After my beautiful girlfriend requested a small area in the garden to experiment with growing veggies I decided to build a raised patch. Reason being we have a very inquisitive pup.

What you will need

Some scrap wood. Enough to accommodate your design

Fasteners of your choosing

Tools to shape wood

How to do this project

1

Identified a area where I would like to place the garden and based my measurements on that.

Got some scrap wood. And cut to size based on my rough sketch. Practising my mitre cuts on the front and side planks that would make up the box.

Figured I'd put a frame around the top to clamp down the plastic and give a more appealing look. So cut them to size and sanded quickly

Now just wait for the girlfriend to plant what she wants. Looks like she's going for cherry tomatoes and sweet peppers
