I needed to cover up a shameful space in my backyard. And, provide another area for seating. I wanted it to be cheap, easy and fast. This method of building a deck was perfect! The only tool needed was a drill.

You could use RR ties as the supports in the middle too if you have them or can get them
cheap. Tammy- garden snakes are good for the garden and helps keep mice away that can get into your house.
It is not hard to make a bench from an old bed head & foot board. Finding the right one to make it something special is the problem. For instructions on making one go to my blog http://pjhdesignsoneofakind.blogspot.com

We used palettes for the inside walls of my goat barn and stall doors, it was supposed to just
be a temporary fix until I could get up the outside walls after I ran out of sheets of OSB. But it looks great and was free...I still need to rip down the OSB and do the rest of the walls with pallette boards. Much sturdier, lasts longer and looks like a wood lined horse stable. This wasn't our first attempt at using found items to build with. We built a 8 ft by 16 ft chicken coop with second hand lumber for framing, Covered it with slats from privacy fence that was discarded and used someone's discarded deck boards for the floor and the window was also a curb find. Only thing we bought was screws and shingles.
I started may 28th planting 4 tomatoes around a garbage can with holes drilled in the bottom rim and a second row up about 10 inches... buried the can to where the top holes just barely
were above the ground... put in two shovels full of compost... then I fill the can up with water ever 2 days and try not to water the leaves... these four plants are now 5 ft 4 inches in less that a month and a half and loaded with green tomatoes and about a hundred sets of tomato blossoms...
