How To Create a Raised Garden Bed

Gardening is an activity that allows homeowners to embrace the spring weather and get their hands dirty… literally! But, why not grab some friends and make it a weekend activity? Follow the easy instructions to create a garden you can enjoy all season! 

Price: $$

Difficulty: EASY

How To Create a Raised Garden Bed
  1. Choose an open area in your yard to set up your garden. The space should be large enough for your plants to grow and have level soil grounding.
  2. Using a tape measurer, measure the chosen space so that it is at least 48 in. x 48 in. For a spacious garden, it’s best to measure a slightly larger dimension.
  3. Carefully assemble your Home Depot’s Greenes Fence Cedar Raised Garden Bed Kit by sliding the first and second posts over each end of the first board.
  4. Then slide the second board on top of the first board to create one 7-inch-tall slide.
  5. Continue connecting the rest of the frame until you have all four corners routed. Each board should slide neatly into the grooves of another board snugly. If desired, use your Phillips screwdriver to attach the decorative tops.
  6. Place the open-bottom garden frame you created onto the level surface you have chosen for your garden.
  7. Now that you have your base, it’s time to start the gardening! Make sure to wear gardening gloves to keep your hands protected from unwanted germs. 
  8. Open your Home Depot Miracle Gro Garden Soil and evenly spread the mixture on your designated area.
  9. Using your hand shovel, dig separate holes into the ground that are about 2/3 the depth of your Organic 5 in. Big Boys and Girls Tomato Garden plants.
  10. Carefully place the tomato plants into each hole and pack the soil firmly around the plant to keep them in place. The pots are biodegradable so they are perfect for outdoor gardens!
  11. Follow these steps for all the plants and then stand back and admire your work! 

Remember for a garden to grow it needs some TLC, so make sure to water your tomato plants daily for best results!
