Have you recently started a backyard garden? We are excited to grow our own backyard veggies this year. Our garden layout is coming together slowly, but I’m excited at how easy the Vego Garden Raised Bed was to assemble and add to our garden. Thank you to Vego Garden for providing a raised bed for this post. All opinions are my own.

My husband, kids, and I decided to jump into the world of backyard gardening this year. I have two kids specifically who enjoy planting and watching things grow, and my husband and I wanted to nurture this interest. Plus, we’d also get to enjoy the fruits (or veggies?) of our labor, so it is a win-win! I had a very specific garden layout in mind, and part of that layout included a few raised garden beds. After lots of research, I knew that the Vego Garden Rasied Garden Bed was the bed that I wanted to implement in our front garden area. Their garden beds have great reviews, protective edging (important for me with kids!), and are eye-pleasing.
I started with the 9 in 1 Modular Raised Garden Bed. This garden bed is awesome because it can be configured 9 different ways. I chose the 5×5 configuration as it fit the space the best.
How to Build the Vego Garden Raised Bed
**Always read the instructions that accompany the product when putting together any Vego Garden Bed.**

I began by unboxing all the pieces of the 9 in 1 Vego Modular Garden Bed and removing the protective film.
Then, I laid out the pieces in my chosen configuration.
I connected all the flat pieces first, according to the 5 by 5 configuration. **Be sure to read the instructions at this point as there is one type of nut for the top two rows and another type for the bottom four.
Next, I connected the curved pieces to the flat pieces. **The curved piece edge should go on the outside of the flat piece. Continue until the entire raised bed is together.
Once the raised bed is together, I used the included tool to tighten all the nuts/screws.
Lastly, I applied the protective edging to the top of the raised garden bed, clipping the additional that is left over after going around the entire top of the bed.
I’m a beginner gardener for sure. This potted plant is about the height of my past gardening experience. I’m excited for you to follow me on my family’s beginner gardening journey!
