You can build these yourself for like $10 or less if you have a drill.

How so? I've been meaning to get these but found them way too expensive. Can you point me to some sources where I can get lumber for a reasonable price?

I just go to Home Depot or Lowes and get two 8' 2x4s. They will even cut to measure for free if it's less than six cuts I think. I don't think I've paid more than $5-$6 per board.

Your dimensions are not the same as the listing here. You need to buy more than 2 8' 2x4s. Regular pine will also quickly rot in wet soil.

Rather than paying money for a raised bed which is basically just some wood and attachments to make it a frame (and often has the side effect of inviting pests,) just put some cardboard directly on the ground, compost and plant.

Charles Dowding's videos are an awesome resource. Great for learning about gardening or just relaxing.

$10 is probably a bit of an exaggeration as a DIY for a 8x4 that's a respectable height and material, but yeah it's not far off from the message.

When those landscaping logs went on sale for $2.50 a pop at Lowe's, stacked 'em four logs high for 16" inches of clearance. Three logs per layer (sides were 1/2 log), 12 x $2.50 = $30. 8x steel stakes for maybe $0.75 a pop if you're not buying in bulk. Could get away with about same with a sale on some untreated pine that'll last you a good few years.

Was raised by a single mom and never really learned much handy growing up. Building beds and framing out the basement were really my first time getting my feet wet with some actual hardware. Felt good and a great motivator to expand the skillset. Things like garden beds I'd really encourage folks to build as independently as possible.

At first glance it would be a good price if it was cedar. For regular it doesn't seem special. As for making it yourself of course you can make it cheaper. Everything is cheaper if you DIY but likely is traded for time.

Also consider size. A 4" tall raised bed is really short, especially if you want veggies with halfway deep roots. The above bed was almost 10" so to build a comparable one would take 2 6x8 stacked on each other. One is $10 so you're looking at $40 (not counting screws) to build a 4x4x10 tall bed. Or $80 for two of them (though you can cut $10 by joining them like this). Suddenly the price for this is good.

This year I built 2 beds 4x4x6 and it's a little shallow but a fair compromise on half the price. It took a little time having to predrill all the holes and get everything lined up. I researched to do it right and bought wire for the bottom to keep critters out. This fall I'll add removable fence. Plus you have to fill it with quality stuffing so it can really add up. If I had to do it again I would get a kit like this, taller, prettier, and less time, or perhaps a cedar kit. Though taller would require more filling, doubling the price of that. One reason to go with a short one but that is only expense the first year. After that just a little fertilizer.

Also when they say you can do everything in 1 square foot garden they are lying... My zucchini took up a good 3 sf, same with squash, and the cucumber pushed 4 even though part of it was on a trellis. I followed a homemade organic soil mix and it acted like miracle grow.

Yeah zucchini's are horrible manspreaders— they really need their own space. That said I think square foot gardening is a fantastic approach. Has worked really well for me.

I believe cedar is recommended wood because it naturally holds up without being treated but a new cheaper gardening trend is make raised beds out of any untreated wood you can get cheap. So your raised bed may only last 2 years but you also don't have to dedicate a spot for it long term, you can start gardening now, cheap, it will help you get through these food shortages and rising food costs. There are videos on YouTube with people making raised beds out of rocks, branches or anything else they may have access to for free because remember its not about being pretty it initially startes because people had bad soil to grow things in so they adapated. Well now it git commercialized we can adapt again to save money.
