We are going to build a raised garden bed. It's so easy, that even a blonde can do it. It is going to be 4'x8' (4 feet so we can easily reach everything in our garden)
- (3) 2x10x8 Boards. One board needs to be cut in half, don't worry, they'll do it for you where you buy your lumber.
- (12) 2 1/2" Coated exterior screws
- (4) Fasteners (they're brace thingies)
- (24) 1" Galvanized roofing nails (because they have big heads)
Lay out your boards in the shape of the bed. Make sure your corner is flush. You can use a mallet to pound it nice and tight.
Tap your screw with a hammer or mallet.
Drill in each screw.
STOP! Don't forget that if the 4' board is in the inside (or outside) of the (2) 8' boards then it's going to need to be the same way on the other end too. A blonde ALWAYS forgets this "tip" and has to unscrew and start again!
