  1. Midwest Gradening says:

    Waterborne, Creosote, and Oil-borne (penta) are the three broad classes of
    preservatives typically used when pressure-treating wood.
    Wood treated with waterborne preservatives is typically used in
    residential, commercial and industrial building structures. Creosote is
    primarily used for treating railroad ties, guardrail posts, and timbers
    used in marine structures. Oil-borne (penta) is most often used for
    treating utility poles and cross arms.
    Several typical waterborne preservatives used in building applications
    include: Chromated Copper Arsenate (CCA-C), Alkaline Copper Quat (ACQ-C,
    ACQ-D, ACQ-D Carbonate), Micronized Copper Quat (MCQ), Copper Azole (CA-B &
    CA-C, μCA-C) and Sodium Borates (SBX/DOT).
    These treatments are often referred to by trade names such as: Wolmanized
    Natural Select™ (Copper Azole), Preserve and NatureWood® (ACQ), MicroPro™,
    Smart Sense™ (MCQ), and Advance Guard® (Borate). Each preservative usually
    has a number of variations available so care should be exercised when
    specifying treated wood.
    Some different oil-borne preservatives that are used are Chlorpyrifos/IBPC,
    Copper Naphthenate and Pentachlorphenol. One advantage of these treatments
    is that they do not create swelling in the wood, but there is generally an
    added cost over water-borne treatments as well as availability in some

    Treated wood, railroad ties? TOXIC!! Don’t do it.

    I will do just that My wife wants one because she has trouble bending… I
    will keep track and get back As I see it right now I have free wood from a
    retired neighbor and brand new 4×8 sheets of corrugated are roughly $13.00
    each and 3 will be needed for a 4×8 bed 4′ tall which puts the plant bases
    just above waste level now if I can find some free metal from a

  4. MisterSoul99 says:

    I have seen raised beds made from metal roofing but the seem way deeper
    than needed, almost no plants root that deep, seems the roots mostly fan
    out not down. Since you brought up the idea, give us a price of how much a
    4×8 bed would cost made from metal roofing.

  5. d.b. Sorensen says:

    nailing corrugated metal inside the stakes will last who knows how long
    just set the post in a bag of concrete sheets new are 8′ long 4′ wide so a
    4′ deep raised bed will make a dandy compost bed too!!

    I’ve got a cinder block bed as can plant marigolds all around
    them if you want to cover the unsightliness of them or some other plant,
    small hedge, etc. I think they look ok, though. I stacked mine 2 blks high
    for around 40 bucks. They will never rot and if you move you can take them
    with you. My only complaint, is they are heavy for me now that I’ve had
    back surgery. And yup you can plant things in the holes. They also have
    those little flat blocks now, too.

  8. Alicia Davidson says:

    Thank you for this tip! My husband and I built 3 of these over the last 2
    weekends! fast and cheap, that’s soooo much! :)

  9. Jack Marston says:

    The work aspect of all these boxes out there fair to substantial. You want
    cheap & no work, go to a local sheet metal shop & ask for a 20 gauge sheet
    of galvanized sheet metal shear cut 4 pieces 10′ long by 12″ wide , take it
    home, lay it end to end , put a bunch of tech screws in it, ether make 1
    big round planter like 13′ in diameter or 2- 6 footers and put the dirt in
    it, no braces no hammering , no stakes, no trouble, round needs no brace,

  10. MarlenusofAR says:

    I made 2 4×4 raised beds that cost me a total of $40 ea, that includes the
    boards, latches on the inside and outside, and soil. For the bottom, I put
    down cardboard to keep the grass from growing. Next time, instead of paying
    $2.79 ea for the boards, I’m going to use Cedar. Cost 1x6x16 cost $13.95,
    which can be cut to a 4×4.

  11. Owl Jones says:

    Concrete contains cement, F-ash, C-ash, and about a half dozen chemicals
    and additives. I know. I made it. That said, making a raised bed out of it
    or treated lumber is fine. Neither is probably going to kill you. *I am not
    an expert nor is this legal advice. LOL

  12. kenni411 says:

    i hear a cock in the back ground lmao !

  13. Chris Arnini says:

    like that idea too, lots of that lumber around us so being able to use it
    and have it hold up for a least a few years is fine with me

  14. MisterSoul99 says:

    I have one box out of cedar… 1×10 boards I guess, it started rotting
    fairly quick. Oddly enough I used OSB scraps (painted) for the ends on a
    box and I have gotten 4 or 5 years out of that.

  15. stymye says:

    it’s completely rotten below the soil line .. but I can’t complain , 8
    years with yellow pine. I was thinking 5 years at best.

  16. MisterSoul99 says:

    Alicia, if you can avoid stepping on or prying against those sides,(when
    cultivating the soil) they will last a long time, good luck.

  17. MisterSoul99 says:

    YEah now is a good time to get those raised beds made up, let me know how
    yours come out.

  18. 1spicytomato says:

    love my cinder block garden plus i dug down 2 ft first garden is thriving
    and producing and cinder can be painted real nice with special paint

  19. Rebecca Allen says:

    Nice video. I wouldn’t use railroad ties becasue of the chemicals in them.
    Best wishes.

  20. Momma Rabbit says:

    Wow you made this look so easy and affordable. We are Exterior/Interior
    painters and have painted many home Exterior’s that used Concrete board, he
    is painting a home now that is over 6,000 square feet and the home’s
    exterior has concrete board on it. I am thinking maybe I can have him scan
    the jobsite and see if there is any left over scraps that will work(he is a
    tighty also) if not it is cheap enough to purchase. I do have a question,
    can we use painted concrete board on the exterior?

  21. OhHowHappyGardener says:

    Looks like what you’ve shared would work. Thanks for the cool idea!

  22. David Johnson says:

    Thanks for posting …i used some left over cedar lumber we had used to
    make a picnic table. One concern, around our bed, I put a 5 foot wire
    (deer) fence, and used 6 PT pine posts. These are in the ground (outside
    the box) do you think the chemicals are still a risk?

  23. MisterSoul99 says:

    Thats actually a good idea, to locate cheap material for a raised bed,
    often they have culled lumber banded together for quick sale.

    you can be poisoned by copper, that’s why you don’t use acids in copper
    cookware. It causes copper to come off the pot and enter your food.
