How easy is it to assemble a garden bed?

Usually, a regular-shaped raised bed only takes 15–30 minutes to assemble,while for some special shapes, it will take 40–50 minutes, such as L-shaped or U-shaped raised beds. After finishing, you don't need to disassemble it frequently for cleaning. It’s OK to clean it several years later after using it or when you need to replace the liner. Without rusting or moulding problems, you can easily rinse the raised bed with water, and then you can get a new-looking garden bed. Does it sound easy?

remove the plastic film of the metal raised bed

Let's take the 9-in-1 metal raised bed as an example. It only takes 30 minutes to finish assembling.

  • Step 1. Remove the protective film on each panel. The role of the protective film is to protect the steel and coating from scratching during the production and transportation process.
  • Step 2. Assemble the raised bed in accordance with the instructions. Overlapping two panels and screwing the fasteners, the bed would be stable.
  • Step 3. Install the rubber edge on the metal raised garden bed. Provide double protection so the elderly and children can play with confidence.
  • Step 4. Install the bracing rods. For regular-shaped raised beds, only 6-in-1 and 9-in-1 of 17-inch and 32-inch are equipped with bracing rods. The bracing rods' role is to stabilise the metal raised bed, preventing excessive pressure that would cause panel bending. Of course, filling the raised bed with some other organic material and not just filling it with soil can avoid this situation. For more details, please see: What to Fill a Raised Garden Bed with
  • Step 5. Put in the filler and you are ready to start planting! Isn't it amazing how easily it is to assemble a metal raised garden bed?

How quickly is it to wash and re-assemble a metal bed?

Vegega's metal raised garden bed is bottomless, so when filling it, you can place different organic liners to prevent insects and weeds. Generally, organic matter like cardboard boxes and fabrics will slowly decompose over time, and it may take a few months to years. So you will be required to replace the liners after a while.

It takes about half an hour to assemble the garden bed, and only about 10 minutes to disassemble it. Furthermore, the metal raised bed is coated with the zinc-aluminum-magnesium alloy, which ensures the inside of the garden bed will not rust. Therefore, by simply rinsing the panels and fasteners after disassembling can you get a clean raised bed!  

Maintaining the metal raised bed

After using it for a long time, what should we do to maintain the metal raised beds? To ease the preparation for next year's work, we can maintain the raised garden beds before the frost. For maintenance, it does not mean disassembling the metal garden bed or removing the padding inside the garden bed. Rather, we can maintain the filler in the garden bed so that we can easily start a new planting plan the following spring!  

We can clean up weeds and dead plants, fill the bed with fresh soil, and put in new organic matter such as wood branches. And you can consider burying the compost in the raised bed for better decomposition. The soil would be richer in nutrients for root growth in spring planting. Don't forget to put down a layer of mulch to cover the soil from frost. With all the preparation done, all you need to do before spring planting is turn the soil over a little, and you can start to plant!
