Question, when u put the metal bars to hold all the wood, I understand that they r there to hold the other wood that goes on top but the initial is it holding to the ground or to the first wood?

The metal bars go into the ground enough to keep the box from moving. The metal rebar can be purchashed different lengths at Home Depot. Also a bracket of metal or something needs to be put on top corners to hold sides together. Hope that answers your question. -Peace- Paz, Mo

Beefy!! That ain’t going anywhere. What’s that wood called? Not the type, but the cut.

It is called treated landscape timber. -Peace, Mo

You didn’t stagger your posts? Would be a hell of a lot stronger and look better. I can’t believe after all the beds you’ve made you didn’t do the first rule of thumb. Tsk tsk.

Hi Dominic:
What/whose 1st rule of thumb? My husband is an engineer. When he puts something together, it doesn’t come apart easily. They are holding together quite well. But, thanks for your concern. -Peace, Mo

Nice, I am thinking of doing a raised water garden using this method. How far does the rebar go into the ground?

Depends on what’s beneath it. Be careful of underground cables, sprinkler system pipes, gas lines, electric cables, etc. Ours are 6″-9″. We have a map of all the lines running through our yard. As things were put in, my husband kept a record (blueprint). -Peace, Mo

Thanks for the concern. We live in Houston. All is well. Hurricane season starts this week. Time to thin the trees so wind can blow through without knocking them over. -Peace, Mo
