We are finishing up the final touches on the gazebo project which also ended up including doing some landscape work on the back yard. I posted earlier that we wanted to put in a path from our patio to the gazebo and also some raised bed planters for next year. My husband is the gardener so those will be for him. I like to build things but I'm not good at tending to plants, grass and flowers. I've never found gardening to be relaxing like I hear other people say they do.
Here is a quick summary of the building of the raised bed planters and the path installation.

Next it was back to Home Depot for some 6 x 6 x 8 ft lumber to make the planters. We also arranged to have these delivered...see we learned a lot on this project. We had to move all of these from the driveway to where we were building the planters...boy were these things heavy. We used our dolly to move them. It worked very well.
It took us most of the day to finish both planters, but compared to building the gazebo it was an easy day.
