I would love how you made these. These will allow me to plant a small garden which I have always wanted without all the back breaking work of digging up part of my yard. Do you have plans and a list of materials?

I used cedar for materials but you could use any untreated wood. I got the plans from this site:

I modifyed the plans buy using landscape fabric to line the bottom and insides of the beds

...and since I used landscape/weed blocker fabric, I was able to skip the coconut cloth the plans called for.

and you can see from my pics I also made my bed deeper then the plans by doubling up on the 1x6 for the sides

I'm making three of these today. I'm using 2x12 for mine so it will be a bit sturdier. Awesome project!

I used a similar pattern when I built a planter box but I lined it with hardy board and drilled holes in the bottom for drainage. I'm hoping that it will last longer instead of boards.
