Everyone seems to want to grow their own food these days, and raised garden beds are by far one of the easiest ways to do it. Recently I found this cinder block raised garden bed video tutorial by Vermi Bag Composting & Gardening Systems on YouTube, and it looked really simple and perfect for my needs.  A really cool advantage of this cinder block garden bed is the fact that you can plant small plants, such as herbs, in the cinder block openings, as well as using the middle area. Also using a soaker hose is a great idea, that will keep those cinder blocks moist and that will water your cinder block garden like a professional irrigation system. All-and-all, this cinder block raised bed system is really a great idea for a multitude of reasons.

Materials For The Cinder Block Raised Beds:

 

  • Cinder blocks (as many as you need for your space, you will need to measure it to decide)
  • A few bags of potting soil (go ahead and get organic it is only a little more at Home Depot)
  • A soaker hose (to put around the cinder blocks)
  • Some plastic (for the bottom of the bed)
  • A shovel
  • Soil nutrients

Directions:

In this cinder block raised garden bed video tutorial by Vermi Bag Composting & Gardening Systems on YouTube, you will learn step-by-step how to make the budget-friendly useful garden beds. You begin by, digging out your garden bed area and stacking your cinder blocks in a rectangle. Then you lay out the plastic at the bottom of the bed and fill with organic topsoil.

Then. you will install a soaker hose just inside the circumference of the cinder block bed and it will act as an irrigation system.
