Harrod’s Superior Riased Bed Kits look good and are pretty adaptable. They are made of FSC Scandinavion timer planks which are 8 inches (20cm) high and 1.4 inches thick. This makes them pretty robust. As well as the planking they sell 4 inch (10cm) corner posts and also capping seperately. The planks come in various lengths from 2 ft to 8 ft as does the capping.
Harrod also sell what they call ‘Starter Kits’ which include all you need to make raised beds: the planks, corner posts, long lasting aluminium joining brackets and even zinc plated screws – with full instructions on how to assemble them. These kits come in various width and length sizes from 2 ft square and raising by 2 ft increments (seperately by width and length i.e. you could have 4 ft by 6 ft) to 8 ft square. There is also 4 height options. The capping is not included in the kit but can be bought seperately. On top of the rectangular kits, there is also a triangular kit available.
The wood has been high pressure treated with safe timberpreservative which was selected in consultation with ‘Garden Organic’ to ensure the best possible protection from attack from fungal attack and attack from wood boring insects. It has been planed to give you the best possible look.It is structually guaranteed for 8 years.
There are god reasons for putting capping on the top of your raised bed sides. Apart from loking really attractive, they are excellant for sitting on whilst hand weeding or planting in your beds.
These beds really are stylish and would make a god addition to any garden.
