Timber / wood
WoodBlocX components fit together using large plastic dowels and can be used to create strong raised beds. The blocks are topped with bevelled capping.
The wood is specially selected pine from sustainably managed forests. It is quarter-sawn (avoiding the centre of the tree to minimise distortion and cracking) and pressure treated twice during the maufacturing process. The first treatment is before machining and the second is after cutting and drilling. This ensures full penetration of the preservative through the wood and gives a service life of over 20 years in ground contact.
The recycled plastic dowels have a patented locking action when assembled, meaning raised beds will form one large rigid structure with many connections holding it together. Therefore WoodBlocX structures need no foundations and will not crack or break with time.
WoodBlocX is easy to build. The pieces are light enough to carry and no special tools are required.
