Re: Building Raised Beds- How To Questions
Leslie- Thanks so much! You are a wealth of information. After reading this and doing some other research– the treated wood idea is out, even with a liner. So what to do now? Not sure. I did some research on the two local woods, couldn’t find any suppliers. I could try pine or some other framing lumber I guess, wish I knew how long we would be in the house, it might last , it might not. I guess time will tell.
My dad had the suggestion of painting the pine or other such lumber with an outdoor grade paint but I’m thinking that unless I get something environmentally friendly that there is still some possible chemical leaching problems there. Wish I had time to grow some willow but I don’t think it will be ready before my seedlings are!
