    cost of fitting a sleeper raised bed in the garden


    I am interested in fitting a raised bed in my garden. How much will it cost in terms of the supply costs to put together a sleeper raised bed. What are the steps involved in completing this work by myself? I am guessing it is not an especially difficult job to do DIY, is that correct?

    "The job isn’t too difficult to do by yourself no, you would be looking at around £20-40 per raised bed depending on the size, first begin by building a large box with treated wood, and securing it with wooden posts secured in the ground with concrete. Then line the box with an kind of mesh lining and fill it up with topsoil and compost."

    "Hi Patrick, the cost of sleepers depends on what type or size
    Varies from £25 to £40, you will need supports either steel or wood, just use a square and a spirit level , you'll do fine,
    Best of luck Joe."

    "Sleepers are not difficult to do & there not that expensive. Really you’ll spend between £30/£40 on each sleeper. To lay them you’ll need to purchase 6 inch Nails a Spirit level & A straight line to keep it straight. It’s pretty straight forward if you purchase the correct things.

    Kind regards Andrew"
