Hi everyone, it’s Phillip.
Tiffany and I love having a garden. When we moved to Colorado, the house we purchased had raised garden beds in it.
We had a wonderful harvest that first year we planted! Our oldest loved helping out, and we had these fun garden rocks to label the vegetables.
Then we moved to Houston and built a house. We were excited about having two growing seasons, but first we had to set up the garden area. We also had to get rid of the harmful bugs we weren’t accustomed to.
I took a class at our local Home Depot on raised garden beds. They were so simple to make, I put together five at home!
These make it easier for Tiffany with her Crohn’s disease to help weed without having to bend over.
How to Make DIY Raised Garden Beds
These raised garden beds are incredibly easy to make, and they’re perfect for customizing to whatever size and height you need!
The key is these Planter Wall Blocks for each corner of the garden. All you have to do is stack them as high as you need, then connect with 2×6 boards cut to the length that you need!
I then took 2×6 boards of the same length and ran them along the tops to make a shelf/bench. This will make planting and weeding more comfortable.
Our DIY Raised Garden Beds
After I put our garden beds together, they turned out great!
The kids love planting in them, and they’re easier to maintain because I built them higher. Tiffany is able to reach them easily as well.
We didn’t have a sprinkler system in the yard, so when we had it installed, we had them put a drip system in the beds as well.
Our first year gave us a great haul, and we’re excited for future plantings and harvests!
These raised garden beds go perfectly with adorable fairy gardens, too!
