About this deal

Cucumbers do very well in raised beds, but they do need a depth of around 18” to grow properly. Give them a spot in full sun and protect them from frost in the winter months. Growing them on stakes or a trellis like the image above will give you more space beneath. Having worked on many successful landscaping projects with Property Developers and Landscape Architects across the UK and Europe, we know you can specify WoodBlocX in the knowledge that our system will match the most exacting standards. Everything else went well until it came to the top layer. Apart from the missing corner brace which was sent promptly but arrived damaged, they don't include correctly sized plugs. The instructions ask you to saw the top bit off which for a luxury item like this is disappointing. Why not sent correctly sized plugs?

Make the most of the space you’ve got available by opting for an L-shaped raised garden bed. These fit neatly into a corner and can even be combined with a seating area.Divide different sections of your garden such as the patio and lawn by using raised beds. Creating zones in your garden can make the space appear bigger, while also screening certain areas from overlooking neighbours.

Secondly the holes underneath the top pieces were drilled out badly and for the end two holes, incorrectly! The end two holes in each top piece don't take into account the the base of the plug that sits on top of the metal brace leaving a small gap. Why are these not drilled out correctly, it makes the whole thing look odd. Many people choose to grow veggies in their raised beds. Most vegetables love the improved quality of the soil that raised beds can offer, plus is there anything better than heading out to the garden to harvest vegetables for your evening meal? Ensure your veggies are planted in full sun and in well-drained soil.Galvanized steel is safe to use for a vegetable garden. Although it contains zinc, it does not leach into the soil in a way that may cause harm, which makes these beds completely safe to grow vegetables in. Besides, zinc is an essential micronutrient for plants and is a natural part of the soil. Ready for some sneak peeks of things? As I mentioned, this new garden has been in place for a couple of months now, and nearly everything around the bed has been changing. So, that means from just about every photographic angle, there are some crazy updates going on right next to this that I haven’t shared fully yet. Made in the USA from cedar, a durable and naturally rot-resistant wood, these raised beds are sturdy and easy to assemble .Their open bottoms allow roots to grow into the soil beneath to access nutrients and important soil biology. This raised garden bed comes with rust-proof steel crossbars, which prevent the wood from bowing under the weight of the soil.

Corrugated metal is one of the most popular choices for raised beds thanks to its industrial look and durability. It’s important the metal used is galvanised so it doesn’t rust. For style and durability, go for a combination of corrugated metal and wood like the image above. Potting mix is a man-made material composed of natural substances, including decomposing bark, peat moss, minerals, and perlite. The main difference between garden soil and potting soil is the addition of topsoil, which makes garden soil heavier. Raised bed soil is a specific mixture of soil formulated for raised garden beds, containing the ideal balance between potting soil and garden soil. Potting mix is too light to be used in raised beds, while garden soil is too heavy. Raised bed soil possesses amazing drainage properties and provides gardeners with well-maintained loose soil that establishes a favorable environment for your plants. The naturally golden colour of our raised garden beds will last for several years before fading to a silver-grey. WoodBlocX structures can be painted with any good-quality exterior wood paint. The system gave me immediate confirmation of my requirement, cost and delivery date. Goods were received on the due date, at the quoted cost complete with a printed manual for my specific design - printed on such high quality paper I thought it was another pamphlet from David Cameron ! For the corner bed, I didn’t actually build an entire other bed; instead, I used 2 boards, cut each in half, created the corner, and screwed it to the other two beds to form an L.You may choose to restrict the collection or use of your personal information in the following ways: Level the ground and follow these simple assembly instructions to set up your raised beds. Add an optional drainage layer, thenfill raised beds with a healthy soil mixture and you’re ready to plant! Elderly gardeners can find tending to ground-level beds difficult, as there’s often a lot of kneeling and crouching required. If you’re worried about tending to your plants as you get older, opt for a taller raised bed. These will require less bending over and allow you to sit on the edge to tend to your plants. You could also invest in a self-watering system if you’re not able to manually water. Hey, that’s me! I know it’s kinda narcissistic, but I really like that having K around has meant more photos of me actually doing things here on the blog. Bothering with tripods and timers is a pain in the ass to remember… so for many years, I’ve mostly done without being present in my tutorials. But, I also think that makes things a little more impersonal. “No more disembodied hand tutorials” is a new goal. No Soil Contamination: While treated wood and plastic degraded under extreme temperatures, Aluzinc material will not leach chemicals into plants or soil. This helps create the highest quality soil for organic gardening.
