How to Make A Raised Garden Bed

Suburban gardeners looking for more space need look no further than the front or back lawn. There’s nothing wrong with having a lawn, but they are water guzzlers and, face it, most of us use very little of it if any at all.

I used the plans at WWW.EASYWOODWORK.ORG to build my own – I highly recommend you visit that website and check their plans out too. They are detailed and super easy to read and understand unlike several others I found online. The amount of plans there is mind-boggling… there’s like 16,000 plans or something like that for tons of different projects. Definitely enough to keep me busy with projects for many more years to come haha Go to WWW.EASYWOODWORK.ORG if you want some additional plans :)
