Our New Castelton raised bed design makes a very attractive flower or vegetable bed, with a generous 18cm wide lap jointed finishing rail and supporting posts. The bed is available in 54cm and 72cm heights in 1.2m x 1.2m and 1.2m x 1.8m sizes. The kit includes all parts and fixings to assemble this very handsome timber raised bed.
The structure is very strong, with a 10cm square post at each corner and a further 10cm post in the centre of the 1.8m side which both ties the side boards together and supports the finishing rail around the top of the pond. The wide finishing rail also serves as a seat, it is finished at the corners with a half lapped joint rather than a mitre to give a very firm fixing and to minimise movement in hot weather. The half lapped construction also means that the finishing rail can be assembled before being attached to the pond which makes fitting over the liner much easier than a mitred joint.
