The Ultimate Raised Bed Garden

After three hip replacements I thought I was finished with gardening, so I dreamed this up. Screwed a PT 2X12X8 to my shed, cut another in half for sides, used a third to complete it. 4X4 legs support the outside dimension. Screwed 2X2 around the lower inside edge so I could drop in 5/4 PT deck boards for a bottom. Lined it with landscape fabric stapled up the sides so the soil doesn't leak out. Now I can grow tomatoes and peppers without bending or stooping.

  • This is a great idea. My girl friend has had knee replacement and can't get down that well but wants to have a flower garden and I think this could work for her. Why not install the 4 X 4's to the inside corners
