Raised Vegetable Garden Beds

Asked April 24, 2018, 7:43 AM EDT

I have a question regarding the best wood to use for raised garden beds that I want to use for vegetables. I've heard some negatives about pressure treated wood and that is what the landscaper recommended. If the wood is lined with plastic, is it safe?

Yes, lining the wood with a plastic liner is possible and safe.
