    Great planter - Some plans for a garden/allotment shed would be good - on the lines of unitised walls etc so it is easily adapted in size for various uses. Stu20
  • How about plans for a garden shed or storage bunker for tools? Many of the ones available commercially are pretty flimsy and expensive for what they are and it would be good to be able to build one to suit my own needs and garden space.
  • I'll have to have a go at this

    excellent feature for the corner of the patio
  • I love how this looks. We are building my daughter and her husband a low level deck soon and we need something to put on the high corner and this looks like it will work just right. I have a question though. Since the plants will be draining directly onto the deck boards do I have to worry about the wood rotting underneath? Of course, the deck is also built with pressure treated lumber.
  • Being a novice to this could someone where the screws should go. My thoughts are that if you drill holes in the end of each of the lengths and then alternate the layers you will get a clash! Or am I just being really stupid and I should just attach the wooden pieces where I see fit until the final layer?

    Any help would be appreciated as I am hoping to attempt this this coming weekend.

  • What a great planter.
