Raised bed garden kit to reduce bending and provide earlier cropping with this sustainably sourced, pressure treated 8ft x 4ft wooden raised bed kit.

  • Pressure treated timber
  • Stainless steel fixings
  • Accepts Access Cold Frames

Using a wooden raised bed garden kit in the garden gives a number of benefits. The crops are raised from the ground which improves drainage and also reduces bending when working on the raised bed. As the raised beds have to be filled with soil, they are ideal for gardens where the soil has a high clay content or the soil structure is poor. Bulk bags of good quality compost can be purchased to add into the bed, this can be supplemented with your own garden compost.

The 8ft x 4ft wooden raised bed kits are ideal for ‘grow your own’ vegetable gardens and general gardening. Each bed can be very productive and if a Cold Frame is added then crops can be started even earlier as the Cold Frame will help warm the soil.

Wooden boards are pre-cut, pre-drilled, sanded and pressure treated for a long life.

The 8ft x 4ft raised bed garden kit is British made from sustainably sourced timber which complies with RHS timber policies.

Actual planed board size 27mm x 116mm. Supplied in kit form and includes stainless steel fittings, instructions and delivery to mainland England, Wales and southern Scotland.

Actual external base dimensions 2.42m x 1.27m, to fit 8′ x 4′ Cold Frame. Available with up to 5 tiers high. 1 Tier (4.5″/11cm) 2 Tier (9″/23cm) 3 Tier (14″/35cm) 4 Tier (18″/46cm) 5 Tier (23″/58cm).

To calculate how much compost is needed in the raised bed multiple the length in m by the width in m x the height in m and then divide by 1,000 to give the amount of compost in litres. For example, 2.42m x 1.27m x 0.35m x 1000 = 1,075 litres. Bulk bags of up to 1,000 litres can be purchased.

Customer Reviews

  1. I’m really delighted with the 8’x4’ Access frame, which I have set up to house pots of bulbs plunged in sand in the raised bed. Results during the 2015 flowering season were excellent. I hope to buy another frame in the next year or so to replace an ageing home-made frame elsewhere in the garden, which houses alpines. Definitely 10 out of 10.

  2. “ I took over an allotment at the beginning of 2015 and as I started to work on it found that I needed a mini greenhouse which I purchased from Access Garden Products to go in my small garden at home so that I could grow from seeds. I was really pleased with this purchase so when I was looking around for a replacement for one of my raised beds on the allotment I thought I would go to Access again. I phoned up and they were very friendly and helpful. True to form the raised bed arrived, on time, well packaged and it is now safely installed in my allotment. I thank them for their excellent service.” Malcolm Eastwood

  3. Overall, pretty satisfied with the raised beds and cold frames. Some of the mitred boards were not perfect which is the only issue I noticed yet it was easy to build, adjust so for the price, it is still good value. The cold frames look good, easy to follow and well finished, good quality. Maybe you could mention about preservating treatment of the raised beds on the web site, I didn’t see it mentioned.
