This light weight concret block raised bed is laid on a pressure tretated frame supported by pyrimid foundation blocks. The concrete blocks are stacked using a specialty masonry adhesive.

SketchUp was a great help in working out the details. Time will tell if this was a good idea.

Nice keyhole design for your raised bed so that you can reach easily into the center. I think it looks great and I hope that it holds up well for you. I am guessing the white pipe is to help with deep watering? I hope you get a great harvest of tomatoes this year.

Thanks. Actually the white pipe is to support an umbrella for shade. And the whole idea is to be able to sit anywhere and weed.

Great use of sketchup. You’ll like the raised bed concepts, that’s all we do here in Florida

Very neat and convenient raised bed. I am sure you will grow something nice in that bed. The niche in the bed is a very good idea and looks good too.
