Description

Planting into raised beds is a great way of growing different plants, fruits and vegetables in your garden.

Build your raised bed in minutes with this economical timber raised bed kit with good quality fertile topsoil included. The handy pre-assembled kit means there is no drilling, screwing or power tools required. Compact in size means all plants will be in easy arm’s reach. The vegetable and fruit topsoil is a mix designed for all you budding fruit and vegetable growers! Higher in organic matter than our standard screened topsoil.

 

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Decide the position of your raised bed. Make sure there is room to access both sides without needing to walk over the soil and tread on your plants.
  2. When a location is chosen, mark out the area, clear all vegetation and level out as required. Top Tip: dig the existing soil to a spade’s depth to break it up (unless you are building on a hard surface).
  3. Simply unload the handy sized topsoil (and compost) bags and place your raised bed on the marked area, push down the frame so the four feet are inserted into the ground.
  4. If you wish to leave the raise bed kit on the pallet, we recommend adding a perforated membrane on top of the pallet first, this will ensure any soil will not fall through the gaps once filled and sodden.
  5. Now to add the topsoil. Make sure to compact the soil with a spade as you fill up. Add the soil so it’s level with the top of the frame. The soil will eventually drop as it settles.

Top Tips:

Top Tip: dig the existing soil to a spade’s depth to break it up (unless you are building on a hard surface). Simply unload the x10 topsoil bags and place your raised bed on the marked area, push down the frame so the four feet are inserted into the ground. If you wish to leave the raise bed kit on the pallet, we recommend adding a perforated membrane on top of the pallet first, this will ensure any soil will not fall through the gaps once filled and sodden. Now to add the topsoil. Make sure to compact the soil with a spade as you fill up. Add the soil so it’s level with the top of the frame. The soil will eventually drop as it settles.

Top Tip: if your raised bed is greater than 50cm (20in) in depth, first remove the existing topsoil in the ground and replace with some rubble such as broken bricks and sand for good drainage.

Top Tip: after a year top up the soil to keep the depth and to give a nutrient boost for optimum growing. Happy planting!

FAQ's

When will my delivery be made?

You can select a delivery date that suits you on the checkout page of our website. Economy delivery is 2-3 days but we can deliver next working day for a small surcharge.

Is delivery free?

Delivery is free to many UK locations.  If there is a delivery charge to your address, it will be shown at check out.

Is it sterilised?

No unless you request it. Generally, we find that sterilisation kills off beneficial microorganism essential for soil health. If you do require sterilised soil, please see this product here.

Does the soil have stones in it?

Yes, but only small ones as all the larger stones are removed.  Some stones in the soil are important for good drainage, soil aeration and prevention of topsoil compaction.
