Steps to create your own concrete garden bed brace

Create a mould out of 1/4″ plywood and 1×6 lumber, and assemble it using drywall screws for easy disassembly later on when the concrete has dried.


Note that there are two holes on each side of the mould. This is where the bolts will go which will hold the 1/2″ diameter PVC pipes.


When it comes to concrete reinforcement, a rabbit wire mesh should do the trick. This sturdy material will give your concrete the extra support it needs to withstand any challenges that come its way.


Pour in your ready mix concrete and let it set for at least 48 hours. You’ll want to give it plenty of time to set so that it’s strong and durable.
