Original 8-in-1 Metal Raised Garden Bed

Regular price $179.00 Sale price $199.00


Birdies metal raised garden beds are the #1 raised bed in Australia, and they are finally available in America!

They're made from cold-rolled galvanized steel with an Aluzinc coating, ensuring durability and longevity under all environmental conditions.

Customizable: Each bed can be assembled into 1 of 8 different shapes, giving you complete flexibility in your garden design.

15" Tall: Compared to most metal beds at 12" tall or less, these beds offer improved pest resistance and season extension. They also allow for better soil life, drainage, and root growth.

Easy to Assemble: Put your bed together with stainless steel fasteners for no-tool construction, keeping your bed sturdy and safe from bowing.

Lightweight and Strong: Cold-rolled galvanized Aluzinc steel is extremely lightweight but will stand the test of time.

Rust and Corrosion Resistant: Aluzinc is 2-6x more effective against rust and corrosion than standard galvanized coatings. These will outlast even the highest-quality wooden raised beds with no fading over time.

Safe to UseThe rolled steel edge at the top comes with a durable safety strip, which looks fantastic and protects you from injury.


Each bed you buy can be configured into one of these eight dimensions. The bolded dimensions are the ones our customers most often choose.

Q. What does the "8-in-1" design mean?

Birdies Beds are panelized in their design. Each kit comes with 4 corner panels and 6 side panels. Because of this paneled design, you can achieve 6 different dimensions when constructing your bed depending on how many panels you use, and how you orient them.

This flexibility allows you to customize your raised bed to your exact growing space.

Q. Are they safe to grow food in?

Birdies beds are made from aluzinc galvanized steel and then further powder-coated with a non-toxic paint. Neither the paint nor the metal itself will leach anything harmful into your soil.

Q. Will the beds get too hot in the summer or hot climates?

These beds were developed in Australia and many growers over there routinely have crazy heat with no issues. The metal is strong, but thin and the bulk of the soil (especially when coupled with mulch on top) cools the metal quite well, so you don't get an abundance of heat transfer into the soil.

Q. Are the beds bottomless?

Yes, the beds are bottomless.

Q. What are the beds made from? Will they rust?

The panels are made from 22-gauge cold-rolled steel, galvanized with a combination of aluminum and zinc. It's the same material used for roofs, gutters, and water tanks.

In a direct comparison with standard galvanized coatings, aluzinc performs 2-6x better at rust and corrosion resistance.

Wooden beds, even using high-quality wood will fade and rot in ~5 years, depending on the type of wood. Birdies Beds will rust eventually, however it will be many years before this happens.

We have beds in use since 2007 (over 13 years) that are showing minimal signs of corrosion.

If you keep the soil free-draining, and 6-8 pH, you should have no problems with corrosion for many years to come.

Q. Can I place the beds on hard surfaces such as concrete?

If you would like to place your bed on pavers, concrete, or tiles we recommend using a geo-textile fabric.

To use, place your bed into position, place the fabric on the inside bottom of the garden bed with excess fabric going up each side, and fill with soil.

The fabric allows the water to drain freely but keeps the soil in place.

Optional: To protect the surface, thick builders plastic or coreflute can be placed down before placing your bed into position, once the bed is filled, the excess plastic can be trimmed around the edge of the garden bed with an Exacto knife.

Q. What is the thickness of your metal beds?

22 gauge.

Q. Can the clip on safety strip handle freezing temps?

Yes, it is designed to withstand freezing winter temperatures.
