It’s the time of year to start thinking about your garden. Like many people, I always struggle with creating a bountiful garden that isn’t gobbled up by little critters. However, this year I’m going to try out a raised garden bed that I can put on our deck in hopes it may do a little better.
Unfortunately, some kits can be a little labor intensive to put together. Here are seven kits that take most of the work out of the process. They range in price, but you can find quality kits starting as low as $60.
1. Cedar Wedge Garden Bed
This little wedge is the perfect garden bed to put on your deck. Made out of cedar, this wedge design allows for roots to go deep into the soil without taking up too much space. Best of all, it doesn’t require the use of any tools for installation.
2. Rustic Elevated Garden Bed
If you’re looking for something that’s raised up a bit so it’s easier to work with, then this elevated bed is perfect. This is one of the most popular models at Home Depot and has a 4.6/5 rating.
3. Garden Bed With Critter Guard Fence
If critters are a problem for you, this kit provides an extra barrier between your delicious fruits and veggies and those pesky animals.
4. Plastic Garden Beds
These plastic beds are weather resistant and durable for an affordable price. You can also get a two-pack if you want to separate your fruits and vegetables. The two-pack even comes with a nice little protective tent.
