Raised beds offer a host of advantages for edible gardening: control over soil conditions for less weeding, less fertilizing, optimal drainage and increased yield. You can also tailor the ideal soil conditions for each of your crops. Our bottomless raised-bed frames are made of hefty 2"-thick cuts of cedar for exceptional durability, and the kit includes all the hardware you need for quick assembly. Crafted of FSC-certified sustainable untreated western red cedar that is naturally rot- and insect-resistant. 2"-thick boards form a 36" or 48" square bottomless frame to contain soil. Assembly required. Predrilled holes for easy assembly; all hardware included. Made following socially responsible, environmentally friendly business practices by a company that helps empower people to grow healthy foods and build sustainable communities. Handmade in USA.
