Custom Raised Beds Built to Size

Custom Raised Beds Built to Size
$140 for 15” tall 4’x8’ raised garden bed made out of 2”x8” Douglas Fir (as seen in first photo). 
$190 for 15” tall 4’x8’ raised garden bed made out of 1”x8” Cedar.

$55 for Trellis along 8’ length.

Will precut and predrill pieces and assemble in desired location. Soil mix is not included. Willing to do custom sizes, but prices will vary depending on if it is less or more wood.

I am located in Drexel Hill, but willing to deliver the raised bed, as long as its within the area.

Garden Gate

Finally enclosed the only part of our yard that didn't have a fence, the driveway. Our youngest is definitely a runner, so this gate will be very useful in keeping him in the yard. My plan is to finish off the gate as vertical garden panels. With strawberries and lettuce growing on them.

Arugula Harvest

We harvested the arugula from the raised bed this past weekend, and a few broccoli leaves that were shading the tomatoes and cucumbers.

Refinished Table & Trellis

I finally got around to refinishing our outdoor dinning table. I sanded it down and applied a few coats of tung oil. Hopefully now with a few coats a year, it will last us a long time.

I finished the second trellis, minus the netting. The kid did a good job of holding it up while I attached it the raised bed.

Martín planting his cucumber

Martín decided to grow cucumber in his raised bed this year. So this evening he and I got outside to starting the seeds. He was so excited to grow his "pepinos".

Dill and Flowers

Last night I started some dill down in the basement to get established before going out into a pot in the deck. I also am making another try at growing some hardy hibiscus for Julia. I had started some when we were living in Georgia still, but they all died I the move to Pennsylvania. I am also going to try to grow some Black-eyed Susan for the front yard. The rest of the plants that were started a few weeks ago have started making they move to their permanent locations outside, but their are still some zucchini, yellow squash, and all the basil and pepper plants waiting to go.

Tomatoes & Okra

Yesterday started transplanting our tomatoes and okra into the raised beds. I think we may have finally gotten past all the colder nights where it drops into the low 40's.
