Question by  Darkrocker (25)

What type of wood is used to make raised gardens?

I am attempting to make my garden stand out more and would like to build it up.

Cedar would be an excellent choice for this project. It is already available in many ready-made options in the garden department. It is resistant to moisture and acts as a repellant to some insects. As a bonus,it has an attractive color and woodgrain. With minimal care it should last for many years.

Rot resistant cedar is the most popular. You can also use composite timbers, black locust, redwood, plastic, recycled plastic and vinyl. These listed choices are considered to be safe. There is growing concern about treated lumber bleeding arsenic into the soil and possibly rubbing off on a persons hands so you might want to avoid that type of wood.

You can use pressure treated two by fours or bigger if you want, or you can use cement pavers to build up the garden.

I request you to use cedar. I think it will work for you definetly. You can also use lumber. It will not fade or rot quickly as other woods. I accept that it is expensive but keep in mind that you need not to replace or re-built it. So it will save your money.
