Are you thinking about adding a new bed to your garden this year? Buying the materials for a raised bed can get expensive, but you can keep the budget in check by purchasing inexpensive materials, or reusing items you already have – and concrete blocks are the perfect choice.
Concrete blocks are also easy to work with, and can be installed right over grass or weeds, making this a quick DIY project that can be completed in an afternoon. Plus, as a fun bonus, the holes in the concrete blocks make wonderful planters for flowers and herbs to border the garden. Find the full step-by-step instructions for building the beds here.
