How long do these last , on average? It's going to be out side all year.

Well Garden mama it’s made out of concrete. So are the aqueducts still standing all throughout Europe, which the Romans put in when Christ walked the earth. Like curbs and sidewalks. They should last a good long time for you.

You don't have to use thinner boards if you use Trex. The people in the store will tell you 2x6 and 2x8 Trex doesn't exist, but they're wrong. I asked to look at the catalog myself, and was able to show them that 2x6 and 2x8 Trex DOES exist (near the end of the catalog), and can be special ordered. It's expensive, but it looks and works GREAT!

Should you use Pressure treated wood for veggie bed?

Asked by Sanchez April 21, 2019
10
Answers

Mostly YES, in rare cases MAYBE NOT. (1.) MCA-treated wood is safe and the best choice, (2.) MCQ is also safe, (2.) ACQ-treated wood is probably safe but not as good as MCA/MCQ, and (3.) and CCA is potentially not-safe but hasn't been available commercially since 2003. Here is the background... the EPA phased out "CCA" wood preservation in 2003 because it contained arsenic which is a poison at high concentration and carcinogen at low concentrations. It also contained and a soluble form of copper that could leach into the environment easily (good for repelling things that rot wood), but copper can cause health problems at high concentrations for some people. Scientific studies actually measured how much arsenic and copper could leach into soil or water. Other studies showed that plants could take up these chemicals, however the amounts were very low, and if eaten the amounts transferred from food were so low that they were at "safe" levels or not even measurable at all. The EPA leaned towards safety and banned CCA from residential use but said what was already installed in homes could stay in place. Industry switched to ACQ, which got rid of the arsenic problem. Nowadays, ACQ is the most common form of "pressure-treated" wood and is best for indoor use because the form of copper can leach into soil when in contact with soil. Again, scientific studies have looked at this and the high amounts of copper that might cause problems to people and animals would kill the plants first, so you'd have to be eating dirt with copper in it for there to be problem (no joke). The MCA and MCQ are newer treatments in which the form of copper is more stable ("micronized"), so you will find these in pressure-treated wood rated as "ground contact." People who think pressure-treated wood is bad are probably reacting to old reputation of CCA, but unless you find pressure-treated wood that had been sitting around for 15+ years, it's not a factor nowadays. BOTTOM LINE: pressure-treated lumber rated as "ground contact" is safe for growing plants and vegetables that you will eat -- and MCA is slightly better than MCQ, if you can find it.

Answers

You can use any length of 2" x 6" lumber between the two blocks. However, using 4' or 6' long lumber will be more sturdy than using say 8' or 10' or 12' long lumber. If you choose to use long boards then you might want to drive supporting stakes on each side of the board for better support and to prevent warping.

Are these blocks sealed in any way? I am considering altering the color a bit with a concrete stain.

Home Depot sample planter box uses two block high with three 2x4's instead of two 2x6's. Looks like the middle 2x4 helps stabilize the two stacked blocks. I like the look better, too.

Can this be used with galvanized sheet metal?

Asked by EscoHomesteader June 6, 2018
7
Answers

Thank you for your question. Galvanized sheet metal is typical too thin and malleable to be used with this product. Hence, we do not recommend.

Are there any reasons one could not use one 2x12 with 2 stacked blocks (versus two 2x6s)?

Asked by mw March 21, 2019

Answers

Not a problem, just make the top of the boards even with the tops of the blocks for the cap boards. Many of my raised beds were built with reclaimed lumber and many different size pieces.

My Little Peace Of Ground Magic
Thanks to these OldCastle Planter Blocks, I designed and built a series of raised herb garden beds off of my kitchen patio that are all connected and terraced up my awkward backyard slope. I don’t have a saw, so the helpful staff at Home Depot cut the 2x6x8 pressure treated boards in half, and they even brought the materials outside and loaded them into my SUV! I ended up with four raised and terraced garden beds, two on each side, plus a center access area that I filled with river rock and flagstones. I added solar lights that bring extra ambiance and magic at night! The result is even better than I envisioned, designed, and built myself! And I can’t wait to build some more! Remember touse the 2’ rebar to drive them through the blocks and ground for extra stability. My step by step process, with photos, is on my Instagram @MyLittlePeaceOfGround https://www.instagram.com/p/CCpV6vvlTA9/?igshid=dvnqvwfzdcc7

These planter wall blocks are just the thing I was looking for to create a set of raised garden beds. They enable you to customize your garden bed in accordance with your taste and need. I'm building mine 5 blocks high, so that we don't strain our backs to bend over to work in the garden. Making the beds taller does present some interesting engineering challenges. The taller the wall, the more force there is exerted on the wall by the soil inside. I'm using planks on top of the raised bed walls not only for a nice looking finish, but also to tie the corners together so the walls don't lean out. For the wooden walls, I'm using pressurer treated lumber for appearance and longevity. Don't worry, modern pressure treated lumber does not contain arsenic any longer. But to keep the chemicals out of the soil, I treated the inside facing surfaces of the lumber with boiled linseed oil. I also lined the inside of the walls with garden barrier cloth. The top planks are satin stained common redwood.

Zoya’s Raised Garden Bed
These Oldcastle blocks are awesome! My 18 year old daughter decided she could make a garden bed after we discovered this system. I am so proud that she planned her 3 ft. wide X 12 ft. long garden planter and virtually completed it independently. I helped with the saw. I highly recommend them! Can’t wait to buy more next year to add to her creation in our garden area. You won’t regret it!
