How to build a simple elevated planter box

Building the planter box frame

Building the planter box frame

The first step of the project is to build the frame for the planter. Cut the components from 2×10 lumber at the right dimensions. Align the edges with attention and make sure the corners are square. Drill pilot holes and insert 3 1/2″ screws to lock everything together tightly.

Fitting the legs

Fitting the legs

Fit the 4×4 posts to the frame of the planter box. Align the edges with attention and check sure if the corners are square. Drill pilot holes through the frame of the planter box and insert 3 1/2″ screws into the legs.

Fitting the bottom slats

Fitting the bottom slats

Use 1×4 lumber for the bottom slats. Place a piece of 1/2′ plywood between the slats and align them at both ends. Drill pilot holes and insert 1 5/8″ screws to lock them into place tightly.

Fit the hardware cloth inside the planter box and then staple into place attentively.

Last but not least, you need to take care of the finishing touches. Fill the holes with wood putty and then let it dry out for a few hours. Apply a few coats of paint over the exterior of the planter to protect them from the weather elements (in case you don’t you cedar or redwood). Read the labels with attention and choose a product that is food safe.
