They were really simple to put together and took all of about 20 minutes to create each one. Each box cost approximately $10 for supplies.
To make one of your own, you will need:
6 Pre cut Dog Eared Pressure Treated Fence Picket (Approx. 4 ft tall)
1 2 x 2 piece
Finish Nails for your nail gun
Finish Nail Gun
If you do not have the miter saw, you can always get your Home Improvement store to do the cuts for you.
Cut dog ears off the top of each picket
* use the cut from the first picket to measure the cut on the rest of the pickets so that measurements will be exact.
Cut two of the 6 pickets in half for the shorter ends of the raised bed.
*giving you 4 short pieces
Cut your 2 x 2 into 6 pieces.
*We measured ours to be about 10 inches tall so that our pieces would be 1/4 from the top of the box.
Using your nail gun, attach two of the cut 2 x 2's to the short boards.
When you finish, do it a second time to create the other short end.
Attach one short side to the long boards using your nail gun and duplicate it for the other end.
Using your nail gun attach the last 2 x 2 in the middle of each long boards and you are done!
Now you can plant all of your veggies :)
I will be finishing them off with a coat of paint and some cute labels.
