I love my raised bed. You are awesome… I am so excited to get it planted.”– Karen, NE Portland
Verdura Culinary Gardens raised beds are attractive, versatile, and productive. Several designs are available in easy-to-download PDFs to guide you step-by-step in building your own professional-grade frames. Browse our original raised bed frame designs by clicking through the menu at the left to view options from basic 12” high frames to our stunning Mayan pyramid.
Following included materials lists, you'll build your frames with sturdy 2" thick dimensional select grade cedar or other lumber. Add weed-blocking landscape fabric if you like. The easy-to-follow plans guide you in installing your frames level right on top of existing soil, grass or hardscape anywhere on your property.
Instructions are included for optional sanding and routing, for a more finished appearance. We also suggest treating the wood with an eco-friendly wood waterproofer that increases the density and hardness of the wood from the inside out. A wide variety of optional nontoxic stain colors from the same company provide UV protection and a custom look. Frames are assembled with powder-coated deck screws for maximum strength and longevity.
Verdura’s raised bed frame plans include three popular sizes: 4’ x 4’, 4’ x 8’ and 4’ x 10’. If you wish to build your beds to different sizes, the plans are easy to modify to meet your specific needs.
