4 X 4 Raised Garden Bed With Benches

This is a really nice looking garden bed and I can picture a few of these set up in any back yard. What I really like about raised gardens is that if you keep them mulched you have far fewer weeds to deal with and since the soil is never walked on it doesn’t get compacted like a regular garden can.

This would be really inexpensive if you happen to have some old cedar around that you could repurpose.
