In this post you’re going to learn how to make a raised garden bed. The good news is you can do it for very little cost, and they are pretty easy to make. The cost runs about $100 for the wood.
However you can make your raised garden for even less by using cinder blocks. One advantage of using cinder blocks is you can create a taller bed. You will need about 50 + cinder blocks to make a 4 x 8 raised bed.
A lot of times with a little searching you can find used cinder blocks which are really inexpensive, or even free. After you’ve got your cinder blocks, or wood as shown in the video all you need to do is add some wood bark, branches, and some twigs. These items will be used to form your first layer.
As these things decompose they will act as fertilizer, and help retain water. If you want to get creative you can place some poles into the holes in the cinder blocks, fill the holes with sand, or gravel, and you now have a trellis that climbing plants will grow on.
The video shows how to make your raised survival garden bed with wood, but we thought you might like the cinder block angle as an option.
