I have been experimenting with the idea of adding raised beds to my garden. When I tour our local arboretum I have seen many different “variations” of the typical raised bed – some with stone (limestone is very abundant in our area), others with brick pavers, some made of redwood, etc.
After having priced out the cost of buying the pre-made kit, I decided it was time to purchase a compound saw in order to be able to create both notched and 45 degree angle cut beds.
The Hitachi C10FCH2 caught my eye.
This has been one of the best investments I have made. As the demonstrator suggests – it is lightweight and easy to carry from location to location and still packs a punch of power.
As I said, it may not be the first tool you might think of, but it should definitely be included in your gardening arsenal.
