Re: Raised Beds for Your Garden: Framing Materials

I have been using raised beds for quite a while now. I use pressure treated lumber since it will last so long. I started out using 2" x 10" x 12' but that got rather expensive for the number of beds I wanted to make. I have now switched to using 1" x 6" x 12' which cut the cost to build the beds by more than half. My plan this year is to make a gravel walkway between the beds. I absolutly love raised bed gardening, it not only looks good but makes managing the garden so much easier.

How much rabbit manure would you recommend per 100 sq. ft.?
