These were custom made. It would depend on what size you would like to make the planters and what wood you would want to use. Sorry we couldn't be more helpful with this answer!

Looks like carriage bolts. Must be posts at the corners.

½” native grit. Stones have ‘regional’ names. This is in New England….it’s a blend of brown, gray, white & tan. Hope this helps!

I am building something similar but using corrugated metal on for the sides. I plan to use straw bales to fill the bottom for drainage and then add the topsoil. That way I do not have to get so much extra dirt.

We used a filter fabric on the inside with a plastic vapor barrier. We made sure to only stain the outside of the wood so the chemicals wouldn't seep inside the soil. Besides this, these planters require little maintenance and you can fill them with soil now if you wish. Hope this helps and let us know if you have any other questions!

Unfortunately we didn't select the color of the house, but you may want to check out Silver Sateen by Behr, I believe it is fairly similar.

Need help with raised planter boxes. - What is the height and width? How deep is the soil?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Debra Prinzing added this to 8 New Uses for Your Side Yard
Edible garden. Raised beds lend order and structure to a kitchen garden. Depending on the dimensions, they also can be kid and grandparent friendly. For example, this set of eight raised beds, beautifully constructed from ipe or similar hardwood lumber, has details like mitered corners and smooth hardware, making them suitable for youngsters who want to stand at the edge and harvest carrots or radishes to their hearts’ content. And the capped walls are wide enough to double as seating — handy for someone with physical limitations.Mostly I admire this side kitchen garden for its attractive design, functional spacing (there’s room for a wheelbarrow between the raised beds) and the excellent proportions that hold their own with the scale of the home.See how to make a raised garden bed
