WOW that’s expensive for a couple of planks!!

You’d need two of these: Treated Sawn Timber - 22 X 150 X 3000 mm which would cost £16.80, plus a couple of bits of baton for a quid or two, and you’d have a bigger one for less money. And that’s with Wickes expensive timber prices, a local timber yard would do this much wood for much less. I know it’s a delivered package, but that’s not a cheap price.

EDIT: just checked NWTT who I get wood from:

150mm X 22mm Rough Sawn Softwood (1.8m) x 3

25mm X 22mm Rough Sawn Softwood (1.5m) x 1

TOTAL: £9.61

All pressure treated. And I bet it’s much thicker wood than you’d get from the mail order one.

I'm not one to blow my own trumpet, but as I was inspired by some of these posts and some of my friends creations, I thought I'd give it a go.

I managed to make this shabby chic pallet from an old coffee table that I had hanging around.

Agreed, however, some people might not have the tools/ability to cut to length, drill pilot holes for screws, measure and mark out accurately, etc. So worth it for some.

I'm with you though, buy some timber and make it yourself. Custom fit for your own garden, etc.

I even prefer recycling old solid timber, look after the environment.

Great find ordered 1. Thanks
1 is £37.90 with delivery. 2 is £55.90 with free delivery. Best to order 2.
Genuine question as it's not clear from the web page, is this 4 planks of wood and screws/ brackets or is there something xtra like weed membrane? Been toying with building some for a while

All raised beds are delivered flat packed with easy to follow step-by-step instructions and all the fixings you will need. Manufactured from smooth planed, pressure treated mixed softwood and supplied with a 15-year guarantee against rot and fungal decay. Supplied unpainted.
Agree with the others. This looks like a couple of gravel boards, some pretty thin batons and a few screws. Very easy to source and construct from any DIY shop, for less. Just locked in my local In-Excess shop, cost £11.50 for the wood and a few pence for screws. Yes you'd have to saw the wood but you have control over the size.

I understand that, but £33 for less than a tenners worth of wood is not a good deal in anyone’s book.
Is it worth £20 to make two wood cuts? I’d rather buy a saw for a fiver and have a go myself if I was after one. It’s still gotta be assembled remember, so it’s going to be for able bodied people anyway.

EDIT: £2.87 for a saw toolstation.com/hardpoint-saw/p75453

That’s actually a bargain saw, someone should post it

2nd EDIT: Any timber yard will cut them for free to the right size for you anyway.

Awful price on timber. Fair enough if you’re unable to make one yourself, but the amount these sell is beyond me!
Do not forget you will need @200 liters of compost.

I made mine from off cuts from local DIY store Maxwell's.
They cut any off cuts to the length you want free.
Made 2 including the trellis for around a tenner .They even cut the ply board to the correct size for the bottom and I just drilled some holes in.
Compost is peanuts you can get 3 x 50 or 60 ltr bags for a tenner as is the barbed wire for the cat which has taken a liking to it the one at the front of the house

I would use C16 instead.
daniq22/05/2020 20:32

I would use C16 instead.


Why, is your veg bed structural? There’s no need for any structural timer. If you prefer the look of something like C16, you could just use treated PAR without the cost of structural beams.

But I was merely comparing like-for-like timber prices for this “deal” obviously.

EDIT: £21.34 in C16, £12.98 in PAR
Edited by: "HorseBoxGuy" 22nd May
C16 is more stable and regularised, 47mm thick . It's structural because the trees grew slower making the timber more dense and longer lasting. Nicer looking too, no Knotts. Also it's more resistant to insect attack.

In my opinion, well the extra money if you want this to last.

Been meaning to put a few bits online but never got round to doing it, although have started this morning, as I've got some free time.

Measurements? What are those? I tend to make things up as I go along and work with the material size I have to hand!
