Galvanized Roofing Raised Bed - finished raised bed assembly on patioWith this pandemic, we would like to plant more vegetables and fruits in our backyard. We looked into pots and already made raised beds, but they were really expensive and not our dimensions.

Here is a tutorial on a galvanized raised bed we made. By using galvanized roofing material as the structure it will last much longer versus using wood.

*Note: These measurements work for us. You would have to calculate your own measurements.

Total supply cost: $70, but it could be cheaper if you use different wood/supplies. We went with cedar and galvanized screws so we can ensure this will last us a very long time!

Total Time: 1 day

Yield: 4 ft by 8 ft

Supplies:

Galvanized Roofing Raised Bed - lengths of wood and fencing
 

Steps:

  1. With an angle grinder - cut the corrugated galvanized roof panel in increments of 12" for a total of 12 pieces.
  2. Galvanized Roofing Raised Bed - cut the galvanized panel to length

  3. Optional: You could cut each end at a 45 degree angle, but this is not necessary. My measurements are 8 ft long by 4 ft wide.

  7. For a cheaper alternative, we went with 6 foot fence boards for the top border. We improvised by trimming off the fence tip and cutting to size.
