Yesterday I told you about my new PVC raised gardening boxes in the far top left corner. At $59.97 each on sale, they certainly were not a cheap way to build raised garden beds especially since between the two I ended up with 16 square feet of growing space. My husband doesn't like the new PVC beds so he picked up some spruce to build me a wooden raised bed.
The cost for the lumber and brackets totaled $38.45, considerably less expensive per square foot than the PVC beds. I've had wooden square foot garden beds last well over five years so if you want neat and tidy raised beds that are easy to set up for square foot gardening, untreated spruce is more than reasonably priced.
