♥ If you’re always on the lookout for more space to grow vegetables like I am then here’s an easy way to create it. I decided to add a 4 x 4 x 18″ H raised bed to the very last possible open area available in my garden. I chose the easy method and had the wood planks and posts pre-cut to the exact measurements needed at Home Depot. The planter sits right on top of the designated area “without the posts going into the ground” eliminating the need for digging post holes. For the remainder of the supplies I bought L-brackets, outdoor wood screws, water based paint (with primer included in the paint by Behr)- Color :“Fig Leaf” and wood specific clear-caulking. Using a caulking in between the wood slats and around the posts keeps the planter looking cleaner from water and dirt stains. Apply the caulking to the inside of the planter before painting.
The total cost for the planter was $96.01 including all the supplies needed to finish the project, not a bad addition! Total Time: 2.5 hours- completed in a weekend.
Quick addition to the planter with purchased plants: Thyme, Onion, Rosemary, Sweet Pea Flowers, Parsley and Oregano and plans to sow seeds in-between next weekend.
