Back yard raised beds

I've only got a concrete backyard and want to get raised vegetable boxes,any tips on building them cheaply?



Hi, sorry I don't really know anything about building anything but I do think you might be better looking around at buying some containers, they will need holes in the bottom for drainage if they are on concrete

We used old roof joists from demolition for ours, but you will need to allow for some drainage, concrete contributes to flooding, could you take some up to allow drainage?

you could use old pallets , but you will need to get the drainage sorted out.
