How to Build a Raised Bed Vegetable Garden, Spring 2011 – Timelapse

The audio swap music is the most palatable I could find that fit the length of this video. Each raised bed is an identical 4′x8′ box. The up-hill end is made from 2×6, downhill end is 2×12, and the 8′ sides are made from 2×10 lumber. All of it is untreated so I don’t poison my vegetables with arsenic. For the corner supports/stakes I used 2×3 lumber cut into 1.5-2′ lengths and cut to a point. Total lumber: 8 2x10x8 2 2x12x8 2 2x6x8 2 2x3x8 On a side note, my dog is better than your dog. Hope you enjoy!

  1. Love the dog

  2. You can lay cardboard or paper down to kill it, but I just covered it with dirt then put weed blocker fabric on top. So far it seems to have worked. I’ll really know at the end of this season when I turn it all over.

  3. Forgive me if I’m asking a dumb question but how do get rid of the grass? Shouldn’t you have taken that all out first?

  4. Your dog is funny.

  5. Yeah I didn’t have a very good plan, but they turned out pretty well. Took about 10 hours total. Veggies are in now, just in time for this storm to come kill everything

  6. sweat dog indeed.
    the beds look great! took a while to set them up, but sure seem to able to do the job now.
    enjoy them
