Raised Garden Beds

I am a member of Lumberjocks and after posting this project there, someone suggested I post it here, too. I make a variety of furniture, mostly rustic outdoor/deck stuff, from reclaimed pallet wood. My family and I just moved into a new home and I promised my wife at least three, maybe four, raised garden beds. She is planning to supplement our monthly groceries with food we grow ourselves.

I have had the good fortune of finding some rather long pallets, so I was able to use the long runners to create the raised beds shown here. My son and I completed this in about 2.5 hours. We have cardboard inside that will help smother the grass and weeds from growing up from underneath. Someone suggested using weedblock netting, but I think the cardboard better suits my “reuse” theme for the beds.

These are wonderful.
The cardboard barrier is definitely a good plan – it will break down after doing its job and the grass/weeds won’t make it up through the soil that you will be adding.

And in just 2.5 hours??? Impressive

Great job.
Maybe you, your wife and your son can each plant in a bed to see who will have good harvest

Some non-woven cloth to line inside also good

If you are having plenty of Lumber or existing wooden pallets, you can utilize for garden decorations. Heat Treated Pallets are even better, because it wont accept the moisture .
