FarmBot’s tracks need to be attached to supporting infrastructure such as a typical raised garden bed. Where you decide to install your FarmBot will determine how you setup your tracks and therefore what type of supporting infrastructure you need.

In the next sections we offer advice for building four types of supporting infrastructure: a fixed raised bed, a mobile raised bed, wood posts, and pier block supports. However, not every type of infrastructure is suitable for all of our kits. Refer to the table below to see our recommendations.

Be prepared

If you recently ordered a FarmBot kit, you may want to begin building your supporting infrastructure while your FarmBot is in the mail. This way you’ll be prepared for a faster assembly time when your package arrives.
