To make a square raised garden: - 4 equal lengths of 6x2 timber. I used 1200mm lengths as that was what fit in my car. Have the hardware guys at the store cut the timber to length for you. Ask for "dressed" timber- this means its the smooth stuff not the splinter stuff. - 4 L brackets with 10mm holes - 8 coach bolts (10mm diametre) - pencil - electric drill with 10mm bit - hammer and spanner - level - potting mix or compost - wood stain (optional)
* note.... I built this garden bed as a replacement for a rotten edging the previous owners of the house had built... And planted a tree in. Building around an existing tree is fraught with issues... Only do this with research and great care.
