Hello everyone! I am super excited to share my Elevated Planter Box Plans with you today!
I am sharing the building plans here and a full picture tutorial over at Remodelaholic as my contributor post, so be sure to check out both to get all the awesome details!
I have been wanting a tall planter box for a long time. I personally hate bending over and pulling weeds and having it up off the ground also helps with the rabbits wanting to eat my fruits and veggies!

2- 1x2's @ 24'' long point to long point ends cut at 45 degrees, ends not parallel (top boards ends)
I also choose to add hardware cloth over the supports to help with the soil staying inside of the box but still allowing for drainage. Be sure to see my contributor post for photos of how I did this.
See how easy that was?! It really is a quick project and looks so nice! I hope you make your own!
Now don't forget to check out my picture tutorial at Remodelaholic, trust me I give lots of great tips in those, and you can see my building process, plus more finished photos!
