Greenes Cedar Raised Garden Bed
Store: Ace Hardware
Price: $29.99 with in-store pickup
Lowest By: $21
Is It Worth It?: Starting a raised bed garden is an easy way to dodge some of a gardener's worst headaches. "Bad dirt is out, because you fill a raised bed with a customized soil-and-compost blend," according to Popular Mechanics. "Drainage is built into the bed walls, which hold the soil in place to keep erosion in check. Greater exposure to the sun warms the bed, which allows more plant diversity and extends the growing season." You can get started for just $30 with this Greenes Cedar Raised Garden Bed kit. That's a $21 savings on this 48x48x5" kit, which is stackable and expandable.
