For the bottom planter, we used 8″ boards instead. (If we were to rebuild this wall, I would use all 8″ wide boards because it gives more room for dirt and dries out less quickly.)

Additional 4″ wide cuts were used to close each section of planter by the support posts. We did not want the treated support post wood to leach any non-food safe chemicals into the dirt.

The remaining 4″ wide cuts were nailed into the bottom of each box at staggered intervals in order to provide support.

Each planter was lined with window screen before being filled with dirt and plants. One alternative build would be to make wider planter shelves and set plastic/ceramic planters or pots inside (instead of window screen and dirt)…”

My garden starts up, and it grows more out and up from there. But you would have to see it to believe it. Growing high yield bush variety vegetables vertically using fewer resources. There is a video of this before and after sweet Italian 25 plants garden at the top of my page. It’s ok, trust me on this one.
