Planter boxes for the urban landscape or just a raised bed anywhere. Used cedar 2x6 and 5/4 cedar decking. Basic construction and screws. The long boxes needed a center support.
I lined the inside with Dewitt 5oz weed fabric (there is a difference in weed fabric....) I stapled it under the cap. Could cut a small trim piece, wrap the fabric around it and screw it in place as well.
Originally built in 2008, and the boxes are still in perfect condition.
The top plate is great for sitting. I was 50/50 on it, but it gets used more than i ever thought.
Thanks for looking
