Garden box - Fall 2018

My wife allocated a 12x12 section of our front yard to our son after he expressed interest in growing flowers and food. In order to do that he needed garden boxes. He and I sketched out different ideas and broke the project down into two parts, fall and spring. This is the fall project - a 6x6 ft section with five 2x2 ft garden boxes. After getting some books from the library, he decided on planting bulbs this fall and will do veggies in the spring. It was a fun build and my oldest jumped in and helped wherever he could.

Tools used:
Brushless Hammer drill
One+one miter saw (dual 4ah batteries)
Brushless Impact driver (new for this project and my first ever dedicated driver)
3ah and smaller battery (whatever came with the Artic Cove bucket fan)
40v Expand-it cultivator
40v Blower

Materials:
2x4s
2x6s
Deck screws

Lessons learned:
12ft boards don’t safely fit in my SUV
Need to buy a saw stand
Be more diligent about emptying the dust bag on saw or attach shop vac
