raised bed gardening

greenspun.com : LUSENET : ACountryPlace : One Thread

Quick question: I am wanting to construct sides to improve my raised mounds into raised beds. What type of lumber would be best? treated lumber is not a primary desire, not sure about leaching of the treatments into the soil and thus into the vegetables. Thanks

bricks, stone,, or I used logs, some of the pine ones will need replaced next year, but the oak logs are still holding strong. Use whatever is eye appealing, cheap, and easy
