    Default Anyone building a raised bed without using lumber?

    Hi! I need to put in a coupe of raised beds in my garden, to overcome low spots. My problem is termites in the area, so I don't want to use wood. I'm thinking of using 18x6x2" concrete blocks. Has anyone else built raised beds with material other than wood?

    look on Pintrest. I have used concrete blocks. Also consider corrugated steel.

    I'd go with steel. Looks better and takes up less space.

    Yes - Our raised veggie beds were created using ROCKS!

    It highlights organic fruit trees, organic vegetable circle garden, and backyard chickens!
    Check it out on Youtube (Grow Create Films)…and, enjoy!

    I got tired of having wooden bed sides rot out, so I built frames using 4" x 4" posts every four feet, with a pressure treated 2 x 6 connecting the posts on the bottom, and a 2 x 4 on the top. I lined the insides of the frame with old roofing tin. So dirt no longer touches the wood, and the rotting out problem is solved. Cheap and easy!
