Like most of my projects, I saw this someplace else, “borrowed” the idea and adjusted it to fit my taste and my location. The frames are 40”, 30”, 20” and 10”, and a nitched 4×4 post in the back holds it all together.

Look mighty fine to me! The people over at Garden Tenders would enjoy seeing this too! There’s a little icon link at the top of this page that will take you there.
Thanks for sharing!

That is a super nice planter! I’m a little curious, do the inner tiers require any additional , that is other than the corner post.

Very nice planter. I’ll be “borrowing” this design!

MarkTheFiddler, there is a stake buried under the second frame at the corner, but the third and top ones are – so far – just fine with a couple of deck screws into the post.

Very nice and very original. A quick glance at the project title made me relate at once ’ A tired garden planter’ I thought “that’s me” My mistake.

Tj, thanks for the explanation. I can see how the one additional stake is all you need. It makes sense.
