DIY Sandbox

Our sandbox used to have just two by fours surrounding it. We dug it up, added patio paver sand as a base and then screwed in eight foot pressure treated 4x4s. He then covered the inside with landscaping fabric. The sandbox was finished off with Trex decking screwed into the top. For my projects like these visit:
Raking and adding of 35 bags of sand!
Patio paver sand with tamping complete.
8 4x4s screwed in with landscaping fabric inside.
Last addition, Trex decking being screwed in through the top at all four corners.

    Wonderful project! I'm thinking I would need some type of cover due to numerous households allowing their cats to roam free.
