DIY Vegetable Garden

Have limited space, but want to have a vegetable garden? Here is what we did on our driveway with less than $100 in materials.

We built two boxes – one taller for the bottom and the other smaller for the top. The top box has an open bottom allowing for water to drain down into the bottom box. The bottom box also has an open bottom allowing excess water to drain out. To keep the soil from falling out of either box, both were lined with a weed barrier material that allows for air and water to pass through, but not the soil.

Both boxes were built using redwood siding and 2 x 4s in a little under 2 hours.
