Step-by-Step Guide to Building a Raised Garden Bed

Materials Needed:

  • EZBlocks wooden blocks
  • Landscape fabric (depending on location)
  • Gravel (optional, for drainage)
  • Garden soil

Tools Needed:

  • Shovel
  • Level
  • Tape measure

Step 1: Choose Your Location

Select a sunny spot in your garden that receives at least six hours of sunlight per day. Ensure the area is relatively flat and free from debris.

Step 2: Plan Your Design

Decide on the dimensions of your raised garden bed or planter. Standard sizes are 4×4 feet or 4×8 feet, but you can customize the size based on your needs. EZBlocks makes it easy to customize and build any size. Sketch your design on paper to visualize the layout.

Step 3: Prepare the Ground

Clear the chosen area of grass, weeds, and rocks. Use a shovel to level the ground as much as possible. If you’re building on a slope, you may need to dig into the soil to create a flat base.

Step 4: Lay the Base Layer

Place the first layer of EZBlocks wooden blocks directly on the ground, forming the perimeter of your garden bed. Use a level to ensure the blocks are even, adjusting the soil underneath as needed.

Step 5: Build Up the Walls

Continue stacking the EZBlocks wooden blocks to the desired height of your raised bed. A height of 12 to 24 inches is ideal for most garden plants. Ensure each layer is level and the blocks are securely interlocked.

Step 6: Add Landscape Fabric (depending on location)

If you are building a garden bed or planter on a concrete surface, line the bottom of the raised bed with landscape fabric. This will help retain soil while allowing water to drain.

Step 7: Optional Drainage Layer

For improved drainage, add a layer of gravel at the bottom of the bed. This step is particularly useful if your soil has poor drainage.

Step 8: Fill with Soil

Fill the raised bed with high-quality garden soil. Mix in compost or other organic matter to enrich the soil and provide essential nutrients for your plants.

Step 9: Plant Your Garden

Now that your raised garden bed is complete, it’s time to plant! Choose a variety of plants that suit your climate and growing conditions. Space your plants appropriately to ensure they have enough room to grow.
