Six eight-foot long two-by-twelves make up the two new planter beds. Two were sawn in half to do the four-foot ends.
Quarter-inch hardware “cloth” screens the bottoms. Fastened together by impact wrench, using four-inch TimberLOK lag screws. The flat top plates are mostly decorative.
They are both buried about five inches deep, and first I had to rake-up the black tanbark and then shovel-out all the dirt onto a tarp. It was a good couple days work, and boy are those things heavy!
