Raised Garden Planter – Planting a small garden in your backyard is the perfect way to enjoy fresh vegetables all the long or beautiful year-round flowers throughout the seasons. With some basic tools and some landscape woods, you can create a planter the perfect size for a small garden of vegetables or flowers. A raised planter can provide superior drainage compared to a standard garden plot, especially if the soil drains poorly. A pot that is raised is almost impossible to water in excess since the excess water simply runs off.
Select the size and location for your raised pot. The area should be relatively flat and receive enough sunlight for the type of plants you plan to grow. Prepare the pot site. Dig up any grass and weeds, and then level the soil. Dig a trench around the perimeter of the pot site. Measure the area of the pot and stake out the perimeter of the chain.

Continue to stack the landscape woods on top of each other, and fixing them with screws.
