Veggie Planter Boxes

Our yard is way too small for a traditional garden. Our garag roof will be perfect to place some raised planter boxes. What dimensions/material/etc should I use. I've started some seed in one of those trays with the little pots and will transfer them to the boxes and I plan to buy some plants from WM.

  • This is a great place to start. You can google box gardens and get TONS of info. Make the boxes deep enough for the roots of the things you grow. Say 6-10 inches deep.
