Gather These Supplies for Your DIY Landscaping Project
You’ll need the following tools and materials to build a raised garden bed:
- Untreated lumber – Using untreated lumber to construct your garden’s frame is vital. Treated lumber can leach unwanted chemicals into your garden.
- Soil – Use high-quality soil to grow your fruits, vegetables, and flowers. Our screened organic enriched blend is a great option!
- Outdoor deck screws
- A cordless drill
- Landscape fabric – A non-woven fabric is ideal for any garden bed because it allows for the water to drain but keeps weeds at bay.
The quantity of these materials will depend on the scale of your project. If you’re building a single 4′ x 4′ garden bed, you’ll need fewer boards and less soil than if you’re planning multiple 4′ x 8′ beds.
DIY Landscaping Guide: Building Raised Garden Beds
You can construct raised garden beds to fit any space, and the designs you create can be entirely unique to your property. While the sizes and shapes of your garden beds may vary, you can follow these basic steps to build raised garden beds:
- Sketch a basic blueprint for your project, complete with measurements. Your raised beds should be at least one foot deep to provide ample room for roots.
- Create a wood frame for your raised beds. Join pieces of lumber with outdoor deck screws and a cordless drill. Once constructed, line your frame with landscape fabric.
- Fill your frame with organic soil from Lehnhoff’s Supply.
- Plant fruits, vegetables, and flowers at the appropriate time. Tend your garden all spring and summer, then enjoy the fruits of your labor!
