Building the raised beds was a bit of a project. I probably spent more time and effort than needed, but it was a fun project. I built the garden beds in the spring of 2006. I used 4×4 cedar posts for the corners and 1×6 cedar boards for the sides. Each of the four beds are roughly 4′ wide by 8′ long. I learned a lot along the way and if I could just press Ctrl-Z and undo it all I would certainly make some changes. But to re-do it now would be a lot of work and my changes are not quite that important. 🙂
If I get more time, I may revisit this page and outline some of the details and changes I would make.
