Pavers to "frame" beds?

Post  etimmer on 3/19/2010, 9:58 am

I was just wondering if anyone has used retaining wall/landscape pavers
for their raised beds? If so I would love to see some pictures if so! I
have been thinking strongly about it since they last a lot longer than
the wood and it would be easier to turn them into "flower beds" if/when
we sell our house. I haven't seen any negatives on it like I have with the various types of wood and chemicals... Any thoughts?

If you spend any time on YouTube watching videos about SFG (and there are a lot of them) you'll see raised beds made out of practically EVERYTHING. Brick, cinderblock, flagstone, pavers, tree trunks, etc. There are no hard and fast rules. A lot of people use wood because it's fast and cheap and you can take the beds with you if/when you move. If you have access to inexpensive pavers, go for it!
Happy Gardening

We think concrete products are timeless and classical, and consider them first when there's a project to be done. Often, they are the most expensive option. Like Tim said, they'll work just fine if that's the look you desire.
