I found the plans on the website last year but we never got around to building it. So this year it was first on the list!! I wanted a large enclosed garden because we had a hard time keeping our dogs out of our last boxed garden. I followed the plans pretty closely, making minor changes to give us more room for planting.
I did not use the corner wood pieces for bracing because I did not like how they looked. Instead I used brackets made for decks that I can't see from the outside of the garden. I also made a custom gate to mimic the custom railings I had made for our deck. Added brackets to the outside for hanging baskets. Still needs to be stained and sealed. Hoping to get that done next week.
Note: I bought 22 2cubic feet bags of Miracle Grow Flower and Vegetable soil to fill the garden boxes.
Approximate costs were around $180.00 for wood/stain/gate hardware, netting and deck screws.
Approximate costs for the soil was $140.00.
$140 for soil
