Our Opinion


Are you tired of your raised garden beds falling apart after just one season? Are you constantly replacing planter boxes that just can’t withstand the elements? Well, fear not, because we’ve got the ultimate guide on how to build durable raised garden beds that will last for years to come.

Here at the parent game, we know a thing or two about building structures that can stand the test of time. So, sit back, relax, and let us show you how to create the most robust planter boxes your garden has ever seen.

Step 1: Choose the Right Materials

The first step in building durable raised garden beds is choosing the right materials. We recommend using cedar or redwood for their natural resistance to rot and insects. These woods may cost a bit more upfront, but they will save you money in the long run by lasting much longer than cheaper alternatives.

Step 2: Proper Construction

Once you have your materials selected, it’s time to get building. Make sure to construct your planter boxes with strong joints and secure hardware to ensure stability. Consider using metal brackets or screws instead of nails to prevent the wood from splitting over time.

Step 3: Consider Drainage

Proper drainage is key to the longevity of your raised garden beds. Make sure to drill holes in the bottom of your planter boxes to allow excess water to escape. You can also add a layer of gravel or small rocks to the bottom to further improve drainage.

Step 4: Protective Coating

To protect your planter boxes from the elements, consider adding a protective coating or stain. This will help to prevent water damage, UV rays, and insect infestations that can quickly degrade the wood.

Step 5: Regular Maintenance

Even the most durable raised garden beds will require some maintenance from time to time. Make sure to regularly check for any signs of damage or wear and tear, and address them promptly to prevent more extensive damage down the line.

And there you have it! With these simple tips, you can build durable raised garden beds that will stand the test of time. So, grab your tools and get started on creating a beautiful and long-lasting garden for years to come. Happy gardening!
