Here is a father and son project we recently did together .My son wanted a raised garden in his yard so he came up with this design and I helped him build it .It is 21 ft x 21 ft x 3 ft tall and made from white cedar .All of the top sections are removable for easy access .

John are you going to set trays on the walls? I’ve never seen anything like this!

The inside is getting filled with top soil . There is a gate to access the center of the garden .

Kind of cool. With that much space what is the reason for the raised garden….....Why not just plant in the earth like normal.

It is to keep animals from getting into the garden like rabbits .

I think you shuld take a extented vacation after all that work. That would take many truck loads of soil to fill that huge garden, and the truck cannot dump it inside. Nice work though.

Some of us old folks like a raised bed rather than crawling around on hands and knees.

I like that. How many board feet of cedar will that take? Are you going to use any kind of sealer?

I like that idea. That is going to take a lot of soil to fill. Does it keep the deer out of the garden?
