A video about simple box planters for your patio. All the materials were made from scrap lumber and plywood.
A standard 8 feet long by 2 feet wide planter can be constructed over a weekend.
For this project, a 2’ x 8’ planter was made for the back wall of our home and an “L” shape planter was made to edge the corner of the adjoining patio. The “L” shape consisted of two 2′ x 4′ planters laid out in an “L” shape. The planters are open at the bottom but covered with landscape fabric and lined with recycled cardboard. A soil mix of consisted of potting soil and mushroom manure was mixed together in each planter.
