Idea for building raised beds.

I used Trex for my raised garden beds. The initial cost was more than wood but about ten years later, they are still going strong. I've moved some of the boxes and changed the shape of others. I'm happy with them.

These common foundation options are designed to support & anchor a structure.

Walls, piers, or posts, sit atop a spread footing, below the frost line, transmitting loads to the earth.

With each method meeting the necessary structural requirements, the 'post' foundation is an attractive choice for the speed, strength, simplicity, & substantial cost advantage.

Despite all this goodness, many feel compelled to avoid this foundation type because it's the only method that DOES NOT eliminate GROUND CONTACT, hence post longevity concern.

Even though chemical preservatives deliver solid decay & insect protection, Checks (splits/cracks) exposing non-treated wood, Inconsistent Chemical Absorption/Retention, and Chemical Leaching/Migration can pave a way for microorganisms & insects to bypass the preservative protection resulting in post failure.

By simply adding the Post Protector 'barrier' system & eliminating GROUND CONTACT, the aforementioned conditions that facilitate microorganism & insect attack instantly disappear!

Complementing chemical preservatives, Post Protector isolates the post so that decay-causing microorganisms (soil-dwelling/atmospheric) and destructive subterranean insects have NO post access.
