Ever since I made two raised garden beds out of my neighbor’s cast-off shutters, I have wanted more! But, unfortunately, materials to repurpose were just not coming my way.
Then I saw a wonderful raised bed by Aristata Land Works posted on Pinterest and was inspired. For only $68 worth of materials I could have the giant 8 ft X 8 ft raised bed I wanted!
All our materials came from Lowe’s and we used less expensive pressure-treated lumber rather than pricey cedar (although I love the look of cedar!)
Take a look at Aistata Land Work’s great directions as well as mine below. You can really make these raised garden beds any size you like to fit your needs.
If you are going to paint a raised bed like I did, one piece of advice to save some time is paint before attaching the metal!
