Raised (anti-gopher/rabbit/deer) vegetable garden

We love home fresh home grown vegetables, but so did the rabbits and gophers. This raised garden saves the food for us and is easier to tend. The added height on the corner posts allow us to drape a deer net to protect from those taller thieves. The material selection was made to coordinate with the house and deck (earlier project). The large washers are decorative but double as a measuring gauge when seeds are to be placed with 12 in spacings. This volume of dirt weighs about 1500 pounds. The estimate of 40 hours includes planning and painting.
