Easy Outdoor Raised Garden Beds

Easy Outdoor Raised Garden Beds

If you’ve been putting off installing a raised garden bed to grow your own fruits and vegetables, there is now no excuse to stall any longer. Scout Regalia in LA has put together a stylish hardware kit complete with instructions; you supply the wood, plants, and labor. Consider using reclaimed or locally harvested wood for your garden bed; Scout Regalia offers already-assembled beds made with wood certified by the Forest Stewardship Council.

The Raised Garden Kit ($85) will stake into your existing soil.

The Patio Garden Kit ($95) is freestanding on your deck or patio. For soil drainage, the kit includes a drainage textile made of 40 percent post-industrial recycled content.

Both gardens can be assembled in variable dimensions, making them ideal for urban settings with soil and space constraints.

For more ideas on designing your outdoor space, be inspired at Remodelista’s Architect Visits & House Calls: Outdoors section.

Instead of wood, I'm going to experiment with rocks and corrugated iron... gives more flexibility in forming shapes.

I wish I had a patio. Of course the only thing I miss about having a house is the kitchen and the garden.

I have two raised beds and 4 large pots. I grow everything I need all season long with some left over to give to people.

These are looking good.I suppose,you could use two of them one upon an other,so it would give the stronger growing place.
