Build this beautiful Raised Garden Bed (Elevated Planter) and watch your organic veggies grow!
The entire design calls for Western Red Cedar, so it’s going to create a lasting first impression because nothing looks, feels…or smells quite like Real Cedar. Real Cedar is also a durable, yet surprisingly lightweight building material. Furthermore, Real Cedar is naturally resistant to rot, decay and insects.
When it comes to specifying sizes, we recommend asking your local Real Cedar retailer if they have any short lengths in stock. Using short lengths means less cutting, less waste and more savings for you. Search for kiln dried material, if available.
