Do I need any tools to set up raised beds?
No tools are required for basic raised bed assembly. It’s important, however, to level the ground before setting up raised beds. This is easiest to do using a hoe or mattock to dig a level trench beneath the planter sides. It’s also a good idea to improve soil drainage and aeration by loosening the ground below the bed using a turning fork or shovel.
Of course you’ll also need a shovel and possibly a wheelbarrow to fill the beds with soil. Trellises and optional trim packs attach to raised beds with the included screws using a screwdriver. Planter bottoms ship in preassembled panels that tile to fit under raised beds. No tools are required for planter bottom installation.
