DIY Garden Box for a Small Yard Tutorial

Do you have a small yard like we do? Space is a hot commodity? Yeah, I feel your pain. My husband and I really wanted to have a garden in our backyard, but we were concerned that we weren't going to have enough space. We found out the place where we get the most sun is right up against our house. So we decided to utilize this space and build a raised garden box! Check out this step by step tutorial on my blog!
Time: 2 Days Cost: $180 Difficulty: Medium
Doesn't it look great?!
This is what this spot looked like before.
Here's my husband constructing the box with pressure treated wood.
Make sure each of the pieces of wood going into the ground are level!
We used (8) 2 cubic feet bags of dirt to fill the garden box.

    Looks great. I personally would only put ornamental plants in a raised bed made from pressure-treated wood, but that's' a decision everyone has to make for him- or herself.

      @Kristina Hinck-Lynn Cedar is a frequently recommended material for raised beds and I've never heard of flavor transference being a downside.

      @Bonnie Plants Thank you! We love using your plants. We purchased some of your tomatoes, peppers, and tomatillos plants last year and they did amazing!
