Garden Enclosure with Custom Gate

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Mon, 05/29/2017 - 09:54

I found the plans on the website last year but we never got around to building it.  So this year it was first on the list!!  I wanted a large enclosed garden because we had a hard time keeping our dogs out of our last boxed garden.  I followed the plans pretty closely, making minor changes to give us more room for planting. 


I did not use the corner wood pieces for bracing because I did not like how they looked.  Instead I used brackets made for decks that I can't see from the outside of the garden.  I also made a custom gate to mimic the custom railings I had made for our deck.  Added brackets to the outside for hanging baskets. Still needs to be stained and sealed.  Hoping to get that done next week.


Note:  I bought 22 2cubic feet bags of Miracle Grow Flower and Vegetable soil to fill the garden boxes.

Approximate costs were around $180.00 for wood/stain/gate hardware, netting and deck screws.

Approximate costs for the soil was $140.00.


I hope
