Friday Bargain Video Feature: How To Build a Raised Garden Bed (The Home Depot )

We've been considering adding some raised garden beds to our backyard, especially because they are so accessible (no getting up and down off the ground). The guys from Home Depot are here with some easy, user-friendly steps to build a raised garden bed.

GARDEN BED MATERIALS:
6"x6" post
Galvanized Steel spike nails 10"
Weed block
Pond liner
Aggregate
Soil
Appearance Grade 1"x6"x8'

TOOLS:
18v or heavy duty drill
Irwin ½" Ship auger bit
Staple Gun
Circular Saw or Reciprocating Saw
Hammer

(Side note: They used the 6"6" posts in relation to the large scale garden plan for the roof top garden. For a more home owner friendly scale, use landscape timbers.)
