anchoring PVC hoops with vinyl vox?

Post  happy232 on 6/25/2012, 12:02 am

so I finally set up my boxes Embarassed and put in vegi transplants.

I have a LIFETIME brand raised bed, which is made of a vinyl type.

QUESTION: how do I anchor the pvc hoops if I can't drill into the box? I have 1/2 inch schedule 40 pvc pipes. Would rebar work? If so, what size? And do I place the rebar on the inside or outside of the box??

Thanks much for your response =)

Rebar will work fine. Just make sure you aren't going to hit a utility! I think for maintenance ease I would put it INSIDE the bed. I forgot sometimes and had to put them on the outside. I hate hitting them with the weed trimmer!

fyi; the rebar worked! I bought 2 ft. rebar pieces and pounded it into the ground halfway. The pvc pipe slide right over it. just make sure you get rebar with perfectly rounded tops or you'll have a hard time sliding on the pipe!
