Spring Project #1

My first project for the spring is to build 2 planter boxes. I got a late start on Saturday, but managed to complete the build of both 2 foot by 6 foot raised planters and fill one with dirt; unfortunately, I ran out of dirt before I could fill up the other, so I guess its back to Lowes after church!

I used 1×6’s for the sides supported in the corners by 2×4’s cut to 12 inches and a center 2×4 that’s parallel to the ground in order to provide lateral support. The dirt is a 50/50 mix of potting soil and compost, which is said to be perfect for vegetable gardens.

Pictures to follow.
