Raised Strawberry Pyramid Bed Plans

Here are the plans for the strawberry beds that we made.  This spring we made three of these; however, I plan to continue to add more strawberry beds as we can.

Strawberry Bed

Supply List

  • 2 – 2″x 6″ x 12′ boards
  • 2 – 2″x 6″ x 8′ boards
  • 3″ screws (I used torque screws)
  • Drill
  • Carpenter’s Square, tape measure and pencil

Cutting List

  • Cut both 12′ boards 30″, 30″, 42″ and 42″ lengths
  • Cut both 8′ board into 48″, 48″ lengths

Giving you:

  • 4 – 2″ x 6″ x 48″ boards
  • 4 – 2″ x 6″ x 42″ boards
  • 4 – 2″ x 6″ x 30″ boards


Screw the 4-48″ boards in a square. (Make sure that it is square by using the carpenter’s square.)  All boards will be on edge so that each tier is a 5 1/2″ deep. (They are called 2″ x 6″ but they are truly 1 1/2″ x 5 1/2″)

The 30″ boards are the third tier.  They are assembled the same was as  the 36″ boards.

This is an assembled bed:

After the tiers are stacked on top of each other, I put a screw in at an angle at each place where a tier is on top of the tier below  to make sure that it was stable.

I used weed barrier under the beds and then filled them with a compost and peat moss mixture and planted strawberries in them.



I realized after I initially published this that I had put the wrong measurement in for the second tier.  I hope that I caught my mistake before I caused anyone to cut the wrong lengths.  If not I am truly sorry!!

    What kind of wood are your boards? Do you worry about them rotting in a couple years?
