Its summer time!! If you're looking to grow some fresh veggies or just want to grow some beautiful plants this is the way to do it! . With this raised garden bed plan, you only need a few materials, a small space, and a few hours to complete the project.
Flower beds do not have to be elaborate to produce fresh vegetables and beautiful flowers. With a DIY raised garden bed, you can customize your garden plan as you want.
For this project you will need a raised bed garden plan, 2 x 4s, a 4 x 4 post, tape measure, pencil, square, drill with bits and screw-driving bits, a circular saw, work gloves, soil, landscape fabric, shovel, hoe, level, utility knife, sawhorses, soil, wheelbarrow, and a soaker hose. You’ll also need the flowers or vegetables of your choice.
Select a location with plenty of sun and access to both sides for easy upkeep. Mark the outline of the garden bed on the ground and dig up the sod without disturbing the soil underneath. Check the ground with a level to make sure the base is even.
Lay the landscaping fabric down and cut to cover the bare soil with about 6 inches extra along each edge. Cut the 2 x 4s and 4 x 4 s to length, screw the ends of three longer 2 x 4s to a pair of 4 x 4s with the edges and ends flush to form panels. Then screw the shorter 2 x 4s to the 4 x 4s to form the box.
Position the box on the landscape fabric and check that it’s level. Cut any excess landscaping fabric and add soil or compost. Next plant your vegetables or flowers by pulling back the dirt. If you wish to add an irrigation system, wind a hose in between the plants and cover it with soil. Attach the hose to an optional timer for trouble-free watering.
