How to Build a Raised Vegetable Bed?

Print Friendly, PDF & Email



Let’s build a raised garden bed! 

You can customize the broads you need, and Home Depots will cut them for you.
The broads that we got are 2 “x 12”
Long sides: 2 pieces of 2” x 12”, 6 ft in length.
Short sides: 2 pieces of 2” x 12”, 6 ft in length.

16 pieces (3 inches) deck nails

Soil types:
7 bags top soil (60%)
5 bags compost (40%)
1 bag of ground cover

To calculate the required soil:
H x L x W = cubic feet of soil

So, for example: 1 ft x 2 ft x 6 ft = 12 cuft
60% topsoil = 12 x 0.6 = 7.2 cuft (1 cubic foot = bags, need to buy 7 bags)
40% compost = 12 x 0.4 = 4.8 cuft (need to buy 5 bags)
