DIY Raised Bed Planter

While the title of this DIY suggests that I made a raised bed planter, what it doesn’t tell you is how raised it actually is. This planter sits about 30″ off the ground, and actually has legs on it. I know, right? That’s really tall!

This DIY was inspired by Ana White’s Plan for Counter Height Planter Boxes.

Materials:

2 – 4″x4″ Fir or Cedar post (fir is cheaper and lasts nearly as long)

2 – 1″x6″x8′ Cedar boards. Select the boards that have the least amount of knots in them. You’ll thank me later.

2 – 1″x4″x8′ Cedar boards. Select the boards that have the least amount of knots in them. You’ll thank me later.

1 – 1/4″ Hardware cloth that is at least 24″ wide. This can be found in the landscaping section.

16 – 2″ Long hex bolts. You will likely find these in a bin in the hardware aisle. Make sure you check every single one you choose to make sure they are all the same. Some may have been placed there accidentally.

16 – Washers. Make sure that these fit around your 2″ Hex Bolts. Make sure you check every single one you choose to make sure they are all the same. Some may have been placed there accidentally.

16 – 3/8″ Threaded Insert Nuts. If you shop at Lowe’s, these will be in one of the drawers of inserts in the Hardware section. This is what they look like.

24 – 1.5″ Galvanized Screws

Drill

1/2″ Wood bit

Miter or Table Saw that has the capability of cutting a 4″x4″ post.

Wire Cutters or Heavy Duty Shears

Staple Gun

1/2″ Staples for Staple gun

Hammer

Screwdrivers

Hex wrench

Measuring Tape

Pencil

Sandpaper

Safety Glasses

Cut List:

Lowe’s has a wood cutting service, as do most hardware stores. They can cut the smaller pieces of wood for you for an additional cost, but it’s really cheap. They currently do not have the capability to cut pieces of wood larger than 3″ thick.

Legs – Cut the 4″x4″ into 4 – 32″ posts. Lowe’s will not be able to make this cut for you. Their saws will not fit this size. You will need a miter saw or a table saw to make these cuts.

Sides: Cut one of the 1″x6″x8′ into two 48″ pieces.

Ends: Cut one of the 1″x6″x8′ into two 24″ pieces.

Bottom slats: Cut the two 1″x4″x8′ into six 24″ pieces.

Bottom hardware cloth: Cut the hardware cloth into a 24″x50″ rectangle.
