Made from naturally rot- and insect-resistant White Cedar from New England, this simple yet handsome raised garden bed is easy to put together. Precut with a mortise or tenon, each side slips into the others without tools, and then is held fast by a hardwood peg inserted into a predrilled hole. Assemble your raised bed on a level 4ft by 8ft piece of lawn or ground, fill with a good soil mixture, and you're ready to plant immediately. No need to dig up or rototill the area first, as the grass underneath will die and turn to compost! It takes about two years for the wood to weather to silver gray. The raised bed stands 8in high, 8ft long, 4ft wide, and holds about 13 30qt bags of soil mixture. Sorry, no Express or Priority delivery.
