Raised garden beds come in a variety of shapes, sizes and materials. You can purchase a raised bed garden kit at a competitive price from companies such as Amazon, Natural Yards, Orcaboard, Home Depot and Meijer. Raised garden bed kits are made of wood, plastic, resin, and metal. Decide which style and colour of bed will be right for your garden. Keep in mind the cost of shipping when comparing prices.

Frame It All Raised Bed

Amazon and Home Depot both sell "Frame It All" raised bed kits at competitive prices. Amazon provides free shipping on all orders over £16. As of July 2010, the best buy is a "Frame It All" 4-foot by 8-foot by 6-inch bed sold on Amazon for £71.6 with free shipping. The bed contains 32 square feet of garden space at 6 inches deep. "Frame It All" beds are made of a mixture of 60 per cent recycled plastic and 40 per cent wood flour. The composite timbers do not rot like untreated wood but still develop a natural weathered look over time.

Cedar Beds from Raised Garden Beds

Raised Garden Beds offers a huge selection of elegant cedar raised bed kits manufactured by IP Woody's Creative Woodworks, with prices ranging from £318 for 40 square feet of garden space to £1,982 for 340 square feet. The two best buys available as of July 2010 are the Devonshire Delight set, which covers 90 square feet for £394 plus shipping, and the Sussex, which covers 60 square feet. Both bed sets come in a 5-1/2-inch height. You can order the same kits with higher edges for higher prices. Shipping for each set costs from £61 to £74 when ordered directly from Raised Garden Beds.

Burpee Gardening Raised Bed Corners

Burpee sells patented corner joints you can use with your own composite or wood timber to construct a raised bed garden in the size, shape and material of your choice. The stackable corner pieces are 6 inches tall and can be used with any standard 2-inch by 6-inch pieces of lumber. Purchase corner pieces in packs of two for £9.0 from the Burpee website for the most inexpensive and customisable option available. The corner pieces rotate a full 360 degrees to accommodate any shape of bed. Burpee also offers complete kits that include brown composite timbers made of recycled plastic at a rate of £19.0 for two 4-foot-long pieces. Prices are current as of July 2010.
