Diy Raised Bed Plans

If you want to build grow vegetables in your garden, but a garden raised bed is too simple for your needs, you should consider building a mini-greenhouse. As we will show you in this project, you just need to make a basic frame out of 2×6 lumber and to lock the components with 2×2 lumber at corners. Afterwards, you need to install arched pieces of PVC and cover the structure with film. In this manner, you can increase the temperature inside the mini-greenhouse and grow vegetables even in cold weather. Choose quality raised garden bed plans before starting the actual construction.

The first step of the woodworking project is to build the frame of the mini-greenhouse. Use 2×6 lumber slats to build the frame and 2×2 slats to lock the components into place.

Drill pilot holes to prevent the wood from splitting and insert 3″ galvanized lag screws. Countersink the head of the screws, to get a nice appearance.

Continue the project by digging holes into the ground and setting the raised bed into place. Install landscaping fabric inside the garden bed and fill it with soil.

If you really want to create a mini-greenhouse, you should install hoop arched, using 1/4″ PVC. Set the arches into place and cover them with polyethylene film. Work with attention and with great care, if you want to get the job done as a professional.

 

There are many things you should take into account when building a raised garden bed by yourself  First of all, you need to use quality lumber and professional plans. Use proper tools to make the cuts and check if the corners are right-angled.
