Have you seen raised garden beds made out of galvanized corrugated metal? I think they’re beautiful. A friend made several of them in her garden and the project perfectly combined beauty and function. The industrial look contrasts beautifully with the wooden trims and the green surroundings.

They're beautiful to look at and functional, too.

My husband knew how much I wanted to do some backyard gardening. However, my bad back prevents me from doing so. When he saw the corrugated metal raised bed, he knew it was the answer to my gardening woes. I was very pleased. Not only were they beautiful, I can finally do some safe gardening!

The corrugated metal sheets can be found in the roofing section of any home improvement store. Depending on what size your garden would be, you would have to carefully cut the corrugated metal. Be careful when you do because it’s pretty tough. Once you’re past that, you’re good. Just look out for sharp edges.
