  • I am intereted in knowing what is used as the bottom and is it preforated.

  • 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?

  • Please give me info how to build and material list.

  • I used cedar for materials but you could use any untreated wood. I got the plans from this site: http://ana-white.com/2012/11/plans/counter-height-garden-boxes-2-feet-x-4-feet 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.
