Coincidence I see this now. I put together my first raised garden bed last week and just planted my first seeds less than an hour ago. Giving square foot gardening a try.

Mine is the same length and width as this, but only 6 inches deep. Total cost for the build was about $30 and didn't require me to cut or nail anything.

I didn't cut anything myself, just bought the lumber from Home Depot along with 4 of these blocks [homedepot.com]. Very useful for those considering building one.

You could diy this easy for $20 in wood

She's making a no frills 4' x 4' pine frame. DIY is still cheaper. But comparing apples to apples more realistically around $50 here.

Although if I was going in that direction I'd use pressure treated & fancier post caps than spec'd. Just because to me chosing DIY over prebuilt is about cost vs effort & usually quality upgrades.

3 x $10 @ 2' x 8 ' cedar board = $30
6 x $2.68 Cheapest wood post caps = $16.08
50 x $.82 5/16-in x 3-5/8-in Black Ceramic Hex-Head Exterior Structural Wood Screws (bag Count)
SubTotal $46.90
Tax & total $49.83

You could, if you had room for all the tools and materials, and area to work on it.

Okay. Why?

Edit much layer - for some reason I didn't see the link originally. But now that I have it does make dense to avoid unnecessary chemicals. Thanks.

Only cedar or cypress is allowed if one wants to meet organic certification guidelines.

I don't think it's right math based on the pic it looks like there is:
3 middle section wood
10 side wood which is stack on upon each other

Also it's hard to DIY that kind of post unless you have expertise

Any one have guess how much it would be in wood?

cost me about $12 of rough cut and some of their free scraps. The dirt to fill mine (8x4) cost more

LOL, an article from 2003 about not using old stocks of wood that has been banned from manufacture?

I picked up a number of raised garden kits the past few years at the end of the season for 75% or more off. Buying offseason is often times the best, but for those who want them now there may be deals to be found here. Thanks OP.

Old scrap wood, paint and pack of screws...mine has held up for 10 years now. Looks good too! Granted, if you're 18 and want it to last a lifetime...don't do what I did. I only expect 2-3 more years out of it, but I'll just do it again. (For those on a budget)
