Best raised beds ever

Our best raised beds were easy to construct, are easy to garden in, and are weed free. The plants grew really well and vegies were ready early, with good size and taste. The bases have wooden slat frames with overlapping joints, and were a bit over 2m×1m in size. Each bed was quick to put together and we customised them to add extra protection from the weather.
The corners were held together with metal bolts – which we extended to be 3× height of the bed and covered them with black irrigation pipe hooped over to the opposite side.
This frame supported bird-net mostly, and a plastic cover underneath the net in winter. The net was looped onto screw heads around the outside of the bed to firmly hold the plastic in place even in strong winds.
