To keep things simple, we are currently offering three size options for raised garden beds. The prices quoted here are average; depending on exactly what you want for your bed or whether you wish to make any changes, the cost may fluctuate up or down a bit. Prices include all materials, labor, and filling the beds with a half-and-half mixture of compost and topsoil as a basic growing medium. Please Note: Pressure-treated pine wood may be substituted for a higher quality wood at any time, but the cost will be raised accordingly. The prices quoted are estimates, and may not be exact.
Option 1: 36″ x 60″ x 28″
This bed is made with pressure-treated pine boards, to be 3 feet wide, 5 feet long, and almost 2 1/2 feet tall, for those who do not wish to bend over very far and want an easy reach from both sides of the garden. The ground inside the garden walls may be covered with newspaper or cardboard, which will kill any grass and rot to feed the plants. Approximately $725.
Option 2: 4′ x 6′ x 1.5′
This is a typical, average-size raised bed, 4 feet wide, 6 feet long, and 1 1/2 feet tall, made from pressure-treated pine. This bed is sufficiently deep for carrots and beets, and will serve well for potatoes as well if you mound them slightly. Cost for this bed option is approximately $675, from start to finish.
Option 3: 3′ x 5′ x 1′
This is our simplest, most economically-priced option, made from pressure-treated pine with a quick, easy 1 foot depth. All corners are reinforced and the ground beneath the bed will require breaking up, rather than a simple paper covering. This bed size is sufficient for shallow-rooted crops such as lettuce, beans, peas, or squash. Approximately $450.
Custom Bed Sizing and Design is available, but the cost will be entirely dependent on size, materials, and the time it takes to build.
These are gorgeous! We can use stones you already have in your back yard, bricks, or stones/bricks we bring in. May be made as wide as 4 feet. Arrange the stones in a spiral pattern on a raised mound of soil, planting dry-loving herbs at the top, moving down to the more moisture-loving herbs at the base. Let gravity work for you! Looks beautiful when it fills in. Price depends on size and material.

FAQ Answered: When you sign your estimate for building beds, the cost of materials as well as 50% of labor charge must be paid up front, and the remainder of the bill will be given to you upon completion of the project.
