5 Tips for Painting Raised Garden Beds

We naturally want pretty things in and around our homes and, to some, a plain wooden box filled with nothing but soil doesn’t fit the bill. So can you paint raised garden beds? Is it safe?

You can paint raised garden beds in any color or pattern you like however, most people prefer to leave the natural wood surface to age as nature intended.

Use a non-toxic, water based paint. While there are very few paints that are 100% natural, there are many brands of paints that are labeled non-toxic.
