    If you watch the beginning without sound the guy looks incredibly angry with you … I’m scared

    Thank you for this video. I am starting off growing my own vegetables and herbs, following this video just built my own raised bed. I didn’t have to use any preservative on the pegs as the timber was pre-treated. It takes a tonne of compost, I had to use so many bags to nearly fill it.

    As a lover of woodwork there is nothing more satisfying to me than seeing a close up of a screw being perfectly drilled into wood!😁😁😁

    Thanks for the vid. We just made a couple in just 2 hours and they look great!

    Many thanks for the tips. Will try this. Hope this method of turf removing works on heavily compacted clay soil too.

    Thank you for this amazing video tips on preparing my bed and soil for planting.

  19. Ben S on November 10, 2022 at 9:53 pm

    Will this wood rot over time or do you need to treat it?

  20. Blessed From Texas on November 10, 2022 at 9:58 pm

    I have a slope. How do I do this on a slope?

  21. jerrycrow66 on November 10, 2022 at 10:00 pm

    If you line it with cardboard you don’t need to remove the turf. Anything below the cardboard will eventually mulch down.

  22. Craig Donald on November 10, 2022 at 10:01 pm

    You don’t need to remove turf, see Charles Dowding no dig garden

  23. Mark Leigh on November 10, 2022 at 10:01 pm

    How safe is it to use treated wood for growing veg? Wouldn’t there be issues with it leaching?

  24. Aled Evans on November 10, 2022 at 10:02 pm

    What dimensions are those boards? 6" x 1" maybe?
