Playground Border Timbers have become a popular option for building raised beds and have several benefits over other common materials. Here are some of the benefits of using our 12" border timbers for garden beds:
- They drain really well because the joints where the borders interlock aren’t water tight but still fit closely together. This allows water to flow through while containing the soil.
- They help keep the soil warmer which extends the growing season allowing you to get plants in earlier in the spring and keep them out later in the fall.
- They are very modular, making it easy to create beds in many different sizes and shapes.
- They are super easy to install. All you have to do is get the borders lined up and drive a spike through the hole that adjacent borders share. Installing the borders was the easiest part of the whole project.
- Filling up or removing soil from a bed is much easier because you can drive a wheelbarrow inside the bed if you need to. All you need to do is remove a spike and pull out a section to make an opening for the wheelbarrow. When you’re done just put the section back in place and reinstall the spike and you’re all set.
- They are easy to change down the road because you don’t have to cut or screw anything together. Want to extend out a 4′ x 8′ bed? Turn an existing bed into an L-shaped bed? Move a bed to a new area? All very easy to do with playground borders.
