Galvanized raised garden bed build.

Galvanized raised garden bed build.

I am building 10 of these raised beds this year. This is the first of them so I recorded the build for you. There are some details and plan specifics in the video and explanations to why I went the direction I have. Hope you enjoy!

    Great job, thanks for sharing. You guys are spoilt over there with your lumber prices – for a length of 2"x4"x16′ tantalized, we’ed pay about $30 here in Ireland! This project is on my to-do list regardless. Thanks again!

    How did they last with no inside support

    I am looking at making a few of these beds and was wondering what kind of screws did you use? What length where the screws? Thanks in advance for your time,

    Looks great! I am making planter boxes for a restaurant where I live, but mine will have a bottom and be raised up a bit. I enjoyed watching to see the steps taken. Thank you!

    12 foot span, is bulging a problem you thought of?

    did you use pressure treated wood

    I would use them 👍. We’re just finishing up our new beds today. We’re using Amish sawmill lumber we got last year. Due to the size of our growing area we’re making 4’x10′ beds ranging from 12" to 24" heights with one at 36" for carrots and stuff that’s getting harder to work with as I’m getting older.

    Hi,

    They look nice!
    I’m planning to build a few myself to replace the wood beds that I already have, seems like 7 years is all that I can get from Douglas fir.
    Did you had a chance to used them?
    Did you have to support them in the middle to prevent bowing/sagging, due to the span?

    Thanks!

    From which lumber yard/hardware store did you buy these? Menard’s doesn’t have 2′ corrugated.

    If you wanted to have the vertical corrugations couldn’t you have just had 3 vertical supports each side?
