The owners provided the chairs; they are classic, painted, Adirondack chairs and you could probably source them from a number of locations.

I believe that is a Scots Pine. It was restoratively pruned and saved by the owner from the chopping block. Ultimately the color of the bark worked so well with the steel and cedar it was the best choice.

I would def agree. Thanks. I'm trying to prune some pines on my property and that's the effect I'm going for.

Hi, we used clear cedar with a stain/finish to protect the wood. These are metal support posts, but we have done a similar fence using stained wood, but the profile is larger.

They are water troughs, we did choose to put holes in the bottom for drainage and run irrigation up through the holes. The containers are filled with soil--a good organic potting soil specially formulated for edibles.

I'm doing doing this in the next few week for sure. Any need to paint the outside or will they stay protected from rust? Thanks so much, these are splendid!

For most foods, contact with galvanized steel is perfectly safe. Only acidic foods should not come in contact with galvanized steel according the the U.S. Food & Drug Administration

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Amy Renea added this to Cream-of-the-Crop Vegetable Gardens
For a modern, whimsical twist on the classic raised bed, try galvanized watering troughs.
Danyelle Mathews added this to Raised Beds Lift Any Garden
Metal horse troughs are readily available at most feed and supply stores and would be a nice conversation piece in your yard.
Laura Gaskill added this to Easy Green: Weekend Detox for Your Home
Sunday: Plant something. Plants help clean the air and keep our planet cool. Do your part and take advantage of whatever space you have to grow something. Don't have a huge yard? Not a problem. Get creative with container planting, a vertical garden or even a pot of herbs on your windowsill.
Laura Gaskill added this to 10 Terrific DIY Home and Garden Projects
Project: Container gardenDifficulty: EasyEstimated time: An afternoonWant an edible garden in raised beds but don't have the time or desire to do major construction? Take a cue from the folks at Banyon Tree Design Studio and fill galvanized troughs (yes, the kind livestock drink from) with soil and compost, and use them as containers to plant your seeds.
Samantha Schoech added this to 10 Imaginative Garden Ideas
Aluminum water troughs make perfect raised beds with no building required.
J. Peterson Garden Design added this to 8 Materials for Raised Garden Beds
Stock TanksThis may be one of the easiest options for raised garden beds. Stock tanks, which are typically round or rectangular with rounded ends, are generally used to feed farm animals, but they've been gaining popularity in recent years as a great way to add urban chic to the garden. The only real work you will have to do is add some drainage holes to the bottom of the tank, which is easily completed with a drill and a ¼- or ½-inch drill bit.Pros: Stock tanks are readily available at feed stores and are relatively inexpensive. There is no assembly required, and they will last indefinitely. They are also movable, which is handy if you redesign your garden layout. They come in a variety of sizes. Cons: You'll have to have a truck to transport stock tanks home or arrange for a delivery at an added cost. The sides of the tanks can heat up during the summer, but it's typically not a scorching heat that will burn skin.Cost: Stock tanks typically run $30 to $150, depending on the size.
