I made these last summer for my sister.
And she didn't even use them yet!
Very easy to make.
She did want them taller, so that is the only modifacation I made. We're hoping the bunnies won't notice all the yummy veggies up this high :)
I know, probably wishful thinking.
Makes a great kid corral too.

Do these have a bottom in

Do these have a bottom in them? And if so, do you suppose you could put them on wheels? I wouldn't fill them entirely full with dirt, obviously, but would put filler in the bottom-- styro peanuts work great. Thoughts?

I used the 1x6 cedar fence

I used the 1x6 cedar fence boards. The length is a whole board, so about 6 feet long. I didn't trim or cut them at all. And the width is a board cut in half, so about 3 feet wide. And four boards high, so about 2 feet tall.

Tidbits

Thanks for posting the pictures! I have been looking for a higher raised bed idea as I do not like stooping over (heading towards age 60..)
A good filler would be leaves, straw, grass clippings, flattened cardboard boxes, newspapers. That's what I am going to use.
Cedar is pretty durable and doesn't need to be stained. I would use people friendly stain if you choose to go that way since it is going to be next to your food source.
I want to thank my daughter for sharing your website with me!! Great ideas!!!

This is incredible! Good for you! Please let me know how the sculpture project with the art teacher turns out. I have a fantastic art teacher at my school who would definitely be up for there. How will you display the sculptures without fear of wind/weather damage? What will they be made of? Etc...
