Question Regarding - Cinder Block Raised Garden Bed
Previous I made a few raised beds out of pallet wood and then I used PVC pipes to make a lid frame with chicken coup wire that I attached using C clamps screwed into the wooden frame.
I notice the wood is begging to warp and crack... and I don't feel like screwing around with pallets again. So this time I would like to try making the raised beds out of cinder blocks. But I am having trouble deciding on how I would attach a PVC lid to the raised bed.
I am trying to keep the cost down as much as possible, and I know the blocks will cost me money, but I expect them to last for years to come.
Here is a picture of what I did before. All suggestions are welcome. Thanks!
You have several choices depending on the tools you own or can borrow.
Screws can be installed into block or concrete using plastic or lead anchors after drilling the correct size hole. Far faster is to use Tapcon screws which cut threads into the masonry after it i is drilled. The Tapcons are cheaper than the anchors and bit IMO.
Other options exist but these are the best two.
