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.
