DIY Planter Box

Introduction: DIY Planter Box

About: I love to build DIY wood projects.

I built this DIY Planter Box few years back with pressure treated lumber and corrugated steel roof panels on the sides. Over the years we had many different vegetables grown in the planter box. I love how it looks and it holds a lot of dirt for vegetable plants with deep roots. Also, the box is at convenient height for taking care of the plants.


• 2x4x8' (x6)

• 2x6x8' (x3)

• 2 1/2" Pocket Hole Screws

• 2 1/2" Wood Screws

• Corrugated Steel Roof Panels (x4)

Tools for this project
• Drill

• Kreg Jig

• Miter Saw

Step 1: Add Bottom Blocks

Flip the planter box upside down. Take 2x6 and cut 5 boards to 29" in length. Place two boards at each side and the remaining three evenly spaced out. Then attach all boards with 2 1/2" Wood Screws.

    Question 2 years ago

    Nice retrospective piece. I was wondering about the corners and how you manage soil getting around the galvanized. Do you use landscape fabric as a final step before filling with soil?


    Answer 2 years ago

    I used Butyl tape for metal roofing in the corners. I'm sure there are better ways to seal the corners. I'm sure landscape fabric will work.
