This was a simple garden box I made for the Dover St Garden in Oakland CA.

a “simple” box?
That’s wonderful!!
Now you’ll have to go back and take a picture of it when it is filled with plants.

I love how it follows the path. Nicely done.

I’m with MsDebbieP. We will definitely need some follow up shots when the foliage “comes in”.
Those are some pretty big planks you used as well.
That looks like it’ll be around for a while!
Nice job.

That’s really cool. Is it a community garden?

Those are great for gardeners in wheelchairs or the elderly that can’t seem to get up and down like we used to. What kind of bottom are in them? What serves for drainage? Keep up the good work. Don

It is wonderful how it simply follows the path. And how many times have I heard “It is simple!” – nothing is simple.

Absoutely beautiful. I need to make some of these for my wife for vegetable plants. She can’t bend down and garden. What type of wood did you use?
