Hexagon raised beds offer eye-catching shapes for growing flowers, herbs and vegetables in container gardens. They are available in regular (all sides equal) and elongated, or boat-shaped, varieties. Hexagon planters can be used alone or arranged together in honeycomb-like patterns, to create attractive and accessible garden designs.
Because they make use of shorter length boards, hexagon and octagon raised beds are more affordably priced than similar size rectangle beds. The rounded-end side boards pivot on the corner pins, and can be adjusted to form wider or narrower raised beds.
Raised garden beds are made from long-lasting cedar protected with a non-toxic waterproof sealant that is safe for growing vegetables. Raised bed planters come in every shape and size, including custom-size beds. Give us a call for more infomation, and let us know if you need help planning a garden.

Raised garden beds can be set up directly on lawn, sand or gravel and dirt. For gardens on rooftops, decks and patios, optional planter bottoms are recommended to improve soil drainage and help protect the surface below. If the ground below is toxic, planter bottoms lined with barrier cloth will help keep plant roots safe from exposure.
Build raised beds in a flat and open area, if possible, for easy access and sun exposure. Pathways around raised beds should be 18 to 24 inches wide for normal foot traffic and 36 to 48 inches for wheelbarrow and wheelchair access.
