Non-Toxic Wood Raised Garden Beds

Downtown Los Angeles, CA
Solano Valley Community Garden wooden hillside raised garden beds.
(Please excuse the background freeway noise)


Two years ago after hearing ads on the radio, Al Renner, garden master of the Solano Community Garden, decided to build a prototype TimberSIL wood raised bed to test TimberSIL wood’s non-toxic resistance to weather, insects and wear. After two years the TimberSIL wood 4×4’s shows no signs of wear, rot or deterioration. A year later a larger second TimberSIL bed was built by inner city youth provided by Homeboy Industries and the LA Conservation Corps. While the construction of the second bed was not as sturdy as the first, the TimberSIL wood itself shows no signs of rot or deterioration.
