Raised beds for less than £10 per sq m
Creating beds of sufficient size for vegetable or fruit growing can be cost prohibitive, with kits in recycled plastic costing £50-£75 per sq m or more. This project was inspired by circular water and oil tanks which rely on tension in the outer skin to contain the liquid, rather than flexure of the sides. The material used is a recycled plastic used in agriculture called Stokbord, cut into strips and bolted together with stainless steel bolts. The completed construction is be highly durable and should last for many years.
