About the 12’x8′ Just-Add-Lumber Vegetable Garden

Save money by buying your own lumber locally. Our “lumberless” garden kits enable you to build gardens nearly identical to our Complete Fenced Vegetable Garden Kits. We provide Raised Garden Bed Brackets, all necessary hardware, black netting for the trellis and fencing, and a complete set of detailed instructions and plans. Just like our Complete Fenced Garden Kits, our “lumberless” garden kits keep out rabbits and dogs. Of course, our instructions list the lumber boards you’ll need to purchase as well as the exact sizes the lumber boards will need to be cut to. If you don’t have a saw, ask the lumber company to cut the lumber pieces for you. This garden provides approximately 65 square feet of planting space and is recommended for families of 5-6 people.

Optional Automatic Watering System

An automatic soaker hose irrigation system takes even the simplest of duties out of your hands. We use a digital battery operated controller, manufactured by DIG Corporation, that is very easy to use. You can attach a garden hose to the inlet fitting, or connect it to your underground piping. When the controller turns on, water seeps out through the 75′ soaker hose (hose stakes included). You’ll never need to worry about watering your garden-it takes care of itself. We also include a coil hose and hose holder along with a vegetable sprayer. You can manually spray your plants if you choose to, or use the hose to wash your hands. The coil hose is conveniently mounted in the walkway of the fenced garden.

Lumber Required for the 12'x8' Vegetable Garden

Rough Construction Lumber (redwood or cedar suggested). Unless otherwise specified, the lumber listed below is the nominal size, which will likely be larger (thicker) than the actual size:
Quantity Size

31-5/8"x1-5/8"x12' (actual size)
7 decorative flat bottom post caps 3'x29' galvanized wire mesh for flooring (1/2" grid) to keep out gophers and moles.
