Tell us about yourself!
There are several clear benefits to the wood frames, the two most obvious being that one can control the soil in at least that top layer, and that one can mulch without the mulch spreading around. People with poor soil and those without the means or motivation to till and amend an entire garden space can benefit especially from mini-raised beds.
Would you care to expand on your notion of "properly treated" cedar? It has not been my experience that today's cedar - more likely to be younger trees and boards therefore from the edge, rather than the more stable center of the tree - holds up all that well to ground contact.In my experience today's pressure treated lasts much better than cedar and is being made with far less nasty chemicals. Some folks may still be concerned. But what is it you treat your cedar with? Treatments can contain unwanted chemistry, too. (Or do you mean 'treated' as in well taken care of?)
Nice project!One thing to note - if you have a truck, even a small one, you can take whole panels home with you. They are really flexible and can be bent in a big arch and fit into the truck bed like a galvanized rainbow. The guys and gals in the yard at the store should be able to help with this. Bring a few tie downs and you're ready to go.I make similar cages, but don't make a full cage out of the cattle panels, just one half / one 90 degree corner, and drive a couple small fence posts in to support them. I like this because it's plenty sturdy, there are plenty of places to tie the tomatoes up, and it's open so it's easy for the plants to spread out and for me to get in and prune and harvest.Thanks for your instructable!
