I wanted to grow tomatoes on my deck because it gets more sun than the small yard. So I build a big box on wheels so I could move it around.
I made a box with 2 x 6 wood. screwed slats to the bottom for drainage. It is 26" wide by 52" long and 20' deep.
I used some wire mesh on top of the slats.
I attached 1x6 pcs of wood along the 2 short sides to attach the heavy duty castors to in each corner.
lined the bottom with a pc of left over trampoline material. Lets water through but very heavy duty and ridged. Stapled it in place.
then I lined the whole sides of the box with the weed block material. Stapled it along the top edge and then cut off the excess.
framed the top edge with 1x4s to hide the staples and look tidier.
I made a 2x2 frame to put on the top and drilled holes half way in (to fit the pipe) and then bent pvc pipes that I had left over from another project...
