That’s why raised garden beds are such a great idea. They can help protect your seedlings from unwelcome animals. And the good news is that it’s relatively simple to make a raised bed yourself! I gathered some great DIY ideas for building a raised garden–I hope you find some inspiration!

    I am looking for a way to build my own raised garden bed. I have my herbs in pots right now, but not satisfied with the results.

      Could always use a set of stairs and line the pots up the steps. Size reflects your needs

    I am wanting to do raised beds for my garden but I am curious if you can use pressure treated wood? Would the pressure treated wood not be good for the plants? I would appreciate the answer if you knew.

      I wonder if the chemicals used to make it pressure treated could leach out into the soil, the plant, and vegetables.

      There is so much controveries when using pressure treated would. The yellow wood manufacturer uses copper sulfate for the wood. Before 2009 arsenic and cyanide were used in treated wood.
      It is a decision you will have to make.

      The chemicals in the treated wood wil leach into the soil of the bed. It is ok to use, if you plant flowers. But not for a food source.

    How do you keep the dirt in those cinder block planter shelves?

    Line the bottom and sides with landscape cloth to allow the water to drain through but keep most if not all of the soil inside. Also highly recommend lining the bottom with quarter inch wire mesh from the hardware or landscape store to keep gophers and voles from getting into your vegetable garden.
