Make a Whimsical Raised Garden with M Brace

If you’ve got some wood laying around and want to make a quick raised bed garden frame without needing a hammer, look no further than the easy solution of using the M Brace system from Art of the Garden! Quite simply they are steel corner pieces with slots to simply slide the wood in, no nails!and they have whimsical cutouts to add flair to the design, and they are also going to develop a great patina from being weathered over time. Or if you are like me and wanted to speed that process a little, you could just leave them in the rain. (or not, you can protect them and paint them colors as well)

The braces have holes in them to anchor but for me I just filled it with dirt and since we need to put up a critter barrier we have braces all around, and right now its snug and secure.

Seriously this box went together in minutes, even faster than the Frame it All. Of course we had to use our own wood with this system though. I like that it looks like its been here for years! Love it! And they offer nearly 20 different cutout designs from the sun like I received to things like swirls and even a carrot shape! I am a fan of whimsy and these braces definitely fit that.
