This will require not a lot of sawing. Measuring in feet, build a 4 x 3 x 1box. Get pot mix instead of soil because it simplifies the process of carrying water towards the top. Piece together the 3-foot and a 4-foot board at 3 pieces each side. Then, saw the 2 x 4 planks to make 11-inch planks as 4 parts are needed to prop the boxes’ corners. Next, screw the 2x 4 parts at every side by drilling pilot holes before placing in the screws. Screw the 1x 2 at the bottom of the 4-foot sides, as they will become the basis of the whole frame. Finally, paint a layer of protective coating and dry it.

Next, move on to the 1x10x3 boards, where they should be placed on the 1×2 pieces. Get a liner and nail it on the planter’s inside; this will take some time because of the difficulty of keeping it flat. Now, get punctured pipes and saw to size, thentake a drill a make a hole at one side of the pipe that is on the same level with the pipes, to which a tiny drain will be made. With the main labor finished, pour the mix in and fill up the gaps. The space between the pipes should be even.

When finished, place a piece of landscape protection over the soil. Finally, fill up the box with the rest of the mix and addfertilizer, then water. Happy planting!
