DIY: How To Make a big free-standing Planter-box under $150. 73″ x 55″ X 16.50″

Material List Below – BTW if your trying to figure out why the box looks like it does, it is because we built it upside down, so we could put the 5th leg in the middle so it would support the large span, and when we were done, we flipped it over ready to go. Make sure your bottom boards have 1/4″ spacing for good drainage, and staple screen material over the slats so you do not lose valuable planter material. There are lots of planter-boxes you can buy, but nothing gives you a more satisfied feeling as making the planter-box yourself. After-all, you’re making the box to grow vegetables so you do not need to rely on anyone else for most of your survival. Comment below if you want me to give you more details.
