Gardens and Planting Design

These raised beds allow the homeowner- an avid vegetable gardener- to have ample space for a number of crops in a beautiful space. Raised beds are a great way to grow veggies in the Northwest for a variety of reasons. They drain well because they are elevated and are typically filled with a lighter soil than is found in the ground. The soil in these beds also warms more quickly in the spring, helping seeds to germinate and plants to develop roots faster.

Hi Richard, sorry I don't have that information. Our carpentry foreman made some adjustments to our original conceptual design and added some details to the planter boxes. I'm not sure exactly how the corners were joined. The little detail / overhang pieces may very well be a faux detail.
