FAQ > General Information > What Type of Wood Should I Use to Build Raised Garden Beds?

Search the FAQ for entries containing:

Western Red Cedar is a popular choice because it’s not pressure treated and extremely durable. You can expect to get five or more years out of a Western Red Cedar garden bed before it even begins to show signs of decay.  Redwood is an even longer lasting, but more expensive option, while Yellow Pine is a low priced option, but with a much shorter life span. With the constant, wet ground contact of an organic garden, Yellow Pine can rot in as little as two years. Pressure treated lumber, while safer than in years past, is not a good choice for an edible garden bed.
