    Whack a few tec screws in through the verticle sides into the corrugated iron so it can’t migrate out. Thanks for the video

    What about in the uk. Where can you get them?

  3. Geoff Raike on February 11, 2022 at 10:44 pm

    Soon as you said plastic I knew it would not last very long because of the UV rays.

  4. James Ramsey on February 11, 2022 at 10:44 pm

    Well done you did good fixing it hat bulge bed. It looking good now .

  6. Hayden on February 11, 2022 at 10:47 pm

    Half the price of a birdies bed. But birdies bed look,last and work better. Was looking at that brand because it was cheaper but birdies just made to last.

  7. casperdaphantom on February 11, 2022 at 10:47 pm

    I never thought of throwing logs in the bottom of my raised bed, I do tree work and sell firewood and cut grass for a living but you most likely just made my garden area that much better!! Thank you!!

  8. Robin Holbrook on February 11, 2022 at 10:52 pm

    Um… so I guess it’s a negative review? Lol

  9. Rose Aki on February 11, 2022 at 10:53 pm

    Oh this is perfect for me especially on termites because if I use wood not good🀭

  10. Mr. H on February 11, 2022 at 10:54 pm

  12. Elsa Osorio on February 11, 2022 at 10:59 pm

    Thank you my friend for your good example tip.you encourage me more to grow my own food.

  13. Saverio Laria on February 11, 2022 at 11:00 pm

    Before you fill it in, install a mid brace and your problems are over

  14. Kyleigh Thurman on February 11, 2022 at 11:00 pm

    I love your videos. I watch them all. thank you for sharing your experience. You’ve helped me so much!

  15. Collin Anderson on February 11, 2022 at 11:00 pm

    Have you heard of sheet mulching

  16. Mary Lowrey on February 11, 2022 at 11:01 pm

    I’m going to disassemble one of these and give it to my mate for her allotment. Can’t believe your video completely answered by questions! And it probably was bought by previous owners in Bunnings. Bunnings were in England for about a year, loved them! So sorry they disappeared. Thanks mate! πŸ‘πŸ‘

  17. Laura Davenport on February 11, 2022 at 11:02 pm

    Love that small handheld tool that you use to scoop up the dirt. Great for raised beds at that height

  18. coobye on February 11, 2022 at 11:03 pm

    You’re blowing a bit there fella haha.

  19. Tammy Hagger on February 11, 2022 at 11:03 pm

    Thanks for the info I love the look of them, but will take your advice will look @ round ones or oval

  20. C'est moi, Kim! on February 11, 2022 at 11:05 pm

    Seems to me that a must after setting this up is to use something to tie around it several times at top, middle, bottom to bind it all together so shifting of dirt & logs doesn’t push the walls out.

  21. Karen Whittingham on February 11, 2022 at 11:05 pm

    We have a few of these. They have a threaded rod through the middle if u want to use it. – after 3 weeks one of ours blew out and split the metal at the bolt. So now we have a hole and split in the side of the long end of the bed- small but still it is a split that will only grow.

  22. Isabella Abruzzi on February 11, 2022 at 11:06 pm

    Great idea using the stakes to straighten the frame posts!

  23. Saverio Laria on February 11, 2022 at 11:08 pm

    The logs don’t cause the beds to bulge in the middle

  24. Latitude stopping on February 11, 2022 at 11:08 pm

    Hi mark you said to remind you to put the panels back the way they come out you put the bottom panel on top opps
    Cheers

  25. Kristine Bailey on February 11, 2022 at 11:08 pm

    I keep white vinegar in a dish soap bottle and apply it on the perimeters of garden beds to kill off weeds and unwanted grass. I also use it around my firepit to keep that area as dirt and safe from fire spread.

  26. Saverio Laria on February 11, 2022 at 11:08 pm

    I make my own raised garden beds, which might take a bit more time, but are cheaper and last for ever

  27. Cookie 123 on February 11, 2022 at 11:11 pm

    I have one of these beds that is only one sheet high and it’s lasted me a few years so far and still works fine. I can see the problem with the second sheet though! Oh boy

  28. Noel Hamilton on February 11, 2022 at 11:12 pm

    Thanks for your review may i say an improvement would be, actual cost length of time in use. Thanks noel nz.

  29. Gabrielle Fagan on February 11, 2022 at 11:12 pm

    More drama than Starsky & Hutch

  30. doctor6060 on February 11, 2022 at 11:13 pm

    Just loving your informative videos. Looking at setting up a raised garden bed in my courtyard and you convinced me to look elsewhere for a different brand. That β€˜ET’ looks like it gets well use , how many stage 3 pits has that been used on??πŸ˜‚ thanks again.

  31. Arika with an 'A' on February 11, 2022 at 11:13 pm

    Is it safe to grow vegetables – including root vegetables in galvanized steel tubs?

  32. mstubeyou691 on February 11, 2022 at 11:14 pm

    So glad i found your channel.
    I β€˜ve learned a lot watching your videos.
    I love your garden.

  33. Misty Marie on February 11, 2022 at 11:15 pm

    I am wondering as i want to try a corragated garden bed. Would Waratah work for corners?

  34. NotMuchHere27709 on February 11, 2022 at 11:16 pm

    why rebuild it … replacement looks like a better option. Ie the failure will recur.

  35. tannenbaum on February 11, 2022 at 11:19 pm

    It’s the flimsiest raised bed I’ve ever seen….any so-called expert designing this and doing minimal quality control testing can determine that this is junk! They should fire the guy who got paid to design a quality product and the guy who approved it. Drop it off at the companies doorsteps.

  36. SaltyNuts5756 on February 11, 2022 at 11:19 pm

    Ggggg

  37. Narendra Chettiar on February 11, 2022 at 11:20 pm

    Its not your mistake, those corners should have been metal too, then that warping wont happen

  38. ScotchandDry on February 11, 2022 at 11:23 pm

    Hey Mark, one important thing I think you forgot to mention about the rectangular bed is the better use of space. Not everyone has the ample garden space you have there and you would lose a fair bit of growing space with the circular beds. Just my 2 cents. Keep up the great work. Love the channel.

  39. Daithi on February 11, 2022 at 11:26 pm

    A few hundred dollars for some cheap sheet metal panels! And some extruded aluminium for corners.

  40. Dhananjay Dighe on February 11, 2022 at 11:26 pm

    That music isbkilling me man 😊

  41. yeahboiwahoo on February 11, 2022 at 11:26 pm

    Thanks for the review, I was just at bunnings about to grab one and decided to do a quick search for a review. You save me there!

  42. th71-2 on February 11, 2022 at 11:27 pm

    im building some today out of repurposed roofing metal.

  43. Darius Menda on February 11, 2022 at 11:32 pm

    Your too polite !
    I never heard it called a piece of β€œJunk” ..

  44. Sue Flanagan on February 11, 2022 at 11:34 pm

    Great review, and educatedme about raised beds in general. Thanks!

  45. taylor meyer on February 11, 2022 at 11:34 pm

    If you make one yourself from the hardware store, you should use aluminum pop rivets to connect them!

  46. Range Gleasry on February 11, 2022 at 11:34 pm

    This man works so hard

  47. Batpherlang Kharkrang on February 11, 2022 at 11:36 pm

    Hi…… Self Sufficient me, thank you for sharing your video πŸ‘‹ bye πŸ‘‹ bye πŸ‘‹ bye πŸ‘‹ πŸŽ₯πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

  48. Jody Johnsen on February 11, 2022 at 11:37 pm

    I’m impressed you could perform a repair on such a flimsy item. I will not buy one just to avoid the possible repair that I cannot perform adequately. Besides, the round and oval beds are less costly.

  49. Desmond Jordan on February 11, 2022 at 11:38 pm

    You are a stand-up bloke (literally) and a great teacher. Greetings from Canada.
    PS Don’t forget, the bottom panel is one one closest to you when you go to reinstall

  50. Willow Jones on February 11, 2022 at 11:39 pm

    On another of your videos, you were looking for a supplier of round corrugated raised beds in America, I thought I would share this link from another youtube video https://youtu.be/uCM0Tvp6Dko Love watching your video’s.
