    I agree with you. I’m lazy too. That’s why I’m getting 3 garden window boxes. It’s pre-built.I? don’t need to assemble them like in the video. LOL.

    Great vid and tips! Question: What do? you think about putting one of those weed protection sheets underneath the raised garden bed? Will that hinder the roots? Is it okay to mix the dirt with compost/manure/etc?

  11. Lkoncaba

    Its not? that high off the ground.

    You’re correct but pre-drilling will keep ANY wood from? splitting.

    Its amazing how many people complain about this. It’s a simple, easy, INEXPENSIVE project. If you don’t like it or how it’s? done STFU!

    This kinda has the? feel of gardening for the well-to-do class as a quaint hobby. Expensive lumber and extra steps. You also threw out bunches of good organic material that would have fed the plants.

    3, 2x4x10 pine. Cut the third 2×4 into 3 equal lengths, screw everything together. No need for predrilling. Use a garden weasel (far superior than any shovel!) to tear up the grass and soil, add lots of compost, mix more, cover with newspaper/cardboard and use more compost to hold it down. No weeds!

    you must be? from the city…

    U made it too complicated all? u need us 4 pieces of the same size wood some screws and a screw driver or drill

  17. BackyardDiscoveryCo

    Thanks? for the great tips!

  18. RockLeeFan1

    You didn’t predrill the holes just because you didn’t want the wood split, you had to predrill them, because you had? to screw them in with that crappy screwgun.

    @tastycajun0381? yes DFW

  20. MisterJingles1000

  21. corazonalegria

    Excellent tutorial. Well filmed and explained.? Thank you!

  22. theplainest

    hello! was wondering if i could just lay some tarp down and start with? the soil on top (as the bed will be on gravel) or if i have to dig through the gravel til i hit the soil and start there?

  23. rosewood513

    I use tapping screws and you do not have to pre drill,? nice job on these thanks for the video

  24. gardenvespers777

    Whew. I built my raised beds last year and it was ALOT of work! Clay soil and Bermuda grass..and my property slopes. lol

    BUT…It was worth it. This spring it was so enjoyable to just get out there and start planting without all that work!?

    🙂

    Some people… They must be living in the middle of nowhere.. No neighbours, family or friends – people you can ask if you can borrow a drill or something.. Why buy wood.. you can maybe even get it for free from someone who is taking down his shed or whatever..
    Sorry for being? a little sarcastic, but I can’t understand why people are so stupid these days that they can’t even think of a simple solution.. BTW what is shown here is just an example..
