Bed time

Raised beds under construction earlier in the year

Raised beds under construction earlier in the year

This was way back in March, but shows the technique (if you can call it that) I use for making raised beds. The ones on the left were built last year, and the ones on the right were brand new. I concrete the corner posts into holes in the ground, then screw the sides – decking boards – to the posts. A good couple of coats of preservative and some plywood fillets down at ground level to cover any gaps, then they’re ready for filling. Hopefully they’ll last a few years.
