Grow vegetables, flowers and greenery above ground using raised garden beds. This enclosure is made from recycled plastic and wood fibers for the authentic look of lumber with improved weather resistance. Garden beds come ready to assemble right out of the box and take an estimated 13 1/2 cubic feet, 1/2 cubic yard or about 1,400-lbs. of soil. Control the richness of the soil and irrigation for a successful plot, even in hard-to-plant areas like yards with gravelly or difficult clay soil. Composite lumber raised gardens also make it easier to control for weeds, insects and other outdoor pests - we're also thrilled that it's eco-friendly!
