A couple years ago a coworker asked me to make a planter box to go up against the stone wall in her backyard. It’s a pretty big one at 12 feet long. Two tiered to grow greens and herbs in the low boxes, and vegetables in the taller boxes in the back.

Oh yeah, everything was cut off site and assembled on site. Went together beautifully.

Nice, but it took you years? What took you so long???? (you have to see how long it takes me sometimes to start a project, Wifes been asking for something for about 10 years)...

I think you need 2 more supports in the middle The soil when wet will be too heavy and will pull the bottom out. Did you put drainage holes in the bottom?

Haha…I guess I should have been a bit more clear about this. It’s a project from a couple years ago that I only got around to posting now. To your questions, the box is supported underneath, you just can’t see them…the base is framed well too (but no pics), and of course there are drainage holes. :-)

Great job, this is really cool and I bet it looks great full of veggies and herbs in the summer! Great idea for in front of a retaining wall like this.
