Choosing Materials for Building A Raised Garden Box

by Richard Imus on 12/26/12

There are many materials to choose from to build raised garden beds.  Most raised beds are made for wood materials and need replacement every few years and many need to be reworked seasonally.  Some people, however, prefer cement blocks for their relative low cost.

Cement blocks are a good method for building a raised garden for their longevity, but their disadvantage is they take up extra space that can be utilized for planting.  Depending on the block size either 6” or 8” an entire square foot multiplied by the length of garden can be lost verses using wood. 

Today we do have a concrete product that uses even less space than wood or block.  This new product is named “The Green Box” and the space savings is phenomenal.  In a garden space of sixteen feet by thirty two feet you can build two extra garden beds which yield more produce in two three foot by sixteen foot planting area.  This is a whopping one third (1/3) extra space versus using block.   

The Green Box is made of reinforced concrete and is a post, wall and capstones system that comes in different colors to suit your landscaping needs.  Although they are primarily used for building raised bed gardens they have other uses that include retaining walls, terraced yards, fences and yard features.  The Green Box is a very versatile product that landscaping suppliers are finding their versatility an easy sell.
