Use landscaping timber to create a stylish raised bed that’s perfect for adding instant extra height when planting a smaller tree.
You will need: 50mm galvanised nails, 100mm galvanised nails, drill with 3mm drill bit, exterior construction glue, hammer, paintbrush, paint stirrer, pencil, Resene Waterborne Woodsman tinted to Resene Skywater, sandpaper, saw, set square, square fence capping (approx. 3.2m), tape measure, tongue and groove landscaping timber (approx. 6.4m).
Here's another idea: A raised bed such as this is a great way to add instant height to a small tree – consider other beauties such as Japanese maples, crab apples and Mop Top Robinias.
To finish off: Fill the raised bed with good quality topsoil or potting mix and plant up with a small tree – we chose a 'Vlassoff' fig.
