What are some materials that can be used for making raised beds? I know that it cannot be pressure treated. I would like to use boards rather than landscaping ties.

ACQ lumber has no arsenic and EPA says it can be used for vegetable gardens. We have no research that says it is a risk. The new plastic fake wood products such as Trex can be used. Untreated wood can be used and people commonly paint it to make it last longer. Brick or cinder blocks can also be used. We cannot say what THE BEST wood is. vw

Thank you, vw!
