In this Instructable you are going to learn how to make a vegetable patch in a weekend. The pictures below are the results of a weekend project done a while back. So drive down to the DIY store and get cracking. Your going to to need:

  • Saw
  • Hammer
  • Angle grinder(optional)
  • Screws
  • Drill with drill bits
  • A wood Plane
  • Sand paper
  • A screw driver
  • A hoe
  • A Spade
  • A Garden fork
  • cement fork

  • Good dig-able ground
  • Slates/tiles
  • Timber(2" x 4")
  • Compost
  • Seeds
  • cement

Step 1: Plans

These are the plans used for this specific patch, its square and simple with a cross path(+) allowing easy access to the beds. Please feel free to alter your patch layout accordingly with the ground being used. Each corner contains a square strut and a simple end-to-end joint. This was done as the frames will not be moving around too much. Make sure the screws you have purchased give a deep enough thread to join the pieces of wood.

The layout of tiles was made using an angle grinder that was rented from Roses, the garden shop and iron masons. this does not have to be done but can look better.
What a fantastic looking garden :D
