Spring is around the corner and we've been posting more and more outdoor spaces and questions from readers ready to make their small outdoor spaces enjoyable in the milder months ahead. Design practice Scout Regalia has created a DIY kit for a raised garden bed and implemented sustainable practices every step of the way...
The Raised Garden Bed Kit was designed to "simplify the process of assembling a raised bed garden, making food production feasible for green thumbs and the garden challenged alike. The Kit allows for gardens of variable sizes and lengths, making it ideal for urban settings with soil and space constraints"
Scout Regalia uses local (California) fabricators and the kit hardware was designed for efficiency and minimal waste production.
Raised Garden Bed Kit includes:
• 4 corner brackets
• 3 middle brackets
• 40 stainless steel screws
• 8 (SR) Garden ID tags
• Grease pencil
• Instruction Guide
The kit does not include lumber — the designers urge the DIYers to source local lumber or re-use materials already on hand. This also allows the user to make beds of varying sizes. Though the $120 price tag is a little far out, we respect the designers' intentions and would hope that increased production could bring the price down ($40 seems reasonable).
