Our Search for Easy DIY Garden Beds
When we decided it was time to expand our garden area and transition from pots to raised beds, we went on a hunt for good quality products. A very helpful employee in the Home Depot garden center pointed us in the direction of a single product that literally changed the way we garden.
The Key to Easy Garden Beds
She led us down an aisle in the garden area and showed us a grooved cinder block. This block has four perfect cutouts in it where you slide wood into place, thus making the world’s easiest garden bed.
The best part about it is that it allows you to easily add onto your current set up and create an attractive network of raised beds. You can select any configuration you want and adjust them to any height you want. The flexibility alone is a huge selling point, not to mention the ease of use.
We chose to create 12″ tall 4′ X 4′ raised garden beds using these blocks. We did this by stacking two of the cinder blocks on top of each other and simply sliding two pieces of wood into each of the grooves. No nails or any other hardware is required to create these garden beds. The grooves simply hold the wood in place and keep the soil inside. Below is an example of how this will look once it’s finished.
