Elevated garden beds are easier on your back and knees because they require less bending, kneeling and crawling than regular beds.
Raised garden beds offer better drainage, which means your plants aren’t stuck sitting in excess water every time it rains.
Fortunately, building raised vegetable beds is a super easy do-it-yourself project. All you need are some readily available tools and materials, and an extra pair of hands.
- Cedar boards - Wood screws - Power drill
To assemble your raised vegetable garden beds, line the ends of an 8’ foot section and a 4’ sections up so they form an “L” shape.
While your helper holds the boards in place, secure the two boards together with wood screws or with the metal corner brackets.
