Flower beds do not have to be elaborate to enjoy fresh vegetables and beautiful flowers. With a raised garden bed, you can customize your garden bed however you want. Building a standard 3′x5′ garden bed with wood is most typical; however, you can use blocks, pavers, stone or even just a pile of soil. For this project you will need 2′x4′s, a 4′x4′ post, a tape measure, pencil and square, dill with bits and screws, a circular saw, work gloves, soil, landscape fabric, a shovel and hoe, a level, a utility knife, sawhorses, soil, a wheelbarrow, a soaker hose and some flower or vegetables. Select a location with plenty of sun where you can have access on both sides. Mark the dimensions of the area you want to have your garden bed, and dig up the sod. Do not dig too deep, but just enough to remove the sod. Check the ground with the level to make sure the base is even. Next, lay the landscaping fabric down and cut to fit. Cut the 2′x4′s and 4′x4′s to length, screw the 2′x4′ to each other, and the 4′x4′ inside each corner to form a box. Set the box in its designated area and make sure it is level. Cut any excess landscaping fabric and add your dirt or compost soil. Next plant your vegetables or flowers by pulling back the dirt. If you wish to add an irrigation system, simply set a hose in between the plants, cover with soil, and set to a timer.
