Re: Build Your Own Raised Beds

Juniper, in my opinion, is the best choice for raised garden beds. Juniper is long-lasting, beautiful, and chemical-free lumber that is being harvested in in the Northwest. The selective harvest supports local family-run mills committed to restoring Northwest ecosystems. Juniper lasts much longer than cedar or redwood, up to 50 years or more in ground contact applications. Juniper is especially suited for this purpose because of its naturally high oil content that is decay and rot resistant. It is chemical free! Do you really want to use chemically treated lumber where you grow your food? I built mine out of Juniper and love that fact that they will last and I am helping the environment. Google Restoration Juniper to learn more about it and where it can be purchased.
