Cedarbrook has a full line of cedar raised bed garden kits
All you need is a hammer!
Assembling the raised cedar bed requires only a hammer to secure the rod thru the corners.
Watch our helpful raised garden bed installation video online for assembly instruction, additional tips and ideas and motivation.
The ends of the boards are notched so they interlock together for superior strength. They are also pre-drilled through the tops to receive a 3/8" solid aluminum rod which holds all the corners and joints together. The kits are designed to assemble in minutes, yet the durable all natural western red cedar can last for decades. Most standard size bed kits can be sent via UPS or Fed Ex ground service. This helps keep the shipping cost low. If you have a large or custom project please call 800 426 3929 for a delivered price quotation. No project is too small or too large.
Benefits of the Cedarbrook's Raised Bed Garden Boxes System:
1) All Natural Western Red Cedar is the Most Rot Resistant of All Woods
The cedar association reports that is lasts longer than, Inland Cedar, Eastern Cedar, Port Orford Cedar (commonly used for making pencils) and Yellow Cedar. Western Red Cedar is widely used for exterior applications like, shakes and shingles, fencing, decking and siding. Northwest Coast Aboriginal peoples choose Western Red Cedar as the wood of choice to carve intricate totem poles and dugout canoes. Indeed they want these labor intensive objects to last.
2) Western Red Cedar Rates the Highest on the Stability Chart
Cedarbrook's partially air dried Cedar has been seasoned to the optimum moisture level to accept wet moist garden soil. When wood is too dry (kiln dried) and wet soil is added , too much moisture transfers into the wood and can result in splitting, checking, cracking and warping.
3) More Affordable
Western Red Cedar from Cedarbrook is less expensive than other sources. This is a result of our cedar mills volume. As we sell and manufacture a host cedar products like sauna packages, decking, fencing, planters and cedar benches, the raised bed program is a recovery product. We consider this to be green product as well because we use the fall down and it is a long lasting and durable good that produces food very close to the source.
