Building raised beds can be simple if your are on flat land. What happens if you have a slope where you need to put the beds? Here is the solution. There are some challenges but with some time and ingenuity you can build some great raised beds.
This how-to video shows how you deal with the challenges of building on a slope. This project was completely free as the lumber and screws were reclaimed from other projects. Slopes can be a great advantage in gardening. If your slope is south facing that can make growing conditions similar to one gardening zone to the south!
I will be using these raised beds for the Home Garden field trial testing the effectiveness of Rock Dust and Biochar on vegetables.
Some of my favorite childhood memories are of gardening with my parents and brothers. This channel is about low cost organic urban gardening in zone 3. I am by no means an expert gardener however I love to share my experiments and journey garden year round.

I know you can find solutions to this problem in the Stodoys plans.
Thanks Steven, excellent carpentry and farming skills 🙂 keep up the good work
I found great plans on the Woodprix website. I think this is a good solution for everyone.
thanks! This will be added to my hillside in spring of 2021.
Hiya. Great build. Where is the next video showing the trials with the finished boxes? (Please forgive I did look myself before asking) I feel like you mentioned a piece running along the bottom of the sides on the slope? Perhaps a piece of 1x?
Learn how to make it yourself with all details. Just look for woodprix 🙂
Sir that's a rectangle. Haha 🙂 p.s. I knew ya meant by square.
I've got a steeper and bigger yard than this. Any suggestions on steeper yards?
I can't even watch this after having been accosted by a BS ad to try and pin something on Biden. Disgusting.
dumb as shit!. This is all cosmetics. the ground is still sloped thus water will still drain fastly and thus roots will still grow towards gravity. Not sustainable. You need terraced farm.
i made it too. just used woodprix instructions. just click the pig on that website :)))
Still don’t believe I could build it, sadly…
Those are going to rot away in no time flat. =/
Why are you apologizing to Canadians for using imperial units? The rest of the developed world nations are using metric system! Thanks for great ideas in the video BTW.
I'm sure you made these for Canadians 🙂 here in Europe we don't normally use feet and inches.
And by the way – Canada is metric since 1996. 🙂
Most descriptive video I have ever seen, Thank YOu
I liked watxhing your video but was hoping fir more detail as you digging the trench area that you needed to fit the wood in. I need to fix our garden area because its slanted and need to level it.
A complete and comprehensive package [ Check Details Here=> deam.design/9trw ], I am so thrilled with what I've got in the package. I could use this for a very long time to come. This is the most complete manual I've ever seen Thank you Ryan.
that is what you are calling a slope?
You should go to woodprix if you'd like to make it yourself guys.
Blah blah blah…
woodprix is full of awesome tips. Very helpful to me. Thanks
plans from woodprix are awesome!
All of my woodworks I am making with woodprix. Google and try it.
glad to see someone else is doing this to utilize their hillside. I have mostly flat ground for farming but one hill in the BEST exposure zone. I thought of the Peruvians when I built mine but like yours, mine are cantilevered
Great video, thank you I found it really helpful !
You should visit woodprix website if you would like to make it by yourself I think.
Woodprix is nice for that.
Poof magically square leveled boxes on an uneven slope. Magic? No video editing.
I Had to stop and comment… because I sketched almost exactly the same raised beds last weekend planning to lay them tomorrow, but with 3 2x4s in place of the 2 2x6s per box. Googled "raised beds on a hillside" looking for more ideas and your video came up as the first result, confirming my plans, and giving me a good idea of what it will look like. In my case, I'm taking advantage of the existing hill to rotate crops down the boxes each year, without having to worry too much about plants shading each other. Thanks for posting!
You are cracking me up! My Mom is from Blackie, so I love hearing you talk. Makes me think of my cousins!
I love your idea. I will try to make a raised garden on a slope
Thanks it's very helpful for me and my garden
You can use woodprix instructions to build it yourself guys.
The best I have come across as of now. I will relent this to anyone and all to my friends looking for a collection of designs. I don’t see anyone passing all this without consulting the best program for their problem. I am so much delighted to work with them and making use of their designs without any further problem again [Details Here==https://www.facebook.com/Land-scaping-1486105054770531/app/208195102528120/ ].
Hi thanks for your video! I enjoy that you use reused wood for your raised beds. My nephews and I are beginners and have bought cheap white construction wood for our first beds since we are on a low budget however some have what we think is black mold! And we are not sure if they are safe to use can you please advice us Thanks and best regards from Bolivia!
Thanks to this fantastic program. Since I packed in newly, I have been trying to keep it cool with the landscaping of the house and make myself feel at home. But instead, it tried paying me back with regrets and hatred for it when it keeps looking ugly. But thanks to this great program [Details Here==https://plus.google.com/u/1/110086446704524205338/posts/HrzGjo6aFKc ] I must say.
