Do you have a privacy fence? Want to use it for more than keeping your dogs in the yard? Build a planter to attach to the fence and plant flowers in it.
You will need 10 linear feet of 1X6 pine or cedar for your project. You will also need 1 5/8 “” wood screws and 3 3 1/2 “ wood screws. Cut the pine as follows:
2 Sides 36” long
2 Ends 5 1/4 “ long
1 bottom 34 1/2 “ long
Put the ends on the sides, using the 1 5/8” screws to secure them together.
The ends should be between the two sides to make a rectangle 36 X 7 inches.
Insert the bottom inside the assembled box and secure it with the 1 5/8” screws.
Secure the finished planter to the fence and a fence post, then fill with dirt and flowers. Make sure you use the 3 inch screws and attach to at least one fence post so the weight of the box doesn’t tear up your fence.
