My first raised garden beds I ever built (about 8 years ago) were 2.4 x 2.4 metre square sleeper beds which I was very proud of (and still am). However shortly after building these three beds side by side I realised I couldn't reach the centre from the side so this left me with a wasted growing space of about 500 cm square - what a dope I am! :oops:

I found this video on how to make a keyhole raised bed and I wish I saw it earlier because it would have been perfect for my situation! See the video at the end of this post under my image.

Below are my three large square beds you can see the wasted space in the centre.​

I would have over-engineered it (think carbon-fibre), then paint a spanner on it, and then steal some truckies unit sign (or mascot) and mount it in some conspicuous place.

(Sorry for the Army talk)
