a Raised Garden Bed with Corrugated Steel

Building a Raised Garden Bed with Corrugated Steel

We show you how to build a raised garden bed with corrugated steel sides. This design drains neatly past the wood, so you don’t need any landscape fabric. We also built it atop a bed of pavers to keep the pressure-treated lumber from directly contacting the ground.

This bed should last for more than 10 years.

    Thanks for sharing this video on how to build these raised beds. They look amazing. I can’t wait to help my husband build some for me.

  6. popefang on October 1, 2021 at 8:07 am

    how many impacts does this man own! was thinking of making something similar. Thanks for the tutorial

  8. Devona Walker on October 1, 2021 at 8:08 am

    I am thinking about building the same as well as a retaining wall. Any advice? Especially in regards to the retaining wall.

    Awesome I wanted to purchase the Australian raised beds but this meets our needs just need to find some rust proof paint for the outside THANKS

  11. G.F. King on October 1, 2021 at 8:13 am

    Really nice raised bed. I think you need 8x 2x4x8 vice 6 as mentioned in the floor plan.

  12. Aaron Nunya on October 1, 2021 at 8:14 am

    Excellent video. Straight to the point no blah blah blah. And you made one heck of a nice planter box👍🏽

  13. AmericanPatriot on October 1, 2021 at 8:14 am

    thank god for a volume control

  15. Chris Calhoun on October 1, 2021 at 8:18 am

    I was considering all wood but I think these will save me $, last longer, and might look better.

  16. Thomas Sears on October 1, 2021 at 8:20 am

    Any idea how much soil to get to fill these bad boys??

  17. Abalagu Amit on October 1, 2021 at 8:20 am

    did you stain the wood frame?

  18. Alex Speakman on October 1, 2021 at 8:20 am

    Where can I get the list of material?

  19. JL Johnson on October 1, 2021 at 8:20 am

    Pretty awesome that you posted plans. That earns you a sub right there. Thanks!

  20. Joshua Lucas on October 1, 2021 at 8:21 am

    I’m gonna build on this weekend! But I need the name of that song so I can put it on repeat while I build. Love it!

  21. John J Watson Jr on October 1, 2021 at 8:23 am

    Considering 2x6s for top, thoughts anyone?

  22. prezsteven on October 1, 2021 at 8:26 am

    Cut with shears cuz metal saws make a mess…..major downfall to this video. Other than that, great build. I built one today, with a metal saw.

  23. Susan Walker on October 1, 2021 at 8:26 am

    Thank you so much for taking the time to make these detailed plans. It will be helpful. I am running late this season, I am new to gardening.

  24. Corey Whisenhunt on October 1, 2021 at 8:28 am

    The drop box is only one page do you by any chance have a step by step written instructions

  25. silwan on October 1, 2021 at 8:30 am

    where do you get panels?

  26. Justin Coyne on October 1, 2021 at 8:31 am

    What kind of lumber is best for this? Does it have to be cedar or could it be treated? (Not sure if treated lumber would effect the soil with the galvanized panels)

  27. Hodge Kerr on October 1, 2021 at 8:31 am

    Great design! I just built mine using your video and it came out amazing!! Can’t wait to build some more.

  28. Gardaki on October 1, 2021 at 8:37 am

    I used #9 – 3 in grip rite screws and redwood from HD and had so many issues with the wood cracking. I had to pre-drill and even then got some cracking. Any suggestions welcome.

  29. Tym B on October 1, 2021 at 8:38 am

    Interesting, BUT the music is beyond horrible!

  31. Rich Ray on October 1, 2021 at 8:40 am

    Where’s the link to plans?

  32. Gardening South Africa on October 1, 2021 at 8:40 am

    Awesome i am showing this to my hubby tonight thank you thank you

  33. Tony L on October 1, 2021 at 8:41 am

    At time stamp 3:04 you are making sure it is “Plumb” not “Level”. Plumb is vertical, Level is horizontal. I am thinking about doing something like this for a Tortoise enclosure and your video gave me some great ideas! Thanks for posting this you did a great job.

  34. BBQGUY on October 1, 2021 at 8:44 am

    What model is that Ryobi?.. thanks

  35. admin8446 on October 1, 2021 at 8:46 am

    Wtf is that noise find might call music???

  36. Chris Holdread on October 1, 2021 at 8:46 am

    good video, annoying music

  37. Milo James on October 1, 2021 at 8:48 am

    Great video. Too bad the music sent me into a year long epileptic seizure.

  38. Michael Norris on October 1, 2021 at 8:48 am

    Is the steel 24 inches by 68 inches?

  39. Matthew Risley on October 1, 2021 at 8:49 am

    Having the cut list in the plans would have been great. Darn!

  40. silwan on October 1, 2021 at 8:50 am

    How thick are panels (Gauge)

  41. westin Sandberg on October 1, 2021 at 8:51 am

    This music is obnoxious.

  42. Rey B on October 1, 2021 at 8:54 am

    Thanks for the plans I made this bed and it came out great.

  43. Fred Lennox on October 1, 2021 at 8:54 am

    Yeah. Where’s the link for the plans? Probably right in front of me, but not seeing. Thx

  44. Mike Caudle Sr. on October 1, 2021 at 8:54 am

    Don’t use treated lumber folks. Nothing against this builder but you don’t want the risk of chemicals to leaching into your soil. Use Cedar and level it with bricks like he said in the video.

  45. Therd on October 1, 2021 at 8:54 am

    does the plan build for one bed or two??

  46. Deondre Davis on October 1, 2021 at 8:55 am

    How much did this cost? Did you use sticks or rocks under the top soil to fill in the space?

  47. Paul Jones on October 1, 2021 at 8:55 am

    How’s it holding up? I started a build similar to this but was told the pressure treatment on the wood would erode the metal panels. Thanks for the video!

  48. quirt70 on October 1, 2021 at 8:55 am

    gardeners tip: fill the bottom with sticks, leaves, first to save on the amount of soil plus it feeds the soil for a long time.

  49. kingdarkem on October 1, 2021 at 8:56 am

    I like it, wonder how to add a bottom to it…landlord okayed raised beds but they have to be movable and can’t be open on the bottom except for holes as drainage.

  50. Shelly McClelland on October 1, 2021 at 8:57 am

    music is awful so I muted. Made 5 of these yet revised it a lot. Easier for women. turned out great.
