I have two questions: first, what size boards do you use for the top, and second, how do you attach the top boards to the base? Thank you

Asked by JohnW April 9, 2021

Answer

The stability of the raised garden/flower bed will be best determined by a level foundation and using rebar. You can also use a construction adhesive to secure the units together. It is recommended that your foundation base is 4-6" and compacted. The wood will have to be 2" thick and the block is designed for 6" in width basically any wood with 2" thickness will work.

Great Tiered Garden Solution
After leveling of the site, everything else was very simple to assemble. *Get the 1/2" (or I actually recommend **3/8") rebar in a longer length and pound it in deeper if stacking more than 4 blocks high (Yes, you need the rebar & the smaller diameter is easier to pass through). The 2x6 boards ended up being the better option because you have more versatility on how high if you plan to build a tiered garden. For irrigation, we just laid out a drip hose and drilled a hole through the top boards to hold the hose as it moved from garden bed to garden bed. We added a hinged bench ( made with a 2x6 and a 12x2 and 5 sturdy hinges with brackets underneath for stability), to store gardening supplies and make seating for the fire pit in this area. Also provides easier reach for upper beds. The only minor issue was that we had to punch through the center hole in the bottom of nearly every block... it wasn't difficult, just inconvenient. The finished product came out beautiful. Although the higher lumber cost put us over the budget, we are still glad we chose this method.

Great for the Beginning Gardener
I purchased 16 of these to make two small raised vegetable beds. They are easy to use and great for making small raised garden beds I stacked them two high and used cedar fence boards to connect them. I used two cedar fence boards per side sandwiched together and cut small shim blocks to wedge them tight. The cedar fence boards were much cheaper than cedar dimensional lumber. This worked out great because I could make the beds whatever size I wanted. Also with these planter wall blocks, if I want to make my raised beds larger next year or move them, all I have to do is take everything apart and all materials can be re-used.

I was jealous of my 27 year old's gardening successes!
My son's DC apartment has raised beds that are well built and were installed by his landlord. Since he had a great time growing veggies last summer, I wanted to do the same. I found these blocks in a Youtube vid. It was easy to create, even for a 60 year old like me! The blocks were heavy (for me), and the lumber awkward, but one person can definately do this. I took my tme and really thought it out, cos I didn't want to have to move those blocks more than once. The bed came together really quickly over 2 w/e. For Mother's Day, the son & his GF did all the heavy lifting of the soil and compost - even planted the innaugural row of lettuce! I'f this summer goes well, the bed is positioned so that I can easily addon to it with more blocks. Nice product for old geezers like me.

Great easy product
I used these stacked 3 high for our 300 gallon koi pond. They made building it so much easier and it looks great. Plus in the future replacing boards will be easier.

Awesome Project with my Kids
My kids have a YouTube Channel “Fun Tips For Kids” and we did a family Project: Garden Bed, using 12 units of planter wall blocks, lumbers, rebars and paint. The result was INCREDIBLE. You can see in the link below: https://youtu.be/6IkK1q5F9JE Have a blessed day❤️
