Changing out the veggie garden beds sometime this year, old wood is deteriorating.  What kind of wood did you use for these?

I did 10” cedar and 8” because I bought it at different times and the didn’t have anymore 10” 🤦‍♂️ They are holding up really well and I’ll be moving them this spring so I’ll let ya know how that goes. I added corner supports underneath

I think cedar is what my wife wanted to use.  Thanks 😀

Go with the cedar. Those homestead rescue shows always use cedar when there is ground contact with the wood. Grain istight and termites don't like it.

Agreed.  Cedar or Poly.  PT, 2 by is good if you treat it but Tom nailed it...

I’ve heard PT isn’t good for planting because the chemicals can leech into the soil and then in the plants? Not sure how true it is? There was another one I think that was good like cedar, I believe it was fir but that’s tough to come by if you aren’t buying hardwood flooring

Modern PT shouldn't leech anything too harmful, it's the older stuff (like pre-2003) that used an arsenic treating mixture that could leech bad things into the soil.

FWIW, cedar is a great option. I used regular pine 2x8 and am going into year three with mine with no issues. They will rot out quicker, I'm sure. But I have four 4'x20' beds and cedar was going to be cost prohibitive. I did coat each board with a vinegar/canola oil mixture, however. Also, all of the corners use stainless bolts/washers and Strong-Tie connectors instead of screws so I can easily swap boards if needed.

It's certainly possible.  Only reason I consider is the garden my mother raises every summer could supply a small army with everything from tomatoes to cucumbers, zucchini to eggplant and even romaine and herbs.

This is the current setup, picture taken a couple years ago.  The wood is falling apart now and wife wants to change them out before she plants her summer crop.

Will look for the cedar boards before we begin the build 😀

The wife needed something removed from the garage. “I don’t think I’ll be able to go in there if you don’t get rid of it” 

Grabbed him and took him outside

Okay finally approved for the cash out refi after a round about route that included not being told the loan I had been approved for was an FHA loan - no way my house is ready to pass that inspection.  But it did get appraised at a high enough value for the fun to begin - we close in a couple of weeks - our contractor is a church member who generally does high end new construction (think 2 million and up.)  We are making a bathroom and our kitchen handicap accessible for our daughter, replacing a window in our bedroom and flooring in the front part of the house - we've already redone our spare room (4th bedroom/den) as mostly DYI project to get the house ready for the appraisal.

 

We will also need to do the gutter repair (DYI) and pain the exterior (probably DYI.) in the next year.

 

Let the fun begin!
