I'd love input from you all if you have built rasied beds before.
Am I doing it right?
- Looking to get 8 boards that are 1"x12"x16' # 2 Pine from a local lumber place here, in Plymouth.
- Seems like the boards themselves will be about $190.00, including tax. Does that seem like a lot of money? I compared to Lowes and Home Depot and they seemed to be right about the same price.
- Can I seal the boards so they last longer if I line the inside and the sides of the bed with landscaping fabric like so?:
I don't want chemicals leeching into the soil, but I also don't want to re-build my bed frames every 4 years. That could get pricey! My goal is to get the beds built by next weekend, March 20th!
