Raised garden beds take many forms from the ones you build yourself from scratch to the ones you buy and plonk on the ground and fill up with soil.
Weeding is much easier so long as you don’t make the bed too big you can reach the weeds more easily.
Solves your Soil problems – if you have problem soil like lots of rocks, heavy clay soil or even really sandy soil a raised garden bed can save you heaps of work trying to improve your natural soil. Adds height to your garden – sometimes you just want to add a bit of interest in your garden the addition of height can be just the thing.
Pest prevention – raising the bed can make it more difficult for rabbits, dogs and other animals to get to your crops.
Heating and cooling- the soil in a raised bed will heat up and cool down more quickly than a bed in the ground. If the sides of your raised bed is over a foot high you probably need little or no ground preparation. Here is a great video which shows the really simple steps required to build your own raised vegetable garden.
I like what I see, as a woodworker and a lover of gardening this something I can totally grasp, great job. SDC offers a personalised and friendly service to set up your raised garden bed veggie food forests. In this example we have selected a corrugated metal and hardwood kit bed (there are many styles available in different materials and prices).

Composite boards are resistant to warping from winter frost, and won't rot from exposure to rain and moisture. Installation involves sliding the timber into the joint, and using the included zinc-plated steel screws to secure the timber in the joint. The patented anchor joint system allows installation on hard surfaces such as rooftops, patios or decks as well as traditional landscapes. Certain products have extended warranties (up to 50 years!) that are listed on the particular product page.


This depends on if you want the bed to be one level high (eg 5.5" tall) or two levels high (11" tall). For the composite raised garden beds we find that 12" high is the most popular height for gardeners. The anchor joints and stacking joints are used to connect the corners and add height to the bed.
Here is a link to the anchor joints, and you can click the Specifications tab for more information. Do you recommend these be installed over a concrete slab such as a patio or part of a driveway?
A raised bed can be assembled over a concrete surface but you will need to attend to drainage. I live in an area that I have ground Squirrels and gofers is there any protection on the bottom to keep these pest from coming through the bottom?
Not only will you have to pay for the materials for the walls of the bed you also need to fill them with lots of new soil and compost. Sometimes you need to dig things like compost in it can be more difficult to dig depending on how high it is and you will probably need to use small hand tools rather than a spade. If you are putting it on a hard surface like concrete so long  as it is pretty flat you’ll need none.
If you purchased a raised planter kit it should come with some recommendations for how to fill it. There are so many points here that have enlightened us on the pros and cons of a raised garden bed.
I didn’t really know about all these benefits but now I’m hoping we have our best harvest yet! All-season durable, warp resistant and maintenance-free, our 4' x 8' raised garden bed kit with composite timbers is ideal for growing healthy organic vegetables.
The connecting joints are made of reinforced ABS plastic, and the composite timbers are made from a blend of sustainable hardwood fibers and post-consumer recycled plastic. If you are in any way dissatisfied with a product you ordered, we'll exchange it, replace it or refund your money within 30 days of purchase.
Since the boards come in 4' lengths, your final bed will be 28' long unless you cut some of the boards shorter.


If the concrete is coarse, like aggregate finish concrete popular on many decks, then water will drain below the bed sides. If you have access to some good garden soil by all means use it in the bottom section but you should have 1 foot to 18 inches of premium quality compost rich vegetable soil mix in the top. Even though they have a few down sides they are definately great from a practical and as you mention, also aesthetic point of view.
Then we plan a layout configuration which allows for water access, compost, seed raising and other helpful systems for your food garden. After filling our beds with organic soil and mulch, Bed 1 was filled with our salad greens; Rocket, English Spinach, Purslane, Mustard greens, a range of lettuces and herbs.
To create a second level, slide the stake of another joint into the top of the ground-level joint from above. When you get higher than 12" you have to be a little bit more cautious about how rough you are with the beds. For best results, cut the sheet 6" longer and wider than the bed, and bend the edges up 3" all around.
You can either dig up the existing grass, spray it with a glyphosate containing weed killer or cover it with a thick layer of newspaper – about 20 sheets. Some gardeners use straw bales in the bottom of a raised bed but these will become waterlogged, rot down and become a bit stinky over time. Then we install your garden beds and provide recommended planting guides, seed suppliers, crop rotation plans, companion plant guides, seed raising tips and lots more. You will need to wait for the grass or weeds to die off then give it a dig over to improved the drainage before putting your new raised bed on top. Make sure you leave an area around the bed grass free or eventually the grass will grow up into the bed.
If you have a problem with digging pests you may need to put down some wire so they can’t dig under it.
