Base instructions.

Start Here.  This is the most important part of your entire build.  Think of it as your foundation because—well—it is your foundation.

 

This is the approved method for creating a smooth, stable, level rock base to build on.  The basic approach works for all of our kits and plans.  Your build is only as good as its foundation—do it right the first time!

Raised Garden Plans

I always make a nice home for my plant friends.  By raising their beds, not only do they feel more important, but their soil drains better.  Did I mention they are easier to take care of and the weed whacker has a much harder time getting to them.  Why does the weed whacker hate my flowers so much?  Our free plans are just the ticket for your raised flower beds and square foot gardening areas.  Click a name to find out more.
