This is an amateur demonstration of an easy way to make cedar planter boxes from 1X6 fence boards. Technical design and construction details are shown. Do not use pressure treated wood in direct contact with any planter soil, especially if you plan to grow herbs or vegetables for human consumption. The weak point of this design is in the base, which will be prone to fungal rot if wet dirt ends up in constant contact with underlying wood. To slow that inevitable process, I will put a layer of stones inside the planter at the bottom, overlaid with landscape fabric so that the soil is kept away from the underlying wood. This will hopefully promote drainage. Just like belairdirect simplifies your insurance, we simplify life at the cottage by building planter boxes out of fence boards.
