HOW I BUILD MY RAISED GARDEN BEDS OUT OF 55 GALLON FOOD GRADE DRUMS!
RAISED GARDEN BED MATERIAL LIST:
55 Gallon Food Grade Drum – QTY: 1
2x4x8 Lumber – QTY: 5 (12 foot lumber may work better if you have the means to transport it. You would have less waste.)
3″ exterior screws – 1 Box
1 3/4″ exterior screws – 1 box
Reciprocating saw or circular saw
Power Drill and 1/4″ drill bit
Miter saw or Circular Saw
How tall should a raised bed be? It’s up to you! Literally…whatever’s best for you. I chose 3 foot.
