I would like to grow vegies in a raised bed. I was thinking about building a planter box, although I have seen that you can purchase them. Would you build one yourself? If so, anyone got any (simple) plans I could follow?
Thanks for the offer Rod.
I've been offered some railway sleepers so was thinking about using them. But they are very big and heavy, and I don't like my chances of being able to cut them.
As I was walking into Bunnings yesterday, they had a couple of pallets of these Ekodeck composite sleepers. Never seen them before. Just another option. $24.95 each in a range of colours. 150 x 50 x 1800mm. Bit more expensive than treated pine. Didn't have enough time to browse so couldn't tell you if specialist brackets etc required.
I saw these the other day - could be a good alternative to building your own. They are Australian made.
The self-watering system and cover should help promote/accelerate growth. The cover would also be useful for keeping pests at bay (and pets). Different sizes are available and stands.
