This page talks about raised garden bed designs.
Over the past few months we have been planning on where to take our business in the future.
One of the things we want to do is raise and sell our own seeds. Right now there is no one growing vegetable and some flower plants for seed production here in Texas except for watermelon and one other that escapes me this moment.
So we have been converting our garden beds for this purpose.
We are doing our fall crops right now and then we will start to focus on what to grow. Our thinking is if we can grow the seeds here, then they will, after a generation or two, produce plants that are more durable and more productive.
We think we would need to rent some land or some vacant parking lots to put our beds in. There are a lot of parking lots not be used here in San Antonio.
We would need to be able to move our beds, when necessary.
So we came up with a raised bed that can be moved by forklift.
Below are some pictures of these.
I started with a 3/4 sheet of pressure treated plywood 4 x 8. I then attached two sections of landscape timbers 2 x 4 feet. We then flipped this over and attached more landscape timbers for a total of 12 inch deep bed.
We can use a forklift too move the beds without disturbing the plants inside.

"Will definitely order from David's Garden Seeds in the future! The
seed-starting tray that I ordered was sent and received in a timely
manner, and, as expected, is very well-made. In addition, the seller
responds to messages very promptly and politely, which is a rarity in a
day and age when a person generally gets stuck on the phone with
elevator music for an eternity!"
