Raised Beds for Vegetable Gardens

Optimized for Versatility, Production, and Value

Green City Growers’ raised beds are optimized for growing vegetables virtually anywhere with a contained, clean aesthetic. GCG beds are constructed from #1 grade kiln-dried spruce, pine or fir, and finished with Timber Pro UV, a non-toxic wood stabilizer to extend the life of the wood. Beds are filled with a custom blended organic mix designed for success. And beds are lined with WeedBlock (spun polyester fabric) and hardware cloth (like chicken wire) to protect the soil from intrusive roots and allow bed placement on any surface. Raised beds allow you to grow edibles in nontraditional spaces such as:

  • yards with contaminated soil (common in urban Greater Boston)
  • concrete
  • parking spaces
  • rooftops

Our standard bed setup includes an efficient drip irrigation system for thorough and consistent watering, eliminating one of the most common maintenance mistakes and ensuring success.

  • quarter-inch tubing connects to automatic timer
  • holes in tubes water at base of plant for maximum absorption
  • reduce nutrient leaching and water waste

Raised Bed Enhancements

Custom and Adaptive Raised Beds

Beds can be built in customized shapes and sizes, constructed of varying wood such as cedar, painted or stained to match other structures or surrounding decor, or made adaptive at a range of heights and depths to accommodate physical constraints. For example, double or triple raised beds make it possible to maintain the garden from a seated or standing position and eliminate bending, recommended for eldercare programs.

Adaptive Bed Pricing

Standard beds are 12″ tall, but can be built at heights 24″, 36″ and more. Upon request, beds can be built more narrowly at 24″ for increased accessibility (2′ x 8′).

4′ x 8′ x 24″: $1,300
4′ x 8′ x 36″: $1,700
4′ x 8′ x 48″: $2,100
