Answered
I have a lot of back issues but I sonlove working in the garden that my husband built me with wood but in 3 years it rotted. This year he built me outdoor shelving and we planted in pots but they didn’t do well either.

I miss my garden does anyone have any suggestions?

Thank you,
Athena

      freecycle Is a great resource and I actually have gotten bricks that we used for a different project in the past. I do like the concrete block idea someone else had I’ll have to see if anyone has some of those. I like the brick idea as well but would probably need alor of bricks. When we get the garden done, I will post pictures. Thank you for everyone’s ideas and help!!

    Trex, a non-wood deck product would most likely work if you needed a garden box that's tall. I believe it's made of vinyl. My raised beds are made of stacked concrete blocks, three layers tall.

    My friend gardens in metal horse troughs and they have lasted for years. Just drill drainage holes.
