Alternatives and options for edging your raised beds.

I have been slowly building up my veg beds at the plot. Whether you have good drainage or not, they make it easy to control the growing conditions in each bed and to keep things organised. Reaching down to plant and tend is a lot easier on the back too with a slightly higher planting level. What you use to build your beds depends on how high you want to go and what is available in your area.

Try reclaimed skirting boards for an attractive outside!

If you can find them, or afford them, old reclaimed floorboards make a sturdy edging.

Scaffold boards, used, are popular but not cheap. They are pretty strong though.
