FYI metal beds or troughs try painting them white to keep cool and from rusting out there a good non-toxix paints & or coatings avail as for wood beds either coat and seal inside walls with either coatings or wrap the sides a couple of layers with white 12mil plastic it is very heavy duty it is mainly used or called shrink wrap alternate your vertical seams by 50 % and the iside of your box wont rot for a long time. Take care all

You can also make beautiful planter boxes and garden beds out of concrete block. The benefits to using block are numerous- block doesn't rot, it comes in a variety of colors, it's easy to build with (no screws, hammers etc. are needed) and you can create interesting shapes and designs!

If you go here, you can get some tips on how to build and you can get some free instructions, too:

We don't have quantity surveyors in the U.S. so I'm not sure I can answer your question. Here, the work of a QS is split among a couple of different disciplines.

Material takeoffs (quantity estimates of materials, labor, subcontract labor, etc.) are typically performed by the builder. We suggest this be done as early in the design phase as possible since it can help inform the design. Most modern architectural design software comes with takeoff capabilities which really helps speed up and improve the accuracy of the takeoff process.

The appraisal of the proposed construction (from completed plans) is a task for a certified appraiser.

Contract issues are normally handled by attorneys whose legal practice includes real estate and construction law.

The inspection of construction in progress for the purpose of authorizing payment is typically performed by a bank inspector (often an appraiser hired by the bank on a project basis to serve as an inspector.)

Owners who want independent inspection or guidance on the construction progress against schedule, etc. may opt to hire an engineer or architect to serve as the owner's representative.

I would check with design and construction professionals in your area about how/when to best involve a QS in the process.
