Silt Fencing Raised Bed


If you are thinking of adding raised beds to your yard this year but have a limited budget then a silt fencing raised bed might just be what you are looking for. In the video above Blake Kirby shows how he was able to build an inexpensive raised bed for his potato patch using recycled items.

If you aren’t lucky enough to find the required resources laying around your home you can still build one for not a lot of money. A 2×100 foot roll of fencing material costs $21.95 at Home Depot which is enough to build five 4×6 foot raised beds.
