so I'd like to have a vegetable garden using planters like these. How shall I plan for water drainage? It's also a great spot because (I think) I can keep the deer and rabbits out by having a gate at the top of the stairs that lead to it.
Wonderful raised planters. What is the
trying to replicate these exact beds, I have my wood cut to length and finished. Do you know what color stain was used, I really like the color and would like to get the same color if possible. Also, how are the rails fastened to the bed? Thanks!

space for veg garden. If I make these elegant raised beds I'd still need to line them with something so the roots of veggies don't reach down into leaching field. We're in greater Boston area.

get into and you can fill them with great-quality soil right from the start, rather than just trying to enrich poor-quality soil. You can build your own raised beds from sealed pine or cedar pieces or purchase some old jarrah railway sleepers to work as the frame.
