Box Gardens

I’ve finished putting together our garden boxes! They are 4 feet x 4 feet, made from left over 6 inch x 6 inch x 4 feet pressure treated beams. Not perfectly level, but it’ll get the job done.

I’m very excited to see these boxes work. One of our neighbors highly recommended the box garden approach as outlined in the book, Square Foot Garden, ( ). We’ve been working really hard to deweed, and tarp the ground underneath to get these boxes ready and in place. This garden is coming together nicely. It’s our first real garden, since this is our first house. I’m really excited to start growing melons and tomatoes and grapes, oh my.

    You will be sorry if you use TREATED lumber of any kind….chemicals will eventually leak into your garden beds.
    Always use UNtreated wood. Redwood or cedar will last forever
    OR just use plain pine untreated wood. You can replace them every few years when they began to break down. I have used plain wood for years and they still work fine.
