This is a cedar and treated lumber raised planter that holds over two cubic foot of potting soil and has a built-in drain out the back so your feet do not get wet. The treated lumber is used only for the frame, no dirt or water touch any wood.

The inner dimensions are 12"x12"x32", and it stands 24" tall. There is a seamless double layer of 4 mil plastic that opens into the drain only and is siliconed. There is also a seamless black mesh inside to keep the soil and nutrients from washing away.
