Many thanks for sharing @bruceprince. That looks like a fantastic garden. What have you got growing?
Let me also extend a very warm welcome to Workshop. It's great to have you as a member of the community. I'm looking forward to reading about your projects and plans. Please let me know if you ever need a hand getting the most from the site.
We've got lots of keen vegie growers in the community already. You might like to add to this discussion that @timjeffries kicked off recently - https://www.workshop.com.au/t5/Gardening/Autumn-vegetable-updates-please/m-p/3238
Thanks again for joining us.
Great raised beds, look very solid, just what I need, mine were built from whatever we could find at the time, many years ago & now in need of replacing, there are 6 but too close together so is hard to get wheel barrow around them, so have a bit of a job ahead. Thanks for the inspiration!
Approximately how much do the materials used in this demonstration cost in total from Bunninga?
Welcome to Workshop. It's great to have you join us.
I will tag @bruceprince for you so he sees your question and hopefully he can share some indication of the cost of materials for his fantastic raised garden beds. But please note that Workshop is a home improvement community of people just like yourself. If you would like some assistance from Bunnings regarding the cost of materials, we would recommend you contact your nearest store.
I hope Workshop members provide you great advice and inspiration for your projects. Please post whenever you need a hand or have a project to share with the community. Also feel free to get in touch with me if you ever need help getting the most from the site.
I am very impressed with the raised garden beds. These would be perfect for our place. The timber used look like the treated pine sleepers I purchased from Bunnings to build a retaining wall. Is that what they are? What are these sleepers treated with and is it safe to use them to grow vegetables?
Many thanks for joining in the discussion. Do you remember what sleepers you purchased? You are correct that you do need to ensure they are suitable for use in a vegetable garden. The product description on the Bunnings website should give you the information you need, for example - https://www.bunnings.com.au/ironwood-200-x-50mm-2-4m-sienna-treated-pine-sleeper_p8423133
There's also D.I.Y. Advice videos and step-by-step instructions on the Bunnings website that you might find helpful, such as How to build a garden bed and How to build a raised garden bed with sleepers.
If you need a hand with anything, I would encourage you to hit the Start a discussion button. We have lots of community members who are happy to share their experience and knowledge.
Let me also extend a very warm welcome to the Workshop community.
