Better than Wood Garden Beds-
Durable GreenBED Recycled Wood Chip Composite Boards!
Wood Garden Beds take time, Cedar is Expensive, and Assembly is Hard.
When you look at the whole picture, Our kits just make dollars and sense!
Most wood (even cedar or redwood) garden beds will begin to rot, crack, warp or splinter in a very short period of time and within 6 to 8 years you will need to replace them again. Plastic beds can crack under the sun in a short period as well. This forces you to spend money and rebuild beds rather than focus on your garden. Metal garden beds are a source for cuts and scrapes.

The Best Woods for Garden Beds are:
- Black Locust
These are all reasonably long lasting woods when in contact with the soil.
Cedar and Redwood sapwood can last 10+ years however it is difficult to find.
Most is second growth and not sapwood which will only last as long as fir and pine.
Black Locust, cypress and juniper can go 6-10 years but is regionally available, not widely distributed.
Widely available fir and pine is suitable but only expect 5 years or less before structural failure.
Cedar and redwood are naturally water-resistant but can be expensive and hard to find. Hemlock, fir and pine are suitable materials for raised beds but aren't very long-lasting.
Do NOT use treated lumber or railroad ties.
They contain toxic chemicals that will leach into your garden.
Durable GreenBeds are NON Toxic Garden Beds!
Durable Green Beds Cost you LESS over 10 years than wood Garden Beds!
To get an idea of the real cost of owning a Greenbed versus a traditional wood raised bed, we need to look at cost over the lifetime of your beds. First, there is the initial purchase cost, of course, but ownership can also bring substantial costs for installing, maintaining and replacement of your beds over time.
How does a GreenBed compare to building my own wood bed?
Review the chart below and to see which choice is better for you. This chart compares a cedar raised bed (4’x8’x12”) and a Durable GreenBed (4’x8’x13”) kit. (Already you have 1 inch more root space and they are delivered FREE to your door.)
With standard wood raised beds you will need to replace your beds every 6 or so years. Why keep paying and paying? With Greenbeds, you assemble them once and forget about it.
When you factor in the time and hassle to build a wood raised bed, not to mention the short life span, the choice to buy a Durable Greenbed is obvious.
It’s time to get ready to garden!
