    Since yours are so deep, I recommend burying a bunch of big empty water bottles at the bottom of your planter to take up space without adding weight. It’s worked great in some of my giant planter pots! 🙂

    Hi Amanda,
    I like your raised garden bed design a lot and I plan to use it to build one for my wife. However, a 4’x2’ size is a little small and I wanted to modify it to build a 6’x2’ size. Do you know if support legs in the middle would be sufficient to support the additional weight of soil? I also like the shelf idea because it gives the structure added strength. Please let me know as soon as you are able. Thanks in advance!!!

    1. I would add some additional support if you’re making it larger – mine had some issues with support after a few seasons of supporting the weight of the soil. So, maybe a bit of extra framing on the inside would be helpful!
