Best Raised Garden Beds on Etsy

As I was searching through Etsy, I found some interesting raised garden beds and kits.  I’ve compiled a list below in multiple different price categories.

These cedar raised garden beds are a great way to make your garden look great – and support small business at the same time!  Cedar has a nice aroma, and it is rot-resistant due to natural oils in the wood that protect it.

Note: depending on your budget, you should also consider the amount of space you need in a raised garden bed.

For some of these items, taller or wider versions are available for a higher price.  You can make this selection on the item description page on Etsy.

Best Raised Garden Bed on Etsy Under $50 (006 Cedar Garden Planter with Sections by SJRusticConceptions)

This cedar garden planter from SJRusticConceptions may be small, but it is the perfect size for growing herbs, flowers, or small vegetables.

The measurements are 20 inches long by 7 inches wide and 5.5 inches deep.  The compact size means this planter could be used in multiple spots in your home or garden.

If you don’t have much space outdoors, you could put one of these planters on a windowsill.

Since the planter is divided into three sections, you can keep your herbs, flowers, and vegetables separate if you like.  You can also rotate and plan your planting dates so that something is always maturing (for example, radishes, lettuce, spinach, etc.)

The depth of 5.5 inches limits what you can grow for vegetables.  For example, lettuce and spinach will do fine, but carrots would be stopped in their tracks when they grow into the bottom of the planter.

Specifications

  • Material: Cedar
  • Dimensions: 20x7x5.5 (inches)
  • Uses: windowsill for herbs, flowers, or small vegetables

Pros:

  • Free shipping (ready to ship in 3 to 5 business days)
  • Seller is responsive (usually responds within a few hours)
  • There are 3 different sections in this planter.  This is useful if you want to keep plants separate to prevent them from crowding each other.

Cons:

  • Small size limits what you can plant.  You won’t be able to fit many vegetables or get a huge yield.  The depth of 5.5 inches is not enough for deep-rooted crops like carrots.
