« Part 1: The Plan Part 2 of Raised Gardens series Part 3: Construction »

I’ve got my own site where I like to write about my projects so rather than duplicate them here I’ll just provide a little teaser. If you’d like to read the full post just click here.

Since these gardens are going to be placed right at the end of our patio we decided to make the sides facing the house a little more interesting than just some redwood rails. We stumbled upon this company that sells wooden tiles for use indoors and really liked the look so we decided to give it a try ourselves…

-- Marc,

VERY COOL! I love your variations of depth to create a great texture! My playful side tells me that you need one of them (just one!) to be painted lime green or tangerine or some bright color. Even without the pop of color, that is pretty neat.

I like that alot, you’ve created a very unique design element for your Patio Garden. Your flowers and veggies will be proud to give back to you from these beds.
