Best size of timber for 'raised beds'
« on: October 12, 2013, 20:54 »
I am thinking of putting raised beds, or probably more correctly called 'sectioned off areas' as there'll not be much of a height difference.

Basically I'll use 150mm timber to form the beds, which will, over the next few years get deeper.

What is the best width oif timber to use. the bed lengths will be about 4m. Width will be 1200mm.

thank you

We have used 22 x 150 tanalised sarking with no issues, although it will need replacing every few years. You can line it with builders plastic if you're not keen on the tanalised timber being in contact with your soil..
