Tiered Garden Raised Bed Plans

Julian 0 FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites List YOUR FAVORITES GapDice RANDOM PLAN

This step by step diy woodworking project is about diy tiered garden raised garden bed plans. The project features instructions for building a small corner planter for your garden. If you want to enhance the look of your backyard, you should consider building a tiered garden bed. Work with attention and make adjustments to the design and overall dimensions if you want to get the job done in a professional manner.

When buying the lumber, you should select the planks with great care, making sure they are straight and without any visible flaws (cracks, knots, twists, decay). Investing in cedar or other weather resistant lumber is a good idea, as it will pay off on the long run. Use a spirit level to plumb and align the components, before inserting the galvanized screws, otherwise the project won’t have a symmetrical look. If you have all the materials and tools required for the project, you could get the job done in about a day.

Building the bottom planter

Building the bottom planter

The first step of the project is to build the bottom planter. Cut the components from 2×6 lumber and drill pilot holes at both ends of the long slats. Align the edges and make sure the corners are square before inserting the 2 1/2″ screws.

Assembling the second planter

Continue the project by assembling the second planter. Cut the components from 2×6 lumber and drill pilot holes at both ends of the long beams. Insert 2 1/2″ screws and make sure the corners are right-angled. Align the edges with attention.

Fiting the corner supports

Select the location for the raised garden bed and lay the bottom planter. Fit landscape fabric inside the bottom planter and staple it to the wooden slats. Install the second planter and fit the 2×2 corner supports to lock everything together tightly. Drill pilot holes through the vertical supports and insert 2 1/2″ screws.
