2. Cut eight 4-foot lengths of redwood and four 1½-foot lengths of 2-by-2 lumber. After you cut the 2-by-2 to length, cut one end of each of the four pieces at a 45-degree angle. The slanted ends will help hold the finished planting box in place.

Love it! I made similar boxes a few years ago, with one real important addition. I made them to be exactly 4 by 8 and then I bought honeycombed cleared plastic lids. I then used heat-activated hinges that open and close the lids when according to the temperature. The boxes gave me lettuce in Philadelphia on Christmas and this spring, we were eating greens in March, planted in February. With a little ingenuity, you can gain months of growing time by converting them into cold frames when its cold outside. Cedarshield to keep cedar planks good.

More » 9BookmarkEmailPrintEmbed If you're dreaming of growing your own vegetables this coming season, then building a raised garden box is the perfect springtime project for you. With a few supplies, tools and these easy-to-follow instructions, you'll be slicing into your very own homegrown tomatoes before you know it. Add to Ideabook A raised garden offers a great way to control the quality of your soil, as you can fill it with a mix of topsoil, planting mix and compost. This deep, rich soil mix will allow you to grow more vegetables than you could in the same square footage of regular garden soil. Add to Ideabook Here's how to build your own raised garden bed 1. Gather your supplies. To build one 4-foot by 4-foot planting box you will need: Two 16-foot redwood or cedar boards (reclaimed wood is a good sustainable choice) 6 feet of 2-by-2 treated lumber Galvanized screws Chop saw Power drill and bit Tape measure Clamps Add to Ideabook 2.
