It would be difficult to reach the center of a 5'-wide box.  Mel recommends no more than 4' wide.

Hello,

Is it possible that the 4 boxes can be separated? As a whole the 5ft may be too large to work with but broken down it could work.


 thanks

It looks to have boards down middle, etc. Maybe you could balance on inner and outer boards to reach inside sqs.

My beds, 4 x 8, only cost about $15 dollars. But, they are wood and will have to be replaced.

Their is room for change as they appear to be configurable why i bought 2 to play with running a board down the center makes the most sense.


my other thought was to 2 frames then a walkway then 2 more frames etc..
of course i am assuming  Smile  Make a dado with my router in some hardwood to make a short corner.
here the pictures of whats inside the box not 8 inch board both sides

Been there, done that

I have a similar setup as that and another that uses hollow composite 2x6. The cost is prohibitive if you are going to do major gardens. My last 200 sq feet were plain old 2x6 and cost me less than the 48 sq feet of composites I bought. The Composites don't stand up to the weed whacker like a 2x6 does either.

They definitely look configurable.  Will be neat to see what you come up with!

Been trying to talk a neighbor into a front yard garden and a kit like this is the kind of idea I was pitching to her.  (Making it three different levels, deeper in the back and stepping down towards the street.)  Someone in my region posted a setup like that made from one of these composite kits and it was very attractive.

My mom has that bed; she subdivided each square into two smaller ones. One problem is that due to the composite material she couldn't drive anything into it to subdivide the squares. Its sixe was a little unwieldy but she has a year experince with it now and it works for her.
