Hi Coralrocks,

No, they are not cedar, just the cheapest wood I could find at Home Depot (yellow pine I think?) I think cedar would be much better, but it was a lot more expensive. However, after removing the old beds I built last year and seeing how rotted they were after just one year, I will probably use cedar next time.

I would like to use something more permanent like bricks or stone, but unfortunately I have a 10 foot easement along the back fence and I am not supposed to build anything permanent there. Although, I suppose a raised bed built out of stacking rock or brick could be moved too... one piece at a time lol! Since along the back fence is the only place in my tiny backyard that gets adequate sunlight, I had to put my garden there.

If you have some old cedar boards I would definitely use them! I am interested in the composite wood your son used for his project. Do you remember where he got it? Maybe it would be cheaper than cedar.
