This raised garden bed is made from pine and the Trellising is red cedar. We used 9 gauge wire (overkill I know but we had it on hand from the grape trellis system we are making. And we anchored the wire using these one way wire anchors.

We have 2 black berry plants on the close (or left) and two red raspberry varieties on the far side (or right). We will plant a golden raspberry in the middle.

All the trellis construction was done custom by me. :) We wanted something that was low maintenance, added value to our property and could grow something that anyone would want to eat. All the decorative cuts were done with the miter saw and a router. The cross beam dado cuts were done with the sliding miter saw.

I do that same sort of trellis with tomatoes. Works like a charm!

looks great. Too bad the raspberries are so misbehaved. You might have to widen the bed next year.

Next year you’ll have a thousand plants. Nice trellis, but watch out for the birds. I had a ton of berries that were just barely ready and I was so excited….then looked out the window one morning and there was a flock of birds picking them off. They ate all the berries in a matter of minutes. Maybe they won’t be so bad in your neighborhood.

I’ve gone wireless with my raspberries, some serious 802.11n training was needed but they performed perfectly after the fact!
