Any wood sealer or preservative will aid in making the Cedar last longer, however, good drainage is the key to the long term success.

We have done some experimenting and the best product to preserve cedar that we have found is called "Australian Timber Oil". It is made by Cabot.

Planter boxes - I love your planter boxes. What would you recommend for a very small yard. We love in a townhouse with little space but would love to grow vegetables using a planter box as I do not want to use the existing soil. Thanks!

It really depends on the size. Elevated or raised planter boxes are the key to overall success when growing veggies or herbs as it allows for good soil depth and the ability to bring in new soil. We use a product in Vancouver called Transform Soil. Very good soil from a local supplier.

The plants along the back next to the fence are Cornus Alba 'Elegantisma' and in front is a row of Spanish Lavender.... originally it was going to be Red Twig Dogwood

Brackets and same material as what the planter is built out of... 2x6 or larger if needed... sometimes 4x6

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Marianne Lipanovich added this to How to Grow Your Own Sweet Summer Crops
Consider adding raised beds. Many edibles are low-to-the-ground plants. That’s fine for a farm, but designwise it can be a bit boring for a home landscape. Raised beds add some design interest to a space and make it easier to care for the plants and pick the vegetables and fruit. They can also keep some of the more aggressive growers from taking over the rest of the yard.
