When designing your raised garden bed use anchor brackets for your base layer when creating a long garden (more than two boards long on any side) or live in a climate where frost pushout is a concern. The saw-toothed barbs along the stake secure your raised garden or garden edging to the ground and are strong enough to resist frost-heave. Anchor brackets are especially useful for landscape borders which are generally long runs of boards that don’t connect into a loop or square. The barbed stake will stabilize your edging against frost pushout or from being loosened by mowers or any human disturbance.
You can only use anchor brackets on the base layer of your garden. If your design calls for additional layers you will use 2” Stacking Brackets to connect your additional layers. 2” 4-Way Bracing Brackets also available for more complex connections.
Our Raised Garden Bed Anchor and Stacking Brackets pivot 270 degrees, allowing endless design options. Create unique designs like diamonds, zig zags, or traditional right-angle designs.
When creating your own designs, keep in mind you may need some specialized accessories. When creating straight runs of boards that don’t connect you may want to purchase finishing sleeves to create a professional finish.
Did you know? You can also install your raised garden bed on hard surfaces like patios, rooftops and decks. For hard surface installs, simply use a hacksaw to remove the barbed stake section below the bracket. You may want to line the bottom of your raised bed with landscape fabric to make it easy to clean up later and to help prevent staining and dirt loss in these types of installs.
Each 2-pack represents two complete corners or connections. For a 4’ x 4’ raised garden bed you will need two 2-packs.
The Frame It All system of modular raised garden beds, borders, sandboxes and accessories was designed by our founder, Anthony Topping. As a professional landscape designer who spent many years creating high-end gardens in the Tri-State New York area, he felt there had to be a way to give homeowners the ability to easily create quality landscaping features and gardens for much less than paying a professional.
Here’s a note from Anthony on why he designed this product:
“Our medieval barbed stake design of our anchor brackets prevents your raised garden bed or border from heaving during the winter. The barbed stakes also anchor gardens built on sloped areas that might get occasional water runoff.” - Anthony
