Octagon raised beds make attractive center pieces, tree planters and flower beds, as well as large and accessible vegetable gardens. They are available in regular (all sides equal) and elongated, or boat-shaped, varieties. Octagon planters arranged in rows create rounded-corner pathways, ideal for wheelbarrow and wheelchair access.
Like our hexagon planters, octagon raised beds are built with shorter length boards, which makes them more affordable than similar size rectangle beds. They are available with optional top rail, for a finished look, as well as planter bottom options, to provide soil drainage for gardens on rooftops, decks and patios.

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.
