Re: Build Your Own Raised Beds

My husband and I have made many raised beds. We attach our side boards with screws, not nails. We also put L brackets on the outside of the corners. Ours are made of redwood, available in California. The advantage to a raised bed for us is, we can line the bottom with gopher wire. No missing veggies from underground creatures. We also have a real problem with sparrows in the late winter and spring. With the raised beds it is easy to attach some 2x2 to the sides and drape some bird netting over the bed.
