The first set of plans for the garden included about 80 square feet of garden space among 4 4×4 raised planters, a 2×6 planter, and a 2×4 planter. These just didn’t fit in the actual garden plot.
So what we have this year are:
3 – 4×4
1 – 2 x 6
Total Gardening Space: 60 square feet.
Not knowing how long I would use these beds, we chose plain pine 2 x 8’s. My husband cut the wood to size ensuring to add an extra 1.5″ on either side to ensure the inside dimensions remained true to the 4×4 or 2×6 measure. The boards were screwed together with galvanized 3″ screws.
