We did some remodeling in our home this past year, and in the process replaced the wood on the stairway. We saved the wood and stacked it up at The Compound awaiting a project or two.
I decided to take this wood and make some raised beds. But first I had to remove the 4" long nails. Now, I'm a girl and this project took me waaaay longer than the Moose would have had to spend, but in the end I did get all the nails out, and the first of what will be 2-3 raised beds.
|the wood on the bottom will be used to make another bed or two, but for now it'll kill the grass and weeds.|
In the second picture below it shows a crate. What do you think about me inverting it and using the bottom of it as the top, adding some sides and making a raised, raised bed? I might give it a whirl. I know it won't last forever, but a coat of wood sealer should help.
