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: www.thenymelrosefamily.blogspot.com

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