Merbau garden bed

Finally got to put together the Garden bed using some timber sleepers and some merbau. Very happy with the end product.

Re: Maerbau Garden Bed

Hi @Rufaro01,

 

Many thanks for sharing your project with the community. It looks fantastic and I'm sure will be perfect for growing plants in. What were you going to plant out in it and any idea of the rough cost of the project?

Re: Maerbau Garden Bed

Thanks @MitchellMc 

I'm planning on planting some weather friendly herbs in this one. I used to use small pots so it'll be nice to have this for a change. 

 

It cost approx $200 altogether. Mains parts are below. Ended up weighing q fair bit too.

 

4 - 3m sleepers (cut to 4 @1800mm and 4 @400mm)

7 - 1800mm (70x19mm)

5 - 1200mm (70x19mm)

 

Cheers

Hi and welcome @dishu 

I went with the Sienna H4 Micropro Pine sleepers.

 

I informed not to use the treated pine sleepers and I'm planning on planting edible herbs.
