    Hi!😊 How much do you think this would cost in all? Love this video!!

  4. Tubacutie on December 13, 2021 at 1:57 pm

    Looks awesome!

    About how much did this cost? I’m debating having cedar wood cut vs using pickets.

  5. Abid Shaik on December 13, 2021 at 1:58 pm

    Aren’t fence boards treated wood ? Not recommend for vegetables with all the chemicals in the wood ?

  6. Nick Squidzy on December 13, 2021 at 1:58 pm

    I do like cheap! Bravo good sir, and cheerio

  7. Tena Nalls on December 13, 2021 at 2:00 pm

  8. Donald Azevedo on December 13, 2021 at 2:00 pm

    Post hole digger wouldve saved your life on those holes

  11. NaBo BoNa on December 13, 2021 at 2:05 pm

    Witz! In 2-3 Jahren ist es morsch und faul. Holz und Erde🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

  12. Selami Temel on December 13, 2021 at 2:07 pm

    👏👏👏beautiful, without breaking your nails, thanks for sharing, good work.

  15. Old Growth Artisans on December 13, 2021 at 2:11 pm

    I kept chanting post hole digger while watching you suffer with that shovel. Regardless, it looks lovely and well done.

  16. Karisa Walker on December 13, 2021 at 2:11 pm

    How have they held up? I’m worried they aren’t thick enough and will warp after a year or two

  17. Judy Crain on December 13, 2021 at 2:12 pm

    Can I add legs to these I have a bad back ?

  18. Mateusz Buczek on December 13, 2021 at 2:12 pm

    I have a question what kind of wood you used to place in the ground ?

  19. Cindy K. on December 13, 2021 at 2:14 pm

    Nice beds, but try making your own soil from peat, perlite or pumice, sand, decomposed granite, charcoal and maybe get a load of top soil/ loamy soil with no organic matter to add bulk. Save the compost, humus, recycled stuff , cow manure for top only. Your seedlings need more light, very leggy!

  20. Incredible Dad on December 13, 2021 at 2:15 pm

    What type of camera did you use to record your project? Did you use a tripod. I want to start recording projects.

  21. A Collins on December 13, 2021 at 2:15 pm

    Nice.

  22. B S on December 13, 2021 at 2:16 pm

    So we don’t need drainage holes?

  23. Riza Uka on December 13, 2021 at 2:21 pm

    👍📝📡⚽🍻🍹🤗🎤

  24. Marko176 Schneider on December 13, 2021 at 2:23 pm

    Super Video.Danke!

  25. b g on December 13, 2021 at 2:24 pm

    Did the pickets warp or Shrink???

  26. A V on December 13, 2021 at 2:24 pm

    THank you for this video!! My husband and i just built our first raised L shape bed. It was so easy. Thank you once again. I look forward to the trial and errors of gardening and most of all the joy of it all.

  27. p Scotti on December 13, 2021 at 2:25 pm

    Did you also build that raised bed with the trellis??
    Great stuff,.. happy growing!

  28. Bill W on December 13, 2021 at 2:26 pm

    😘

  29. Simon Iron on December 13, 2021 at 2:26 pm

    You didnt impregnate the wood, didnt even use a foil inside, affraid it will rott in few years. Rather sooner, than later.

  30. Night Walker on December 13, 2021 at 2:26 pm

    Great job. Going to build this

  31. Piotr Jankowski on December 13, 2021 at 2:30 pm

    did it rot after the first season|?

  32. Елизавета Хулуп on December 13, 2021 at 2:30 pm

    !

  33. GAUCHO POWER on December 13, 2021 at 2:32 pm

    Exelent

  34. April Suk on December 13, 2021 at 2:34 pm

    We used your video to build our U shaped raised bed. Thank you so much for the inspiration!

  35. Daniel Allmon on December 13, 2021 at 2:35 pm

    It’s been 3 years since this video. How are your beds holding up? I ask because I’m about to replace my fence, and I’m thinking of building a dozen of these. Maybe double layered, but I wonder if they will last more than a year or two? Any lessons learned?

  36. Marko176 Schneider on December 13, 2021 at 2:35 pm

    ❤👍😀Super ❤ 👍 Super ❤ 👍 ✔

  37. 10K Videos on December 13, 2021 at 2:36 pm

    I made my first bed yesterday. I like the way you built yours. Great video 👌

  38. shawn corrigan on December 13, 2021 at 2:37 pm

    dirt on cedar lasts maybe 2 years. nice work though.

  39. Lucky Luck on December 13, 2021 at 2:37 pm

    Why didn’t you use a film to protect the wood from moisture or wet

  40. D0M UK0N on December 13, 2021 at 2:38 pm

    What type of fasteners did you use?

  41. Alex Polidoro on December 13, 2021 at 2:41 pm

    Awesome job! I am jealous …🌈✌️

  42. Leah Allen on December 13, 2021 at 2:42 pm

    Awesome idea, watched so many videos on cheap ways to build boxes. Treated wood doesn’t work, hope the cedar does!

  43. pamela parker on December 13, 2021 at 2:44 pm

    thank you so much

  44. jimmyhaha712 on December 13, 2021 at 2:45 pm

    Nice job but leaving the posts in the ground like that will actually have the wood rot more rapidly. This would cause you to have to replace it much much sooner

  45. horridus63 on December 13, 2021 at 2:46 pm

    Cedar is cheap?? Since when?

  46. Bren on December 13, 2021 at 2:46 pm

    I stapled chicken wire on the bottom of mine to prevent gophers from dining on the roots of my vegetables saving the veggies (obviously) but also cost, labor and my time—and heartbreak!

    Skip the glue and skip post into the ground people. Unnessary.

  49. Chantal Tulliez on December 13, 2021 at 2:50 pm

    I made a raised garden project but with no post and had no trouble with their stability…good video and good work…
