This is my finished project….
So I decided to tweak the plans a little to get what I wanted exactly.
I am going to share what you will need and the steps I
took to build my customized planter garden that is (hopefully) bunny proof!

(scrap pieces of 1×2 and 1×4)
The cleats don’t have to be exact, just don’t want them too long.
When I went to screw on my legs,
I used whatever spare boards I had laying around.
Why not, right? They are free and nobody is going to see them!
I used some leftover cedar and even white pieces of pine (see the white peeking through).
The top pieces of wood were recycled from Sebastian’s old bedroom shelves.
I purposely left space between the boards for water to drain out.
Inside the bottom I placed some gardener’s clothe to retain the soil.
After I finished building the planter I got an idea
that it would be cool to add a flowering vine to my garden. So I also added on a little trellis.
I didn’t fill the box completely full with soil, although you could if you like.
Mine was just a combination of the soil from my old square foot garden boxes.
It would have been nice to plant more veggies, but I think I was a little late in the season.
Oh well. There’s always next year, right?
Now all I can think is… grow baby, grow!
I will keep you updated on the veggies growth and if we actually fooled those bunnies.
For now, I am pretty happy with my new garden project. 🙂
