Post and Panel Raised Beds with Galvanized sides - Buy as a complete kit or components
New!! The Farmer D Post and Panel Garden raised bed Kits are the newest and most innovative raised beds from Farmer D. This new design allows greater flexibility in size and shape. These beds are sold as a combination of corner posts and side panels. These beds are deeper than our classic notched raised beds - 14" rather than 10".
You can build any symmetrical design or just larger size beds. (For example for a 3'x10' bed, order 3 pairs of posts, 1 pair of 3ft side panels and 2 pairs of 5 ft side panels). Ideal for square foot gardening! Inside dimensions are in 12" increments.
Made in USA from FSC certifed western red cedar.
Available with Galvanized sides, Cedar sides in natural or colors
Assembly is as easy as screwing Philips head screws into the corner posts. Side panels have pre-drilled holes for the screws. All screws included.
A raised bed is the answer to "easy" growing of vegetables, herbs and flowers.
We recommend high-yield container gardening to help "reduce the use" of chemical fertilizers/herbicides/pesticides for healthier and more naturally grown vegetables, herbs, and flowers. These raised bed kits help extend the growing season, make outstanding starter beds for larger scale gardeners, and can also be used in greenhouses (great organizer). *Please allow 2-3 days for shipping.
Why Raised Bed Gardening?
More production per square foot - Records at Dawes Arboretum near Newark, OH. indicate an average of 1.24 lbs. per square foot of vegetables as compared to about .6 for the traditional home garden.
Improved soil conditions - Water, air and roots all have difficulty moving through soil compressed by tractors, tillers, or human feet. Not so in a raised bed. Saturated soils get a dose of lime every spring via percolation. In a raised bed, gravity reduces percolation to a trickle, resulting in an acidity that can be maintained in the 5.8 to 6.8 range that vegetables prefer.
Use less fertilizer - Concentrate on the growing area and not on the compact soil in the paths.
Use less water - The water goes only where it is needed.
Pest control - if burrowing rodents are abundant, the bottom of the bed can be lined with poultry wire or hardware cloth.
Less weeds - As with pest control, lining the bottom of the bed with plastic, mulch or cloth stops the weeds. Weeds that do appear come up out of the loose soil very easily.
Extend the growing season - Beds can be planted earlier in the spring and will produce later in the fall because the soil warms faster and cools slower.
