Pressure treated wood is not bad to use. Wood that was pressure treated after 2003 is ok. Before 2003 was when they used arsenic. ITS OK!

These slim garden beds are perfect for those with narrow landscapes. The homeowners here are reaping the benefits of homegrown food without giving away too much of their precious yard space.
